Allentown Art Festival
Since its humble beginnings in 1957, this downtown art festival has become one of the largest of its kind in the country. Held the second weekend in June, it draws hundreds of artists and thousands of visitors annually to the historic Allentown neighborhood. Exhibits are set up on Delaware Avenue from Allen to Edward Streets, and on Allen, Edward, and Virginia west to Elmwood Avenue. Art categories include painting, photography, jewelry, crafts, mixed media, and clay. Artists can enter a juried competition with cash awards totaling more than USD35,000.
I have been going to Allentown since I was 9 (I am 53) I have lived all over the US, and been to many other art festivals. Allentown is THE BEST ART FESTIVAL I have ever been too!!! I now travel from Ohio just to go to it. The location is awesome, the people are awesome, the art is unbelievable and unique and I love it!!!!!! If you haven't been, get your butt to the Allentown Art Festival! I love Buffalo!!
Wonderful outdoor art festival. I purchase one piece a year because that is all I can afford. The art is very pricey but it is still worth the walk down Delaware to see what's there and get a fresh squeezed lemonade.
My name is Linda and you can believe me when I say,"ALLENTOWN ART FESTIVAL IS THE VERY BEST EVENT OF THE YEAR". The food, the people, the concerts, the dancing, the chaos, the dogs, and of course MORE and MORE ART! Imagine the music blasting in your ears while eating that wonderful warm sweet bread or HOT PORK SANDWICH...and viewing a favorite painting... You are running to each entertainment site.You are here and You are there, visiting as many art tents as is possible...(huff-puff)... You are seeing all of your friends and EVERYONE you have ever known... while constantly talking to everyone that you have NEVER KNOWN. FUN? Ya think? WHAT COULD BE BETTER? I'll see you all there. Hurry and don't be late!
