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

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

To get to know Larkinville better, a spring walk is organized 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.
