The 29th annual WNY Dairy and Agricultural Festival (better known around these parts as Dairy Fest) is scheduled for June 2-4. With less than three months to go, event organizers are looking for some assistance in making this year’s festival a huge success:

All festival details need to be FINALIZED by the middle of April.  Mail in your participant contract as soon as possible.  All contracts (food, trade show, arts and crafts, parade and sponsorship) and chairpersons can be found at

Churches,  local organizations and high school students are asked to get involved, as more new events are needed around the High School’s back circle on Saturday. Do you have some new ideas that you are willing to oversee and organize?   We need you! Call Joan Taylor at 592-4654.

The Farm Tent needs more displays, such as quilting, agricultural programs and organizations, art show, photography show, small/baby animals and more.  Call Beth Friedman at 337-3957.

Eight to 10 more picnic tables are needed for the food court.  Pick up will be on Thursday,  June 1 and return will be on Sunday, June 4 after 5 p.m.  Call Pastor Kevin Friedman at 337-3957.

Do you have something different, unique,  colorful,  musical or flashy  for the parade?  Print out our website parade application and mail in today.  Questions? Call Glenn Cooley at 353-3308.
