Working together to make Hertel Avenue and North Buffalo vibrant is what drives the Hertel Business Association. Sharing information, net-working, seeking out opportunities, and planning events which bring people to Hertel, helps area businesses and North Buffalo to prosper. That's what "community" is all about!

Italian Festival

The Galbani Cheese Italian Heritage and Food Festival of Buffalo includes local and national entertainment, bocce, Italian Idol contest, cultural demonstrations, crafts, kids activities, Miss Italian and grape stomping contests and Sicilian puppet shows to name just a few of the special events! But the Italian Festival is so much more!
