We have 85 vendors. And we’ve had to turn about 30 others away. These are amazing, hard working, talented artists. Folks who make stunning, Buffalo-themed signs, shirts, towels, jewelry, photographs, paintings, and more.

We have the folks from Eckles in OP with their famous Roast Beef on weck, the gang from Mulberry Restaurant with their incredible meatballs, Riverworks will have their pot roast sandwich, chicken fingers and yummy chicken wings. Belsito Buffalo will bring the heat with their famous stuffed banana peppers! And BBQ from Shish Kabob Heaven where they promise the best bbq this side of heaven!!

In other words, come hungry!

We will also be donating a part of the proceeds to two wonderful local organizations. Carly’s Club and Special Spaces Buffalo.

And then there are the sponsors – (You’ll hear more about all of them very soon!)

    Hi Mary,
    This event sounds awesome and very family friendly! I am with Retrouvaille Buffalo, a Christian Peer Ministry for marriages in need of help. I am wondering if you offer tables for non profits such as ours. Please take a look at our website. We would love to be there to hand out information. Thank you!
