Attention Drums Along the Hudson Vendors:
Drums Along the Hudson® would like to invite you to participate as a vendor (crafts/food / environmental tent / world market tent) at the Annual Drums Along the Hudson®: A Native American and Multicultural Celebration, will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2016. Drums Along the Hudson® features Manhattan's only open air pow wow, which is a celebratory gathering of Native American people. Sandra Bookman, weekend anchor for WABC-TV, Mara Schiavocampo, Good Morning America and ABC News along with Patrick Riley, Pop Culture Expert/Blogger will host the event. This event 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 and the New York City Council, the event is free to the public, and over the course of twelve years this event has attracted as many as 10,000 visitors. WABC-TV will advertise the event for approximately one month beforehand, which is expected to result in an increased attendance. A multi cultural family-oriented festival, Drums Along the Hudson® includes exhibitions of world dance and drumming traditions as well as Native American crafts, children's activities and international cuisines. 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 lectures and demonstrations by organizations and artists dedicated to promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle.
