2024 Spring Stroll through Larkinville includes B Sweet Designs, Meet and Eat Charcuterie, LE 3 Daycare, Breathe Organic Salon, and D.A. Taste

Larkinville is a shining star in Western New York. Who would have thought that in such a relatively short period of time, the neighborhood would be home to such a wonderful array of businesses. Going hand-in-hand with those businesses, a healthy calendar of events is another part of Larvinville’s success story. Event programming – including pickleball, plogging, food truck rodeos, Author Talks, the Live at Larkin music series, and Beatles Night (July 24) – makes this charming neighborhood an incredible place to visit, and live.

In order to get to know Larkinville more intimately, a Spring Stroll is held each year. This event is the perfect opportunity to explore new businesses, pop up markets, and outdoor patios, while enjoying an afternoon of live music.
