Enjoy Educational Family Fun This Weekend [Audio]
If you’re looking for something to do with the kids this weekend that’s different, educational AND fun, then check out the Iroquois Cultural Festival on Saturday and Sunday, May 26th and 27th at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown from 10am to 5pm both days. The festival will highlight select Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) artisans, story tellers, dancers, interpreters, scholar talks, and offer the community a chance to explore the extraordinary Eugene and Clare Thaw Collection of American Indian Art. Entry to the festival is free with paid museum admission.
The highlight of the weekend will be a concert by Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) singer, composer, and Grammy Award winner Joanne Shenandoah in the Louis C. Jones Center of The Farmers’ Museum on Saturday, May 26 at 7:00 p.m.
Below, Garet Livermore, VP for Education at NYSHA, talks with me about the Iroquois Cultural Festival.
