One of Buffalo’s most exciting festivals is coming back Memorial Day weekend for its fifth installment to celebrate all things Buffalo at a historic WNY location. The Totally Buffalo Festival will be held this Saturday & Sunday at Buffalo Riverworks.
Building off the success of the first four years, the Totally Buffalo Festival has the honor of showcasing 90 local vendors offering stunning Buffalo-themed signs, shirts, towels, jewelry, photographs, paintings & more.
“We are so excited to be back at full strength,” said Scott Celani, festival co-founder & Buffalo based musician. “As was the case with all local festivals, we had to cancel our 2020 installment due to local COVID restrictions, but we are now back to our full size with no restrictions and we can’t wait!”
Also, in response to the May 14 tragedy, the festival will be collecting donations for the Jefferson Avenue community. Festival guests are encouraged to donate disposable diapers of all sizes, plus wipes and baby items.
“We are committed to doing our part in response to this unspeakable tragedy,” Celani said. “We are coordinating with five incredible local organizations in this effort – EPIC, FeedMore WNY, Response to Love Center, Mother Teresa Home and the Resource Council of WNY. All donations will go directly to the Jefferson community, where the need is so immense.”
The Totally Buffalo Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29. Admission is free and the event features live music and lots of family-friendly activities.
