Stickball, Hoop Dancing: Choctaw Indian Fair to Celebrate Indian Culture in Miss.

CHOCTAW, Miss.–Celebrating Choctaw Indian Culture in Mississippi is the mission of the 65th annual Choctaw Indian Fair, set to start Wednesday in Choctaw, in Neshoba County. Not only will you get to see this year’s Choctaw Indian princess crowned, but you’ll get world class entertainment and the World Series of stickball.

Stickball is a traditional Choctaw game, called “the granddaddy of all field sports”, by the Choctaws. During the fair the game is played each night and the world championship is decided right here in Mississippi, at the fair.

This year’s entertainment includes Chris Young, to get it started Thursday night, David Crowder on gospel night (Friday), and the Eli Young Band Saturday.

Wednesday’s entertainment includes the Choctaw Indian Princess Pageant, which will be carried live on the fair’s website, starting at 7.

If you’ve never been to the Choctaw Indian Fair, this year is a good time to start the tradition. There are rides for kids and adults every night, and plenty of food and fun.

Here’s the official website:
