Three days of art and music on Old Falls Street

Night & Day — "The Voice" contestant, Keith Shuskie and his band Den of Lions, is performing on Friday to kick off the Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival on Friday.

The festival will continue through Sunday on Old Falls Street with a wide variety of live music and artists from throughout the region.

The Music & Art Festival appeared to be in danger of cancellation recently when its founder, Ric Crogan, was indicted on claims he mismanaged funds. Crogan, who privately owns the festival, was not able to speak of the charges but his attorney recently noted that he is confident an investigation will show no wrongful intent.  

Meanwhile, the show is definitely going on. “We’ve got some of the best talent in the area,” Crogan said, including a wide assortment of bands playing at the event for the first time, including A List, Billy Hickey, About Time, Clyde and The Chicago Blues Connection and Jayson Moynihan.

This year's festival will also be more family friendly, Crogan said, with kids workshops planned by Home Depot at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, where children can make bird houses, airplanes and do other wood activities while their parents listen to music.  Also new is a 9 a.m. Zumba Class on Saturday and Sunday near the main stage, followed by a yoga class, with breakfast cooked nearby by staff of Bob Evans Restaurant. The event will also include a motorcycle run Saturday afternoon to benefit the Hope Wings of Flight, which starts at 11 a.m. on Old Falls Street and which will return at 2:45 p.m. in time for riders to hear Junkyard Dogs, Crogan said.
