Welcome to Winslow
Late in August of each year, visitors from all over the world travel to Winslow and on to the Hopi villages to witness the most spectacular religious rite in the world, the Hopi Snake Dance. The ceremony is a prayer for rain and is performed with live rattlesnakes. A caravan sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce leaves Winslow on the morning of each dance. Anyone interested in traveling with the caravan (for which there is no charge) may write the Chamber of Commerce, Winslow, Arizona, and will be notified of the exact dates.
