“With more than 170 artists and craftspeople selling work done in 16 different mediums, you’re sure to find something you love,” says event organizers of this year’s Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts.
Taking place this Saturday and Sunday, Elmwood Ave. will be shut down from West Ferry to Lafayette in order to make way for the art, live performances and cultural organizations that will take over the Queen City for the weekend.
A wide array of food vendors will also be on hand to feed the masses expected to make their way into the city including favorites like Helmut’s Austrian Strudel, Molto Buono Gelato and Italian Ice, Lloyd Taco Trucks, Fat Bob’s and more.
The fourteenth annual celebration’s mission is to foster growth in, and awareness of, Western New York’s artistic and cultural treasures and improve the fabric of our unique urban environment. Plus, it’s a great way to spend the afternoon checking out some local finds and treasures right in our own backyard.
Kidsfest is also a popular part of the festival, providing “an imaginative array of free, hands-on art activities for people of all ages and abilities.”
The festival will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and more information about vendors and festival fun can be found on their website.
