The Hudson-Fulton Celebration was a two week-long event that occurred in late 1909 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the discovery of the Hudson River, as well as the 100th anniversary of Robert Fulton’s invention of the steamboat. It took place along the Hudson River in New York, and many towns participated.
