I’ve always been an artistic person…not so much in the painting or sculpting sense, but in theatre, music, and most currently, makeup artistry. Since I’ve always been interested in the art scene, I’ve loved going to art shows for as long as I can remember. Fortunately, Buffalo is a huge hub for all-things artistic. We have three great art festivals coming up this month, and here’s all of the information that you need to know!
Jack Craft Fair: Saturday, August 13th – Buffalo Central Terminal
The Jack Craft Fair is probably one of my favorite art festivals in Buffalo. The first time that I went was last year, and I purchased a ton of stuff. I love that this is more of a indie-craft fair with more eclectic artists. Probably one of my favorite purchases was my gold T-Rex air planter from Prismatic Gardens. I hope to add another one to my collection this year!
Here are some of my personal favorite vendors to look out for: The Stitch Bitch, Trebird, Rusterior Designs, Prismatic Gardens, Pickled Punks, Kitch Studios, Buffalo Cake Pops, West Side Stitchery
Lewiston Art Festival: Saturday & Sunday, August 13th-14th – Center Street in Lewiston
It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the Lewiston Art Festival, but I remember it being fantastic. Lewiston is a gorgeous place on it’s own, but add in over 200 artists and it’s a beautiful combination. Definitely one not to miss! You can find the festival map HERE.
Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts: Saturday & Sunday, August 28th-29th – Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo
The Elmwood Art Fest is another favorite of mine…I never miss it! I love the fact that not only can you shop the wonderful vendors lining the streets, but you can also listen to some amazing music on the different stages throughout the festival. Beautiful weather, great art, fantastic music…what more could you ask for?
My favorite vendors to look out for: Chuck Tingley, Vegetabowls, Ginametrical, Inkwell Studios, Alpine Made, Planet Love
