The nationally recognized festival has been featured on networks such as The Travel Channel, Food Network, The Discovery Channel and the Today Show to name a few.This festival wouldn’t be possible if there were not volunteers to help it run smoothly and that’s where you can help. Partial proceeds from the festival go to support Alzheimer’s Association, Meals on Wheels of WNY and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. By volunteering and helping the festival run smoothly you are playing a critical role in being able to give back to these great organizations in our community.

      Hi Crystal - I lucked out and finished my shift before the rain. I went home right after to get my friend and when we returned, the rain was done :) This was my first time at the festival and I really enjoyed it. Can't wait for next year!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
