You Might Want to Check Out One of the Last Great Street Festivals of the Summer

The 20th Annual  Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts in Buffalo, New York – Saturday, August 24th and Sunday, August 25th

A Brief One from Doug Draper

Posted August 22nd, 2019 on Niagara At Large

Wow. Here we are, heading into the last week of August – ALREADY!

Where did the spring and summer of 2019 go?

It’s not over yet though – not while we still have one of the last great street festivals in our greater bi-national Niagara region to look forward to.

The Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts in Buffalo, New York is on this Saturday, August 24th and Sunday, August 25th from 10 a.m. to 5 and 6 p.m. each day, with several blocks of the avenue open to nothing but art and crafts, live music, food trucks, information booths for environmental and other community groups, and thousands of pedestrians having a good time.

It is a festival that always has this reporter feeling good and a little melancholy at the same time, knowing that there are not too many weeks left until the green disappears from the gardens and trees, the days have more dark hours than light, and the chilly winds of late fall and winter are back.

So get out there and enjoy what is left of the summer while you can and check out this wonderful festival.
