Falls' Music & Art Festival Begins Three-Day Run on Friday

The Freeeek will be one of the performers at the Festival.

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, downtown Niagara Falls may have just what you are looking for, with the third annual Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival.

The first two years of its existence, the festival was held on Main St., but this year Festival Director Rick Grogan and his board have accepted the invitation of the Conference Center and will move their festival to Old Falls Street., a venue that is proving to be a centerpiece for summertime excitement.

The festival’s goal is to promote a positive image of development and growth of Niagara Falls, according to its sponsors, by fostering economic opportunities and cultural diversity through the presentation of a distinct collection of musicians, artists, vendors, and other activities.

The three-day event kicks off on Friday on Third Street with a preview night featuring a pub crawl and a street fair.

On Saturday and Sunday, the festival, which is expected to draw thousands, begins at 11 a.m. and runs to 11 p.m. each day, and will feature over 100 art vendors, food vendors, street entertainers and many popular bands from the local area and from across the border.

The music will run from start to finish on three stages and promises an exciting lineup of entertainment.
