The Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce invites residents to check out the 37th annual Lewiston Harvest & Hops Festival this weekend. The fall happening will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on Center Street in the Village of Lewiston.
The festival was canceled in 2020. The Niagara River Region Chamber made changes to allow a safe festival this year.
“The fall festival will not be as big as in years past, however, it will feature over 80 craft, farmers market and food vendors,” President Jennifer Pauly said.
A New York state-designated Farmers Market will be featured in the middle of the festival at Fifth Street. Village shops and dining establishments will be open to compliment the event.
“Many of our craft vendors did not make product this year due to the unknown of events,” Pauly said. “We also had vendors ask to take a year off due to the uncertainty of large events and their comfort level. We completely understand and have taken measures to make sure vendors are spaced appropriately. The Chamber of Commerce was uncertain on if a festival would take place this year and we are happy to be able to have an outdoor event!”
Pauly noted Center Street (from Fourth to Seventh) would remain closed for this event from Saturday morning through Sunday evening. There will be no vehicular traffic allowed in this area.
The Harvest & Hops Festival is made possible by sponsorship from Modern Disposal Services, Gutter Logic and 145th District New York State Assemblyman Angelo Morinello.
