Organized by Legacy 150 Celebrations Society, the event strives to strengthen community connection, deepen intercultural understanding and enhance civic engagement through one of the world’s most ancient and widely-adopted art forms – percussive arts.

“Even though we can’t be together in person again this year, we can still share in the joy of drumming and celebrate our diversity through percussive arts,” says Richard Wong, National Chair of the Legacy 150 Celebrations Society. “We hope to continue to unite drummers from around the world every year and hope for greater participation, both nationally and globally. Our goal is to have 1000+ individuals or groups join us this year!”
