H. Richardson, Frank Lloyd Wright, and D. H. Burnham. Additionally, the Indian nations, colonial times, Erie Canal and, the Underground Railroad, American history runs throughout Buffalo Niagara, and many of the towns and villages in our region celebrate that history with festivals and re-enactments.

There's no such thing as a Buffalo Niagara season that goes by without something to celebrate. You'll know that Spring has sprung at the Hellenic Festival in May, or the Allentown Art Festival, or Juneteenth in June and the festivals last pretty much all summer long at the Chautauqua Institute. With our agricultural past and present, we celebrate autumn with harvest festivals throughout the region (and with all of our pumpkins, we really like Halloween). Winter brings December's Angel Station Postage Cancellation in Angelica, Santa's Polar Express Ride in Medina and, January's Winter Carnival. Whatever the time of year, Buffalo Niagara loves to celebrate its diversity, history, and culture.
