The annual mother-loving festival Mamapalooza reaches venues in the US, Canada and Australia during the month of May, and showcases moms as musicians, artists, comics, writers, craftspeople and athletes. The event is dedicated to serving, celebrating, inspiring and encouraging women through a strong message of personal and artistic empowerment. It’s the only cultural event of its kind, and it’s just in time for Mother’s Day. Mamapalooza is celebrating its seventh year—and its third year here in Buffalo—and will feature local artists Annette Daniels Taylor, Sandra Gilliam, Cynthia Maxwell, Lydia Baines and many more. Head over to Allentown’s Rust Belt Books on Friday (May 11) or Saturday (May 12) between 7-10pm for the event, which is co-sponsored by Just Buffalo’s “The Big Read.”
