Booths featuring jewelry, painting, beading, wood and stone carving and more are planned for the street fair.

There is no admission charge for Apache Jii, an event originally started as a thank you to the San Carlos Apache Nation, which borders Globe to the east. The festival offers a unique chance for visitors to talk one-on-one with Native Americans from throughout the Southwest, making this an opportunity to purchase a very personal piece gift or art piece. There is nothing like choosing a work after visiting with the artist who designed it.

Chat with colorfully-dressed tribal royalty from throughout the Southwest and enjoy their educational and entertaining presentations in the central performance area.

Apache Jii is hosted by the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Apache Gold Casino and Resort, APS, Resolution Copper, Salt River Project and the city of Globe.
