Celebrate fall, carve a pumpkin and enjoy the music of Allen Hopkins from 10 a.m. to noon at Perry’s final Summer Saturdays Arts Series of the season at the Farmers’ Market.
The market, located on the Perry Festival Plaza on Main Street, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 30. This free performance is part of the Summer Saturdays Arts Series, held on the Perry Festival Plaza in downtown Perry.
Hopkins’ musical selections range from American traditional to contemporary, with some Celtic reels, a bit of Klezmer music, and some bluegrass thrown in for good measure. His music is known throughout Western New York and has performed at the New England Folk Festival, the Pinewoods Folk Music Club in New York City. Additionally, he teaches workshops at Hochstein School of Music & Dance in Rochester.
At 10:30 a.m. get in the spirit of the season by carving a pumpkin. Purchase a pumpkin and the market will supply the markers, patterns and safety knives needed to make a vegetable masterpiece.
The Summer Saturdays Arts Series was made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; administered in Wyoming County by the Arts Council for Wyoming County. We are also thankful to Friends of the Summer Saturdays Arts Series and for the generous donation of time from Arts Series demonstrators.
