World Fife and Drum Friendship Festival returns in 2023
The Towpath Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps of Macedon, NY are proud to announce the return of the World Fife and Drum Friendship Festival, August 31 - September 5th, 2023. The festival wil be held in conjunction with Wayne County's and Macedon's Bi-Centennial celebration.

Invitations to the event have already been accepted by fife and drum groups from Saint-Tropez, France; Ivrea, Italy, Ghent, Belguim and Bassel, Switzerland.

Towpath's involvement with these European groups started with an invitation to perform at the European Fife and Drum Festival held in Saint-Tropez, France in September of 2011, and, was perhaps the greatest single event the corps has ever been a part of. With the Towpath Volunteers in attendance, the festival was able to call itself a World Fife and Drum Festival. Since then, the Volunteers have performed in Italy twice and in Belguim. The Volunteers hosted the initial World Fife and Drum Friendship Festival in 2015.
