2021 New York Festival Schedule

Your festival event guide for Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, the Finger Lakes, Ithaca and all of Western New York State.

Welcome to Western New York State’s most comprehensive festival listing. As a Good Neighbor to the state of New York, I’m happy to help festival lovers find events and things to do in such cities as Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Elmira, Ithaca, the Finger Lakes area and everywhere in-between in Western New York. I’m constantly working hard to make this the state’s best collection of festivals!

If you want festival listings for specific areas of New York State, I currently have a listing for the Buffalo and Rochester Syracuse Areas.

Check back often and tell your friends because this page is always changing!

Keep in mind that the Festival Schedule does NOT include county/animal fairs, conventions/expos or events lacking the 3 essentials of a festival (food, vendors and entertainment). Feel free to contact me if you have a question about your event.

Here are the counties that the Western New York State Festival Schedule reflects:

COUNTIES:

Allegany, Broome, Cattaraugus, Cayuga, Chautauqua, Chemung, Cortland, Erie, Genesee, Jefferson, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Onondaga, Ontario, Orleans, Oswego, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins, Wayne, Wyoming, Yates

Also, please check dates and festival websites in links provided as time approaches, especially for any listings where there is an * (asterisk) next to the date. This means that the date is unconfirmed.

“My Review” means that it’s a link to my review of that festival.

If there is a festival you do not see but would like listed, please Contact Me and let me know about it, especially smaller festivals that don’t have the advertising.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

While I am doing my best to update festival postponement dates, cancellations or note alternative versions, some festivals listed as going on may have been canceled or changed without my knowledge.

Always check festival information before attending as things are constantly changing and I know what it’s like to arrive at a festival location and find nothing.


Stay strong, be safe and let’s festival on together!
