Join NYC Parks and Lotus Music and Dance for this annual Multicultural Celebration and Native American Festival.
This is a free event featuring Native American, Japanese, Brazilian, Flamenco, and Korean dancers and drummers from around the world!
The festival combines a celebration of Native American heritage, culture, and art with the diversity of New York City. Spanish, African, Brazilian, and Tibetan cultures will also be celebrated with food, music, and dancing. Activities include a Tree of Peace planting, international cuisine, Native American storytelling, a powwow, Native American crafts, and a World Market Tent.
In keeping with the underlying theme of environmental awareness and education, DRUMS ALONG THE HUDSON® will continue to feature an Environmental Tent and a free bicycle valet for attendees who ride their bike to the park.
The host for the event will be Sandra Bookman, weekend anchor for WABC-TV and host of "Here and Now” and the afternoon co-host will be Patrick Riley Pop Culture Expert/ Blogger.
DRUMS ALONG THE HUDSON ® features Manhattan’s only open-air pow wow, which is a celebratory gathering of Native American people that will be led by Louis Mofsie and the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers with Host Drums Heyna Second Sons and Silver Cloud.
