Description

Taking place in the charming Allentown Historic Preservation District of Buffalo, New York, Allentown Arts Festival entices over 400 artists and hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The festival features masterpieces created by juried exhibitors in the categories of painting, photography, jewelry, crafts, mixed media, and clay. Started as a small art show back in 1958, the Allentown Arts Festival has become both an early summer tradition for a once decaying neighborhood in Buffalo, and a nationally acclaimed arts festival with a prize pool of over $35,000. Organized entirely by a few dozen unpaid volunteers, the festival donates large chunks of its proceeds to various art scholarships and other charitable causes. Even if you are not a huge devotee of arts, but would like to get lost for one weekend in early June, visiting Allentown Arts Festival is highly recommended.
