BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Katherine Pessecow, a Volunteer Coordinator for the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts joins us in studio to talk about this years festival. This year is the 20th year anniversary and it takes place on August 24th and 25th.
This years festival will have more than 170 artists and craftspeople, over 50 performances on four stages, a family friendly dance tent and a festival cafe.
The festival also features a cultural and environmental row, where dozens of cultural and environmental organizations showcase the various services available to residents of WNY.
Katherine shares with us the need for volunteers for the free family-craft making area and this years Kidsfest, where children can do hands-on arts projects, see kids-oriented performances, and march in Sunday’s Kidsfest parade.
