Rome Main Streets is always bringing something fresh and exciting to our community with The Bellamy Harbor Arts Festival, formerly Arts on the Erie, an annually held festival of fine arts featuring painters, sculptors, craftsman, musicians and food vendors from our local area and all over New York State. The local appeal of artistry in Rome is not an uncommon thing, and takes on many forms bringing back the culture rich background of our City while introducing a regional collective of various talents that transform the landscape from new culinary delights all the way to the diverse selection of locally crafted products.
Rome Main Streets focuses on the approach of local business involvement in our city by introducing new events to stimulate our economy. The widely successful Soup-er-Bowl did exactly that by creating a soup competition like no other. Local restaurants had the chance to get their names out there to the public, promoting not only their presence on the streetscape but to actually experience their community like never before by interacting more personally with with their fellow Romans. The festival opened up a new social platform for our local restaurants, giving them a chance to show off their culinary skills while conversing with their consumer base and future consumers alike. Paired along with great food was also great music from local bands in the area. Rome Main Streets is always planning new future events that will always add to the history and culture of our community. Putting our community first is what will make Rome a better place to live, work and play.
Rome Main Streets is always excited to bring in fresh talent every year to the Bellamy Harbor Arts festival as well as area favorites returning back to take part in all the fun. If you are an artist wanting to bring your work to the festival, a culinary crusader bringing in some good eats, or a tap/untapped beverage maker of craft beers, wines, whiskeys and more, we would enjoy hearing from you.
