“We are so impressed with Cameryn’s abilities as a high school student and talented artist, incorporating so many elements that perfectly represent our festival. The herd of Buffalo, a wide variety of food just like our restaurants offer, and the street signs all showcase the best of the Taste of Buffalo presented by Tops,” said Luke Baecker, 2022 Taste of Buffalo chair. “Cameryn’s design can be enjoyed by everyone on this year’s festival poster, which will be displayed inside all of our participating restaurants, and on the cover of our digital festival guide available at TasteofBuffalo.com.”
The festival will return on July 9-10 and will be back in size to its typical footprint in Niagara Square and on a portion of Delaware Avenue.
Organizers said, “We’re looking forward to hosting extraordinary chefs from Buffalo once again on our live culinary stage, and presale food ticket vouchers will also be available for purchase at Tops Markets locations beginning in June.”
