A weekend of glorious weather approaches, which is thrilling in light of Buffalo’s events on the agenda. In fact, there’s not one indoor event on this list, which touches on food festivals, a wild assortment of live music and even activities to appease garden and art lovers.
The scenery at these events is also worth appreciating; there’s Gratwick Park overlooking the Niagara River, the soothing summer concert setup at Artpark, a village-meets-nature setting in Glen Park and the mesmerizing decay of the Transfiguration Church, just to start.
Here’s the lineup for the final weekend of July:
Glen Park Art Festival, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28 at Glen Park between Mill and Rock (Cayuga extended) streets. No cost to attend.
Glen Park is an unexpected serene retreat – replete with an impressive waterfall – in the middle of the bustling Village of Williamsville, and nearby Glen Park Tavern has been a popular meeting place since 1987.
The Glen Park Art Festival returns for a 10th year with 135 vendors participating, plentiful food options, entertainers such as street dancers and the Friends of Harmony, and kids activities. Take a look at the scene in 2018.
Brews on the Water, 4 p.m. Saturday, July 27 at Gratwick Park (1300 River Road, North Tonawanda). Prices range from $40-$75.
Entercom radio stations have banded together for Brews on the Water, a part-wine-and-beer sampling, part live-music adoring festival in North Tonawanda. American Authors and In the Valley Below, two bands played often on Alternative Buffalo 107.7 FM, will serenade an audience that can choose from 100 craft beers to try between 5 and 8 p.m.
Gratwick Park sprawls far enough so you shouldn’t feel too crowded. Peek at the 2017 Smiles gallery for more.
The Flaming Lips, gates at 5 p.m., show at 6 until 10 on Saturday, July 27 at Artpark (450 S. 4th St., Lewiston). Cost is $45 in advance, $50 day-of.
