About the event

On Columbus Day Weekend, during upstate New York's explosion of colorful fall foliage, the Letchworth Arts & Crafts Show (LACS) holds its annual festival in the curiously hip village of Perry, NY. For 46 years, the show has brought artisans, artists, and craftspeople from all over the United States and Canada to gather in and around the heart of the Genesee River Valley for a widely acclaimed and much-loved event. Talented artists who offer their finest work, including apparel & accessories, gourmet & culinary delights, ceramics, fine art, home goods & furniture, jewelry, kids' items, and more, are showcased during the celebrated three-day festival. Awards are presented in fourteen different categories. Please visit our website (artswyco.org) for more detailed info, including a location site map (please remember that some site numbers or flow directions may have changed - carefully consider placement before any request.)
