Whether your child goes to private elementary school in Buffalo, or you live out in the suburbs, there are two festivals this weekend that are sure to be full of fall cheer!
Rock n' Roll Weekend in Ellicottville
You may have heard of the Fall Festival in the lovely little town of Ellicottville, but have you ever been to the Rock n' Roll weekend? Starting this Friday, September 18th, the infamous ski town gears up for fall with a weekend packed with live entertainment.
Students and families of WNY Catholic schools can enjoy live music, featuring a Buffalo-based Fleetwood Mac tribute band, in addition to a plethora of regional musicians. Enjoy the village's eclectic shops and restaurants during the last warm days of the season. On Sunday, for the 16th year the Rock n' Roll weekend will hold the annual Classic Car Show on Main St. from noon until five.
See the Rock n' Roll Weekend website for more information.
Oinktoberfest in Clarence
Take an early trip to the Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence this weekend for one of the Biggest BBQ competitions in Buffalo! Great food, great people, and live music, what more could you ask for?
The live music starts on Friday night, and goes through the weekend. Saturday features a barbecue competition on four different categories - chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder, and beef brisket. The scores of the four different categories determine the Grand Champion. Sunday features an outdoor cooking contest, based on the categories of chicken wings, pork, shrimp, and chili.
