2021 Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts


Due to the requirements put forth in the most recent New York State Advisory for Fairs and Festivals, dated May 18, 2021, we do not feel we can hold the Festival and keep it anything like our previous twenty festivals. The advisories put all of the onus on the festivals and none on attendees for safety from Covid-19 transmission.  While the advisories may change in the coming months, they also may not. We are an all volunteer event and the amount of time and money it takes to put on the festival is too great to chance that New York State may change its advisories.  We will see you in 2022 for a full festival. We do plan on holding some smaller ticketed events in the coming months. Please stay tuned for more info. To read the New York State Advisory click here- 

Shop – With more than 170 artists and craftspeople selling work done in 16 different mediums, you’re sure to find something you love.

See over fifty performances on three stages.

Dance at our family friendly dance tent.

Bring the family to Kidsfest, where children can do hands-on arts projects, see kids-oriented performances, and march in Sunday’s Kidsfest parade.

Environmentalism is a huge part of our mission and Environmental Row is a big part of that, featuring booths demonstrating things we can do to help sustain the planet.

Cultural Row features over 30 local and regional organizations working to make our communities stronger.

Eat – When you are ready for a snack, our festival café will have vendors waiting to serve you.

It promises to be a great time. We can’t wait to see you there!
