36th Annual Apache Jii Day



The day begins at 9 am in front of the historic courthouse at the corner of Broad and Oak, one block east of the US 60 highway. Opening ceremonies will feature the national anthem sung in Apache.

Booths featuring jewelry, painting, beading, wood and stone carving and more are planned for the street fair. Entertainment, including crown dancers, hoop dancers and native flute players, is planned throughout the day and no one will go hungry if they stop by the food booths which will feature everything from delicious Apache fry bread and Indian tacos to more traditional dishes like acorn stew.

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.

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.

Globe is located 90 minutes east of Phoenix on US 60. For more information on Apache Jii or obtaining a vendor space, please call the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce at 1-800-804-5623.
