The festival is set to run both Saturday, June 11th and June 12th from 11 am until 6 pm on both days.

The festival had been online only for the past two years due to COVID-19, so it will be nice to get out and about and check out all the local vendors in person this year.

The Allentown Art Festival was founded back in 1958 as the Buffalo Art Festival and has grown leaps and bounds over the past 65 years.

Besides being a place to check out and shop local artists, the Allentown Arts Festive is a non-profit that also gives back in the form of scholarships to local students. Last year the festival awarded over $22,000 in scholarships and is looking to do more of the same this year.

The Allentown Arts Festival runs along Elmwood Ave, Delaware Ave, and Franklin Street from the corner of West Tupper Street to North Street in the Allentown neighborhood of Buffalo.

There will be a mix of artists out and about during the event along with live music and food and drink vendors as well.

The weather is decent for the weekend too. Accuweather is calling for a mix of sun and clouds with some scattered rain on both days with a high in the low 70s.
