Now that the summer time events in the Town and Village are starting to wind down it's time to look ahead to some of the great fall activities that lie ahead. Why not start out with the "Alden Art Show...Art in the Park". One of Western New York's longest running art shows, 57 years, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. September 7 and feature the work of many local and close-by juried artisans. This family friendly event will take place on the grounds of the Alden Firemen’s Park and Bandstand Park (Broadway & Church Sts.) right in the heart of the Village of Alden.

Village Crosswalks

With the warmer weather, the village crosswalks that intersect Broadway at Westcott, Emerson and Church St. are once again in place. State law requires drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly if a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. This law is in effect all year long, even when the signs are not in the roadway. Thank you.
