Car Stories gunning its engine for 2015 Buffalo Infringement Festival!

Car Stories is coming once again to the Buffalo Infringement Festival!

Created in Montreal in 2001 and promptly kicked out of the so-called St. Ambroise Fringe Festival after a corporate sponsor was offended, Car Stories had to quit the corporate Fringe and redesign the game. As such, the infringement festival was born in 2004 to prevent corporate behaviour from ruining the arts. Car Stories has been playing infringement festivals ever since!

For the 11th annual Buffalo Infringement Festival, Car Stories will once again gun its engines in Allentown and welcome both performers and spectators into this theatrical wonderland!

Performers are welcome to bring their cars, ideas and zany characters to create the performance. Email Donovan King at to learn how to get involved or just show up at Nietzsche’s at 3 pm on Friday, July 31st! Car Stories is the sum of all the parts put in by local artists, so feel free to jump right in!
