Welcome to Lewiston Council on the Arts


Due to concerns over Corona virus (COVID-19), the April 11th Tonemah and Friends performance and the Literary Arts Cafe events in April will be re-scheduled.


The Lewiston Art Festival is scheduled to take place on August 8th and 9th. As of now it is too early to know if it will take place or not. We will optimistically continue to plan as if it will. Please know that your health and safety is our top priority. As we address a pandemic that will no doubt become a chapter in the history books, our commitment to our artist community will not waiver.

• We are extending the deadline for applications, and waiving late fees.

• The Festival will work with all vendors who may need payment extensions.

• If the Festival is cancelled, all booth fees will be refunded.

• We will keep you informed of all new developments.

We hope you will continue to support our artists, craftspeople and musicians - they are all small business people - the backbone of our Country.

Please follow us on facebook (Lewiston Arts Council) for the latest information about our events.

Applications for artists, music vendors & performers  for the 2020 Lewiston Art Festival can be downloaded here.

Lewiston Council on the Arts is proud to be a part of Arts Niagara an initiative of the Cultural Alliance of Niagara (CAN).   CAN is a member-powered collaborative that positions Niagara County's flourishing arts and cultural sector as a vital regional asset and visitor destination, essential to the region's economic success and quality of life.
We encourage you to check out their website for listings of the programs and activities offered by the participating organizations.


Lewiston Council on the Arts is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all by nurturing a thriving environment for the arts and for cultural activities, promoting opportunities for artists, encouraging public participation in the arts, and actively advocating for the arts.

We bring creative talent and public appreciation together to create an artistic identity for the beautiful and historic Village of Lewiston. Located in Upstate New York along the shore of the Niagara River, our proximity to Canada encourages the bi-national interchange of artists and performers and contributes to the abundant cultural richness of the Niagara region. Lewiston is a 90 minute drive from Toronto, Ontario, less than an hour from Buffalo, and minutes from Niagara Falls, NY.

We hope you will experience and enjoy the quality cultural programs and activities we offer and facilitate throughout the County and know that we recognize your role in supporting our efforts in making this happen.

The support of the community is key to our success and we thank the Town of Lewiston, the Village of Lewiston and our generous sponsors.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to Lewiston Council on the Arts and help to support the arts in your own backyard!
