Letchworth Arts and Crafts Show

Sunshine Artists' #26 Classic and Contemporary Craft Shows in the Nation

Letchworth Arts and Crafts Show

About Us:

For 42 years, the Arts Council for Wyoming County has presented the Letchworth Arts and Crafts Show (also known as LACS) in beautiful Letchworth State Park in Western New York (USA Today's 2015 Reader Poll's #1 United States State Park).

The Arts Council for Wyoming County produces the event that has grown from a small group of local artists displaying their work outdoors to a show that hosts over 320 artisans, artists, and master craftpersons from throughout the country. This groundbreaking show has been ranked in the top 50 Art Festivals in the United States. 

Make plans now to spend Columbus Day weekend at this "state of the arts" festival. The show hosts some of the country's finest visual artists, artisans, performing artists, craftpersons, as well as many traditional & unique consumable foods. Choose from some of the best pottery, paintings, quilts, fiber arts, handcrafted jewelry, photography, furniture, decorative painting, dried floral arrangements, packaged specialty foods, and so much more. Over 320 artisans display their wares along with many food vendors, live entertainment, and other fun activities for the entire family.

The Show is held at the Highbanks Recreation Area of Letchworth State Park, also known as the “Grand Canyon of the East,” during peak fall foliage season throughout the park.

Admission to the festival is free with an $10 per car entry fee to the park. Handicapped parking is available. Please inquire about curbside pickup of heavy purchases at the information booths at the festival.
