Wild America Nature Festival
Co-hosted by The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History (RTPI) and Panama Rocks Scenic Park, the first annual Wild America Nature Festival features nationally-renowned speakers; a juried fine nature art and craft show and competition; a local food cook-off competition and farmer's market; live music; live animals, and classes, workshops, and multi-generational activities. The art and crafts portion will feature 40 local, regional, and nationally prominent artists whose work either focuses on nature as a subject area or utilizes natural, organic materials such as wood or clay. Painters, photographers, ceramic artists, woodworkers, gourd art, and others will be represented.
Another highlight of the Wild America Nature Festival will be the Wild America Food Cook-Off, which is sponsored by Edible Western NY. Food vendors including The White Carrot, Labyrinth Press Company, Green Heron Growers, Reverie Creamery, and Superfresh! Organic Cafe will serve both samples and full meals made from delicious, locally-sourced food. Farmers and local food producers will also be present selling locally grown food and craft delicacies.
