With a mandate to bring art to the people, this council puts together a series of outdoor events throughout the summer for children and adults. Most events take place at the E Dent Lackey Plaza, across from the Niagara Falls Convention Center and within walking distance of the Falls. Among the events are Kidfest! weekend at the beginning of June, combining entertainment and visual arts at Hyde Park; Friday at the Falls, a concert series in July and August from 7p-9p; and the Saturday Ethnic Festivals. Events are free.
