Buffalo loves a good party. And good food. And being outside. We love traditions, parades and annual rituals – the days that bring together locals, homesick ex-pats and hip visitors who have picked up on Buffalo’s fun-loving vibe. Now it’s your turn to party like a local. Plan your trip around one of our signature events.
