PERRY — Those who attend this weekend’s Letchworth Arts & Crafts Show & Sale can expect a “funtastic” time, the Arts Council for Wyoming County says, but they need to keep some safety and parking procedures in mind.
The event takes place today through Monday at Perry Village Park.
“With COVID-19 as a continued concern, ACWC will be prioritizing providing the highest level of safety for both artisans and attendees with safety procedures that will reflect current CDC guidelines,” the ACWC said Friday. “With these concerns in mind, masks will be required for all guests on shuttles to and from the park and are recommended for all guests throughout the event; social distancing protocols will be observed and no pets will be allowed in the park during the show.”
Attendees should come prepared to pay a $10 parking fee which will cover the shuttle ride to and from the event venue.
There is no public parking at the park. Customer and additional parking will be at parking lots at the entrances to the village on North Center Street (Route 246), North Main Street (Route 39), and South Main Street (Route 39). There will be a shuttle service from those lots to the Village Park.
Parking for artisans will be behind the Firemen’s Building, the ACWC said on its website, artswyco.org. There will be spots available for parking trailers behind booths, but only a limited number.
About 50 to 60 Porta Potties will be scattered throughout the park. The Perry Park facilities will be closed to all (artisans and public).

“The Arts Council for Wyoming County in partnership with the Perry Fire Department and the Perry Rotary Club have pulled out all the stops to give you a … food-filled, fall shopping weekend at the 45th Annual Letchworth Arts & Crafts Show & Sale this Columbus Day Weekend,” the ACWC said in a press release.
“This year’s show will feature over 200 artisans and food vendors, live entertainment and an expanded Kids Zone. As you shop, you’ll be able to choose from some of the best handmade pottery, paintings, quilts, fiber arts, handcrafted jewelry, photography, furniture, decorative painting, dried floral arrangements, packaged specialty foods …”
The Perry Fire Department and the Perry Rotary Club have worked hard to provide attendees with fantastic food vendors and a state-of-the-art parking and shuttle system, the ACWC said.
“The ACWC is deeply grateful for these partnerships and to the village of Perry for hosting the event,” the organization said.
