25 Festivals Still Remaining in Buffalo This Summer

Allentown Village Society, Facebook

Buffalo has seen a few big festivals pass through already, as summer is flying by. So what’s left you ask? No worries, we’ve found plenty more festivals and fairs to keep you busy until the sunshine and warm days come to a halt.

Featuring everything from food to music to even insects, these fests are sure to be exciting and eventful! Most of these festivals run a few days long, all day long, so enjoy a few throughout the week or a few in one day! Pack up the kids and get your sneakers on for a day outside enjoying music, culture and more!

Although the majority of these festivals have free admission, a few require a $5 or $10 admission fee for adults (kids are still free). The Brewfest has an admission fee between $30 and $35, and the WNY Blues Festival has an admission fee of $45. Either way, it’s a great time to experience Buffalo, different cultures, food, arts and more! Mark up your calendars and get a move on before the sun turns to shade and warm turns to cold!
