The Hudson Fulton Celebration commemorated both the 300th anniversary of the third of English explorer Henry Hudson's four voyages, as well as the 100th anniversary, in 1907, of the first practical steam navigation by American inventor Robert Fulton. The two celebrations were merged into one event, and took place in September and October, 1909 in New York and on the Hudson River with parades, exhibits and re-enactments.
