Pala, CA – The Pala Band of Mission Indians and the Cupa Cultural Center announce the 46th Cupa Days Brings a Crowd.
After canceling Cupa Days in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cupa Cultural Center and the Pala Band of Mission Indians were excited to welcome back our performers, vendors, visitors, family, and friends on May 1 and 2, 2021. Even though we had to reduce the number of vendors and performers this year to maintain health and safety, we still had an amazing turnout. Thank you all for observing our masking and social distancing requirements while you enjoyed delicious food, Native arts and crafts, and cultural performances.
It was exciting to see so many people come out to enjoy this year’s Cupa Days festivities. The weather was cool and beautiful and everyone had a great time. We even sold out of t-shirts! The Cupa Cultural Center would like to thank everyone who helped us make Cupa Days a success this year. The Pala Senior Department, Pala Utilities, and Pala Tribal Services helped us with preparations and we are grateful, as always, for their help. And of course, the Pala Executive Committee’s support is crucial to our success.
We can’t wait to see you again for next year’s Cupa Days on May 7-8, 2022!
