The Historical Village of East Aurora is located in the Town of Aurora, approximately 20-minutes from downtown Buffalo sitting just southeast of the city. America’s Arts and Crafts movement began in the late 1800,s- early 1900’s with Roycrofters. It was a reformist community of craftworkers and artists which formed part of the Arts and Crafts movement in the United States. Elbert Hubbard founded the community in 1895, in the village of East Aurora. The work and philosophy of the group, often referred to as the Roycroft movement, had a strong influence on the development of American architecture and design in the early 20th century. The artsy, creative vibe is alive and well with East Aurora’s many festivals including, but not limited The Roycroft Festival, Sidewalk Festival and the booming MusicFest that attracts over 12,000 for its 1-day festival in early June and of course the Taste of East Aurora in mid-September. The village has many turn of the 20-century homes and mature treed lined streets. An original 5 & Dime store, Vidler’s, from the 1930’s. An original movie house and the Roycroft campus. A poplar Christmas shopping destination with its many boutique style shops and diverse restaurants and craft beer brewery at 42 North.
