Family Day is TOMORROW!


Looking for something to do with your family tomorrow? How about dozens of things? That’s what you’ll find at the Hyatt’s All Things Creative Family Day!

Join us on Saturday, February 8 at the Burchfield Penney Art Center from 11 am- 4 pm.

For just $5 per family, enjoy a variety of kid-friendly gallery experiences, hands-on art-making workshops, and even movies. Plus, get inspired by meeting the artists and authors who are part of Western New York’s dynamic creative community.

As a special bonus, Hyatt’s All Things Creative has made it possible for the Burchfield Penney to offer $50 Family Memberships to all new members who sign up at Family Day. That’s a $25 savings. And as if that weren’t enough, each new member will also receive a $25 gift card for any purchase at Hyatt’s All Things Creative.
