Freedom Trail, Sat., 9/22/12


The 13th annual Freedom Trail Festival will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, from noon until 6 p.m. at 1425 Main Street near Portage Road, on the grounds of the main library. Celebrating our regions rich contribution to the legacy of the Underground Railroad, the Freedom Trail Festival is a major milestone, and it is hoped that it will serve as a catalyst for others to learn of our regions rich history.

Art and history come together as Main Street comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of music, poetry, dramatic recreations, storytelling featuring stories from the Underground Railroad and some of Western New York’s finest food vendors, as well as local and international talent. Community organizations will also share information on the Underground Railroad and regional programs that can benefit attendees.

The kids’ tent will host activities for children including drumming, dance, arts/crafts, and much more. 

The sponsors for this event include: Niagara University’s Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs, the city of Niagara Falls, and special thanks to the Niagara Falls Housing Authority for their continued support.

Students in need of transportation can sign up in the campus activities and MISA office in lower level Gallagher Center. For more information, please contact David Blackburn at ext. 8510 or or
