Havasupai Peach Festival.  This peach festival is usually held during the second week of August, when the peaches grown at the bottom of Havasu Canyon are ripe. The Havasupai have always celebrated this festival by holding traditional dancing, contests, and rodeo competitions.

The Grandmother Canyon Gathering is held every year during the fall season, and it is one of the significant Havasupai cultural attractions.
