The 2016 Tournament is Here!

2016 Annual Peace King Cup Fishing Tournament on the Hudson River

We are happy to announce the True Parents’ 56th Holy Wedding Anniversary Fishing Tournament. The tournament will be held for seven days on the Hudson River and adjacent bays in the NY and NJ area. We welcome individuals and families, as well as church groups and clubs.

This year marks the 42nd anniversary of the Ocean Providence, a wide-ranging project established by Rev. Sun Myung Moon, that encompasses both ocean-based enterprises as well as ministries supporting the wise stewardship of the ocean and its resources. Rev. Moon started fishing in the US in 1973 on the Hudson River near Tarrytown.

The First Annual True Parents’ Holy Wedding Anniversary Fishing Tournament was established in April of 2000 on the Hudson River and in August of 2000 in Alaska as an international tournament to be held each year in America.
