Since 1996 Friends of the Great Swamp has hosted an annual “Celebration of the Great Swamp.” We welcome friends,
supporters, members and the community to join us for a weekend of celebrating
the beauty, value and benefits of the Great Swamp. Each year the event is full of fun activities for the whole family, including an art and photography exhibit and sale, educational programs, live animal demonstrations, slide shows, children’s activities, Great Swamp shirts and hats, and much more. In 2016 we premiered our new Great Swamp video featuring the voice of long-time Pawling resident, James Earl Jones.
In 2020, we’re proud to celebrate 24 years of the “Celebration of the Great Swamp!”
We are still working on our plans and what is possible for 2020, check back here when we get closer for all the details!
If you’d like to participate in the juried art and photography show and sale, please see the initial call here, full prospectus coming soon!
