Enjoy the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of autumn on the Roycroft Campus in the heart of picturesque East Aurora, New York. The Campus will once again host a Fall Festival featuring a diverse group of local and regional artists, antique vendors and cultural groups. Throughout the weekend guests can also visit with animals from Thistle Creek Alpacas and Wild Spirit Education, and take part in artist demonstrations. Other highlights include live music, fresh popped kettle corn, apple cider, hot dogs and food trucks, all surrounded by pumpkins, corn stalks and the changing colors on the Campus grounds.

The Roycroft Campus and its programs are funded in part by Erie County, the New York State Council on the Arts, and a Humanities New York SHARP Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
