THE VERY BEST EVENT IN BUFFALO, NEW YORK: THE ALLENTOWN ART FESTIVAL – You can believe me when I say,"ALLENTOWN ART FESTIVAL IS THE VERY BEST EVENT OF THE YEAR". The food, the people, the concerts, the dancing, the chaos, the dogs, and of course MORE and MORE ART! Imagine the music blasting in your ears while eating that wonderful warm sweet bread or HOT PORK SANDWICH...and viewing a favorite painting... You are running to each entertainment site.You are here and You are there, visiting as many art tents as is possible...(huff-puff)... You are seeing all of your friends and EVERYONE you have EVER KNOWN... while constantly talking to EVERYONE that you have NEVER KNOWN. For two whole days everything else going on in the world is moot. FUN? Ya think? WHAT COULD BE BETTER? I hope see you all there. Hurry and don't be late!
Artists galore – The best art festival I have ever been to! Great selection, and it's so interesting to see all the up and coming artists displaying their work.
Artsy creations – I would never miss this event. They have all different kinds of art not just paintings. Pottery and jewelery quite popular. Garden decorations and fountains are enchanting. This event is a great way to spend the day downtown. There is plenty of food too.
