Inaugural Larkinville Block Party and Fall Festival

For the first time ever, Larkinville is throwing a Block Party and Fall Festival. After all, the district is becoming a bustling neighborhood of sorts, by constantly attracting new tenants to the ever-popular site. So it was only a matter of time before all of the businesses got together to throw a block party, featuring activities that include a vendor market, live music, alpacas, a mural painting, food trucks, kid-friendly activities, lawn games, and a vintage care show.

The neighborly businesses throwing the big street party (Seneca Street will be closed to traffic) are Larkin Square (including the Filling Station), Hydraulic Hearth, Swan Street Diner, Buffalo Distilling Co., Flying Bison Brewing Co., Eckl’s, and Kornerstone Café. Adding to the zestful affair are the following market vendors:

Collectively, the regional vendor participants offer an incredible cross-section of artisanal and craft products from the Greater Buffalo region that you will never find at one setting again. Plus, many of the vendors are representing seasonal wares that go hand-in-hand with the cooler months ahead.
