The Allentown Art Festival: A Cultural Classic in Buffalo for Over 60 Years

As one of the oldest summer events in Buffalo, the Allentown Art Festival has become an integral part of the city’s cultural scene. With its origins dating back to 1958, the festival has evolved over time into one of the most anticipated events of the year.

The 2023 festival is scheduled for June 10th and 11th, and will feature a fantastic array of activities and events for people of all ages. Held in the charming corner of Delaware Avenue and Allen Street, the festival takes on a bohemian and artistic vibe, as visitors are treated to a feast for the senses.

Both locals and out-of-towners are drawn to the area during the festival, and with good reason. Allentown is packed with shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and bars that cater to a wide range of tastes and preferences. However, it’s during this festival that the district truly comes to life, exuding a vibrant urban energy and funky ambiance that is unforgettable. From live music and street performers to local vendors and artists, there is something for everyone at the Allentown Art Festival.

Make plans to join us in celebrating one of Buffalo’s longest-standing traditions, and experience the unique culture and charm of this beloved festival.
