The Beacon Two Row Festival is an historic event not to be missed!

Saturday August 3rd 2013  /  Riverfront Park, Beacon NY  /  11am – dusk

Suggested Donation: $5, no one turned away.

Bring your family and spend the day experiencing the energy and wisdom of the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign. Enjoy Native American music, authentic craft, storytelling, food and history as we welcome Two Row canoe flotilla to Beacon. The flotilla will consist of passionate Native Americans and other Americans rowing side by side as they make their way from Albany to the United Nations in New York City.

Thousands of people will gather at the rivers edge to celebrate the very simple yet vital message of the Two Row Wampum Treaty. We will come together to embrace a commitment of friendship, ecological stewardship, peace between peoples and living in parallel forever.

Local artists are showing their support of the Two Row Wampum Treaty by creating beautiful Totems which will be on display at the festival. These 8′ tall totems will tower above festival attendees to create a colorful and interactive experience. After the event these totems will find a permanent home around the City of Beacon as a reminder to our commitment of friendship, ecological stewardship, peace between peoples and living in parallel forever.
