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 a fall festival. It’s fun for all ages, with live music, food and drink, vendors, a kick-off bike ride to historic parks around the city and a kids’ area with family-friendly entertainment and activities.
