The Navajo Woodstock

Labor Day legacy

'Woodstock of the Navajo Nation' a Ganado traditionIt’s been called the Woodstock of the Navajo Nation. It could also be compared to Willie Nelson’s Annual 4th of July Picnic.

But singer/songwriter Wilfred “Willie” Jeans—along with his family and friends—call their annual event the Labor Day Jam. It’s a two-day gathering west of Ganado that features free musical performances by regional bands and musicians, acoustic guitar raffles, arts and crafts and food vendors, and free campsites for those who want to stay overnight.
