The ‘Art’ of Jacktivities — Allentown Art Festival + Artpark Concerts
Another weekend in a Buffalo means another great couple days to enjoy what this city has to offer!
I’ve been on a quest to find new and exciting things around Buffalo and Western New York to try this summer, and in turn, I’m sharing my findings with you! This week, I had to mention one of my favorite festivals of the summer — the Allentown Art Festival!
Even if you’re not big on the whole art thing, you are still going to want to check this festival out. I LOVE this one because I may be art challenged, but the people that have work here are definitely amazing at what they do!
This year is the 56th year the festival is running in the Historic Allentown District of Buffalo. The Festival runs today and tomorrow and is located on Allen Street and Delaware Avenue. Just looking over the list of vendors they have coming, I’m getting excited. There are booths for Jewelry, Painting, Photography, Sculptures and more. Father’s Day is next weekend, and you might be able to find him something truly unique that he will love!
The other part of this festival is the FOOD! Oh, you haven’t tasted such amazing food ’till you check out some of these festivals. I could go just to eat. So this weekend, make some time to experience the Allentown Art Festival.
Also this week, if you are looking for something to do to break up the work week, definitely take in a concert. Tuesdays, Artpark has these awesome shows you should check out. Yes, it’s a little drive to Artpark since it’s in Lewiston, but seriously, the concerts are fantastic, and the venue is awesome. This Tuesday, Artpark welcomes Joan Jett and the Blackhearts to the stage. Concerts take place rain or shine and kick off at 6:30 p.m.
