  1. Events:
    Submission Grappling PLEASE !!!

  2. Who’s bright idea was it to have a Pow wow in the middle of the week? This is suppose to be a festival for all to enjoy during the weekend. What will happen on Friday & Saturday at the Pow wow grounds?

  3. Good morning,

    My name is Rippy Williams and I started a band with my daughters earlier this year. We call ourselves Rippy and the Sillyette’s. We were recently featured on KRQE News, my daughters wrote a song for Ashlynne Mike the Amber Alert tragedy victim back in May which ended very horribly with Ashlynne’s death. My daughters were interviewed by Channel 13 news about the song they wrote and we also have a video of the song on youtube. My daughters wrote this song all on their own. Here is the link. Rest In Peace Ashlynne Video by Rippy and The Sillyette’s

    My daughter’s Lily(age 11) and Lola(age 9) Williams wrote this song about the recent Amber Alert tragedy vic…

    My 9 year old daughter Lola plays the drums and my 11 year old daughter Lily plays the ukulele/backup vocals. I play bass guitar and sing. Since we started our band earlier this year we have been playing many gigs on the Navajo reservation and into Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona. To date we have played 46 gigs.

    We currently have a 7 song demo CD. We play a lot of oldies music and have written some original songs as well. We can play up to a 3 hour set. We mainly play songs from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Songs from Franki Valli, Dion and the Bellmonts, Del Shannon to name a few. I know I am the girls father but, I do have to say they are pretty good. Every where we play people get a kick out of my daughters because they are so tiny but they play their instruments very well. I think we would be a nice little addition to the Balloon Fiesta. We would love to come and play some music for you all. We are from Gallup.

    Thanks for your time.

    -Rippy B Williams

    We drive a pickup camper and would like to know if you have sites available. We do not need hookups.

  11. Navajo Fair need a better parking car arrange, and have a security watching over all vehicles parking there. before there has been stealing and bumping cars and make damages. Parking cost should cover the security watching over cars….

  17. Michael Hardy says:

    just wanted to know the group singers that took place at the song and dance sunday.

  18. bill smith says:

    Can your website post any results from the fair….rodeo, pow wow, etc. Are did everyone just did the Navajo thing and forgot about it. It would have been nice if you posted daily results of all the activities but I know that is to much for you guys.

  19. navajo nation says:

    In response to red eagle….their is a NAVAJO NATION. Seems as if someone is alittle hurt that they feel they have to down size another tribe. Just let it be known that Navajos are the largest tribe nationally recorded. And recognized. We do celebrate our Nation…the Navajo Nation. On our huge Navajo Nation Reservation. So don’t be a hater…

  20. Using another route going to gallup on Navaho nation parade day gives one the freedom to travel. I mean family times are important if you have to work during week days. So thank you for announcing it on KTNN. Now let’s enjoy the fair you all.

  21. It’s about time some kind of planning was done for through traffic going towards gallup. makes you feel as if though one can still go through with out parking in one place for a couple hours. now that’s thinking about others besides your self. thank you. Lets enjoy the fair.

  22. Teller Rolinda says:

    I would like to take photographs of the pow wow dancers, is that allowed?

  23. I wanted to know if I could get some helpon behalf of my daughter..she is the Rock Springs VeteransPrincess n was crowned the end of July n I wanted to ask if I could be able to get some help in gettng three passes so we can take her to attend all these events throughout the week….

  24. Lilyrose Starr says:

    NOTHING wrong with the name, why change it.

  25. Why everyone so for this fair. Too ghetto in sanitized place to be.

  26. just got done looking at the schedule for this years Fair, was wondering who was in concert Friday night, I have a question, Ace in the Hole, is it just the band of George Strait, or will he be there. Just wondering. I go every year to the concert and I wanted to know if this concert is worth going. Enlighten me please, more detail.

  27. joseph GERONIMO says:

    “Navajo Nation Fair name is KOOL! We America Indians are the ONLY RACE of PEOPLE mentioned in the Constitution of the United States! Our relations with other governments is a political one. Some people prefer “Native” thats ok! We were here FIRST !!

  32. Michael Hardy says:

    who is hosting for song and dance for the 67th annual Navajo nation fair for window rock?

  33. Just a suggestion from experience while attending previous NNF parades. Each year I see people trying to find parking including myself. I rarely see anyone controling how we all should park. It would only make sense to have viewers park their vehicles, not side ways along the street but either back up their vehicles or face the street. If everyone parked sideways, it only extends the lengh of the parade and I truely feel bad for those who have to walk miles and miles. I enjoy the parade each year but it gets frustrated at times.
    Thank you and see you in 3 weeks.

  34. Hello shi’ dine i am part of the northern navajo nation fair committee and we have a new website and the old website is no longer in use but is still up, just to let everyone know. So follow us on the new website, also on Facebook: and Twitter:

    Thank You,
