Great Lakes Experience Festival

On Saturday, June 21, The Great Lakes Experience (GLE) will present its second annual Festival in Dunkirk’s Memorial Park. The Festival is a free event from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. With live animal exhibits, educational games and informative displays, visitors will enjoy learning about everything from local wildlife to environmental protection. The Festival targets all members of the public, young and old, avid fishermen and those attempting their first cast.

The GLE recognizes the importance of engaging the community and working with them to protect and enhance the natural resources of the Lower Great Lakes ecosystem. Outreach and education initiatives are of the greatest importance in encouraging responsible decisions that affect our lands and waters.

The Festival is our best opportunity to educate the community about local natural resources, celebrate our ecological success stories, and reinforce the simple truth that everyone has a role in protecting our shared environment.
The Festival encourages private organizations and local residents to participate in the mission of Federal and State agencies to protect, conserve and enhance the fish, wildlife and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the citizens of Western New York.

We are looking for corporations, local businesses, social clubs, and environmental organizations to become Festival exhibitors and/or sponsors.

As the Festival grows in the number of visitors, so does the need for more exhibitors and sponsors to help produce such an event.
