In a day filled with music and revelry, master drummers bring African instruments alive on multiple stages. Move to the rhythm of the djembe and shakeree, listen to the strings of the kora, enjoy African folklore, watch cooking demonstrations, and make a djembe to take home.

Also experience a re-creation of a colonial cross-cultural event known as Pinkster, first celebrated in the Hudson Valley in the 17th century. Pinkster was a joyous, festive occasion that beckoned the arrival of spring. For the African community subjected to enslavement, it was a profound opportunity for family members and friends, many of whom were split off and spread out from each other, to come together.
