This World Fife and Drum Friendship Festival, will be an great achievement for the hosts, Towpath Volunteers
Fife and Drum Corps of Macedon, NY. It accomplishes many goals, including:
Bringing Fife and Drum to and sharing our experiences with the local community;
Continuing to cultivate relationships with our European Fife and Drum Guests;
Showing our European friends what the USA and New York are really like;
Fostering Patriotism and our American Heritage to all who come to the Festival.
While not everything scheduled event or performance is open to the public, most all Saturday and
Sunday performances are. Access to our guest will be available for photos and conversation,
though many do not speak English, throughout the festival.
We encourage everyone to come to any of the festival performances and show our guest what it means to be an American
and good old fashion American Hospitality! We want this adventure of our European Friends to be a trip of a life time
and something they can talk about for the rest of their lives.
