Give the gift of Bread!

This event provides a unique opportunity for local residents to become involved by "extending a hand of friendship" to the Native guests. Following the custom of Native Americans and First Nations of Canada, who show hospitality to their visitors by presenting gifts, the community welcomes the participants through giving gifts of homemade bread. 


Wow, we are thrilled that you are considering donating to the Penn Cove Water Festival! Your contribution will make a huge impact in our mission to provide a space to enjoy Native American canoe racing, entertainment, crafts and culture and by giving everyone a chance to learn about, appreciate, and protect the environment in which we all live. We can't thank you enough for your support and generosity.
