Environmental Row

The Festival is committed to sustainability. Did you know that every year Festival plants a tree on Elmwood to offset our carbon footprint?
Learn about wind and solar energy, and how to decrease energy consumption. Check the status of our local waterways and what’s growing green in Buffalo. The Festival has had a solar powered stage for 12 years! Please become informed and get involved with local environmental groups! If possible, walk to the Festival, carpool or ride your bike!
