Who We Are
The only purpose of the Allentown Association is to serve its community. It does that through efforts to beautify the neighborhood; to encourage historic preservation and property maintenance; to promote appropriate business development, to fight crime, and to protect and enhance Allentown’s unique urban ambiance.
There are many different ways to contribute to the improvement and promotion of Allentown. Whether it be attending litter mob, our monthly street cleaning, volunteering at the Allen West Festival booth, or helping out at the office, your time and energy makes all the difference! We look forward to meeting you soon!
Become a Member
For over fifty years, the Allentown Association has been reaching out to the community through its very active volunteer-based committees. By becoming a member, your tax-deductible donation enables the Allentown Association to continue to carry out our essential work of community service.
Your generous contribution will help the Association improve Allentown in a variety of ways. Whether it be a new sidewalk planter, start up funds for a local business initiative, or simply the purchase of office supplies, all contributions are dedicated to further the Association mission to serve the Allentown community.
Allentown’s gallery walk, known as “First Fridays”, has grown into one of the most popular monthly events in the city of Buffalo. Join us on the first Friday of each month (is there a time?), where Allentown art galleries, performance artists, musicians, restaurants, retailers, and more, come together to create a rich cultural attraction.
Allen West Festival
Founded in 1998, the festival is held the 2nd weekend in June every year and features over 150 artisans, vendors, restaurants and local businesses. While it happens concurrently with the Allentown Art Festival, it is a distinct event organized by the Allentown Association to promote local artists and Allentown Businesses.
Allentown Fall Festival
A recently-revived annual tradition, this event celebrates the changing of the seasons in our historic district with fun for all ages. This year will feature a kids’ area with family-friendly entertainment and activities at our partner organization, the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Historical Site.
Allentown is Awesome!
