Hot 5: Quaker Arts Festival
I grew up in the Southtowns, and if you grew up in the Southtowns, there are certain must-attends: the Fair, the Eden Corn Festival, and the Quaker Arts Festival. This year, the QAF celebrates its fiftieth birthday, a real milestone for longtime sponsors, the Orchard Park Jaycees. For the uninitiated, the festival features the work of roughly 300 vendors in a variety of fields—fine art, graphics, sculpture, photography, ceramics and pottery, leather, glass, jewelry, woodworking, and more.
10 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturday, September 17, and 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on Sunday, September 18, on the Orchard Park Middle School grounds, 60 South Lincoln Ave., Orchard Park; 667-ARTS or www.opjaycees.com.
