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.
