SENECA NIAGARA RESORT & CASINO TO HOST 2016 NIAGARA FALLS MUSIC & ART FESTIVAL

Free community event set for Seneca Square on June 17-19

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – One of the area’s most exciting outdoor community festivals is teaming up with the region’s hottest entertainment resort destination for a fun-filled three-day event that everyone will enjoy.

Officials from Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino and organizers from the Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival announced that the 4th Annual Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival will take place in Seneca Square, in front of Seneca Niagara, on June 17-19. The free community event will feature a wide collection of artists, live music, vendors, food and beverages, and activities, all centered on community and family fun.

“We are thrilled to bring the Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival to Seneca Niagara to help make this year’s festival the best yet,” said Audrey Oswell, chief operating officer, Seneca Gaming Corporation. “Millions of people recognize Seneca Niagara as the complete destination for entertainment and excitement, and, each year, thousands of people make the Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival a central part of their summer plans. Bringing our two organizations together will make for one of the most exciting weekends of the summer.”

The Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival was founded by Niagara Falls native and businessman Rick Crogan in 2010, as the Main Street Music & Art Festival. As the event grew into one of the area’s premier events, it was moved to Old Falls Street and renamed the Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival. Last year, approximately 35,000 people attended the festival from around the world. The festival has listed as a recommended attraction by the I Love New York campaign and by Amtrak Weekend Getaway. The growth in popularity led Crogan to discuss a partnership with Seneca Niagara.

“The energy and excitement surrounding the festival has been overwhelming. More and more people each year are coming together to enjoy a vibrant, artistic and eclectic experience of what makes this community great,” Crogan said. “Seneca Square is going to come alive during this year’s festival and we couldn’t be more excited to work with the team at Seneca Niagara.”

A complete entertainment line-up for this year’s festival will be announced in the coming weeks.
