The Summer’s Not Over Until The Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts Has It’s Weekend
Sadly enough, that time is nearly upon us. Thankfully, we can celebrate the end of summer in the city with a final farewell to our favorite artists at the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts.
Call it what you will: Elmwood Art Festival, Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts, Elmwood Art Fest, we know what you mean, and we all love it! While not quite as large as it’s counterpart, the Allentown Art Festival, the Elmwood Ave Festival of the Arts always offers plenty of pleasing sights in the center of the historic Elmwood Village.
The Elmwood Art Festival distinguishes itself from other Art Fests by it’s emphasis on not only paint, photography, and sculpture mediums, but also by celebrating performance art, environmental endeavors, and differing cultures. The Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts may also just happen to be the most kid friendly of all the art festivals because of it’s Kidsfest tents and performances.
Much like all the other festivals in Buffalo, the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts won’t force you to forgo any food. Their Festival Cafe line up is offering all types of great local fare such as The Black Market Food Truck, Fat Bob’s BBQ, Lloyd Taco Trucks, The Jewel of India, Lombardo’s Pita Place, Lexington Cooperative Market, and much, much more! In fact, I’ll most likely be at this year’s festival for equal parts art and food.
If you enjoyed the Allentown Art Festival, you must attend the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts. It’s the best chance to catch your favorite artist one last time, buy that piece you’ve been dreaming about for months, and enjoy the final days of warm, sunny weather this city has to offer while walking around a beautiful neighborhood.
