Summer in the City

Summer in the City

The Batavia Business Improvement District (BID) will once again host the 13th Annual Summer in the City Festival in Downtown Batavia on Saturday, Aug. 15th, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Last year, the event brought in more than 5,000 people from all over Western New York with over 200 classic cars. This year is expected to be even bigger and better.

The festival includes the annual Don Carroll 5K Race, a Summer Car Cruise, and at least 50 food and craft vendors. The KidsZone will include a Eurobungy (NEW), bounce houses, and lots of activities including workshops by The Home Depot. You can also participate in the GOArt! “Chalk the Walk” to win several prizes. (You must register with GO ART! to participate in this activity.)

New to the festival is a Bicycle Wheelie Contest by Adam Miller Toy and Bicycle on Center Street.

Entertainment for Summer in the City includes the Old Hippies (1-2 p.m.), OHMS Band (4-6 p.m.), and, of course, Terry “Elvis” Buchwald (7-9 p.m.).

Event Date and Time: 
Saturday, August 15, 2015 - 11:00am to 9:00pm
