Featured Event

The 35th Annual Lewiston craft show receives an upgrade this year as the Lewiston Harvest & Hops Festival on Saturday, September 22nd and Sunday, September 23rd from 10am - 5pm in the Village of Lewiston.  The fall festival will feature over 130 craft and festival food vendors. Additional festival vendors include Brickyard Brewing Company, Community Beer Works, Black Button Distillery and Tommy Rotter Distillery.  There is also a NYS Designated Farmers Market in the middle of the festival at Fifth Street. Village shops and dining establishments will be open to compliment the fall festival. 

Last year Center Street was closed to vehicular traffic for the festival which helped eased congestion for attendees.  Jennifer Pauly, President of the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce mentioned that the name change was actually started in 2017 with local artist Nicholas Costrino designing the logo. "We were finally able to have all of the components come together this year and was able to unveil our new look and new vendors. We are excited about incorporating the Brickyard Brewing Company into the festival.  The addition adds a new dimension allowing us to showcase Lewiston and will be more enjoyable for attendees."

The Brickyard Brewing Company will play a major role in the "hops" portion of the festival. They will be celebrating Oktoberfest throughout the weekend with new beer releases.   In addition, special edition releases will be available at local restaurants for the weekend including:

German Kölsch - Apple Granny   Kölsch is a beer brewed in Cologne, Germany. It is a clear, top-fermented beer with a bright, straw-yellow hue similar to other beers brewed from mainly Pilsner malt. Kölsch is warm fermented at around 13 to 21 °C, then conditioned by lagering at cold temperatures.  A very approachable and easy drinking style, light and tasty. 

German Pilsner - Brewed and Bottled and Stone House  Quite possibly the most iconic beer style in modern history, Pilsners are characteristically light in color and have a very short finish. The world over, pilsner-style lagers have become the standard beer for many reasons, and American craft brewers have worked hard to put their own unique spin on this classic German beer.



Hefeweizen - Casa Antica Arguably one of the most recognizable beer styles, the German-style hefeweizen offers a striking beer experience thanks to the use of distinctive wheat malt, unique yeast and uncharacteristic appearance. This wheat beer breaks from the German beer mold, showcasing yeast-driven fruit and spice as well as bearing an eye-catching mystique. The refreshing qualities of this highly-carbonated style have kept it alive for centuries.

Altbier - Gallo  Originally from the Düsseldorf area of Germany, the German-Style Brown/Altbier strikes a balance between hop and malt flavors and aromas, but can have low fruity esters and some peppery and floral hop aromas. Before Germany had lager beer, it had ales. Alt, meaning "old," pays homage to one rebel region in Germany which did not lean into lagering.

The Harvest & Hops Festival is made possible by sponsorship by Modern Disposal Services, Brickyard Brewing Company, Hardison Funeral Homes, Fred Blue - Great Lakes Real Estate, and NYS Legislator Angelo Morinello.

Another addition to the festival was made possible by the Lewiston Council on the Arts.  The festival will include Chainsaw Art with Chainsaw Chix Aya Blain at the International Peace Garden both Saturday and Sunday during festival hours.  The Chainsaw performance is sponsored by New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature with a Decentralization grant administered through Arts and Services Initiative (ASI).
