The Quaker Arts Festival is the largest outdoor suburban arts and crafts festival in the Southtowns. Located just 15 minutes south of Buffalo, NY, the Quaker Arts Festival is held the third full weekend in September. There are 300+ artists and craftsmen that come together to show off some of their best and most creative work. The Quaker Arts Festival is a juried show, awarding over $10,000 in prize money to our top entries.
The Quaker Arts Festival began over 45 years ago by the OP Presbyterian Church and remained on their property from 1961 to 1964 when the Festival grew too large to remain at that location. The Jaycees took over the Festival in 1965 and have been running it ever since. We are now into our fourth decade of coordinating, organizing and presenting this premiere arts and crafts show!
The Festival is held at the Orchard Park Middle School Campus at the corner of Route 20A and S. Lincoln Avenue. The hours are 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday.
