Kick Off for Parkside Artisans Market Series

Starting on Sunday, August 20, 2017, the Parkside Community Association (PCA) will host the inaugural Parkside Artisans Market – the first in a series. The series will continue for two additional Sundays, one on September 17, and another on October 22. Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, we will see even more of these orchestrated in 2018.

This initiative will shine a light on numerous skilled artisans in WNY, along with a number of unique businesses that contribute to this city’s vibrancy. The outdoor market will take place at the corner of Parkside Avenue and Russell Street, at an obscure park area.

This “pedestrian HUB” has flown under the radar of the community for years. Now it will be activated in a way that will help to create a more vibrant intersection, thus helping the neighboring businesses. What a wonderful idea, to take a lifeless swath of concrete and introduce programming of this nature. This could lead to even more interesting events and gatherings in the future.

“We are excited to bring together some amazing artists that live within walking distance of the area as well as others from across Western New York. We want to further Parkside’s brand, build off of its beautiful neighborhood of architectural assets, and uniquely designed street network by Delaware Park” says Amber Small, Executive Director of the PCA. “We are working to strengthen our pedestrian hub and collaborate with arts and local businesses to transform the way people utilize this space.”

This market also takes a number of Hertel enterprises and wrangles them together at a satellite location, which should be very interesting and exciting. Guests can also expect to find food trucks and ice cream!

The event is free to attend, and open to the public.
