A FREE, multi cultural family-oriented festival, the Eleventh Annual Drums Along The Hudson: A Native American Festival includes exhibitions of world dance and drumming traditions with host Louis Mofsie and the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers, Heyna Second Sons and Silver Cloud Drum Group, as well as Native American crafts and international foods. The festival combines a celebration of Native American heritage, culture, and art with the diversity of New York City itself. In keeping with the underlying theme of environmental appreciation and education, Drums Along the Hudson will continue to feature an Environmental Tent which will include appearances by Captain Planet, courtesy of the Captain Planet Foundation.
Drums Along the Hudson is presented by Lotus Music & Dance in collaboration with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, sponsored in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Councilman Robert Jackson and WABC-TV.
This year, we will have a free bicycle valet for attendees who ride their bike to the park. The event will take place rain or shine.
To reach Inwood Hill Park, take the 1 train to 215th Street or the A train to 207th Street. By car, it is just north of the Dyckman Street exit off the Henry Hudson Parkway.
