Lewiston Village Board to vote on future location of Peach Festival


LEWISTON, N.Y. (WIVB)– UPDATE: Lewiston leaders are pushing back their discussion on what to do with the Peach Festival.

The village board was supposed to vote on next year’s location tonight, but that has been tabled.

This allows the Kiwanis Club and the village to meet with the company who runs the attractions for the festival. The village is expected to take the issue back up in September.

This will not affect next month’s Peach Festival held on September 5-8.

ORIGINAL: A vote in Lewiston this week could impact the future of the Peach Festival.

This week, the board will decide on where the festival will be held in 2020.

The Kiwanis want to keep it at Academy Park, but the mayor wants to move it to Artpark.

The debate centers around changes to Academy Park. Kiwanis says the mayor wants to make specific improvements that would make it difficult to hold the festival there.

The Village Board will vote on the proposal tomorrow night.
