The Music is Art Festival is a free event for the entire community.  It celebrates our local music and art scene, provides a unique look at our city and encourages people of all walks of life to come and enjoy our multi cultural artists in a safe environment.   This is not a money-making event.  It is a gift to every person in Western New York.  We believe that we have something special in Buffalo and we are just trying to enhance what the music and arts community have created.

Please consider being a part of something that is very special to us and to the people in Western New York.

Thanks to our sponsors:

Since 2003 the Music is Art Festival has been a free event highlighting the artistic talents of individuals and groups from within our Western New York community.  The Festival has become Buffalo’s most extensive exhibition of local art, dance, and music.  The Festival draws over 20,000 throughout the day to be entertained by this multi-sensory event; part concert, part bazaar, street fair and art gallery.
