SEE & DO

Buffalo is rich with heritage and exciting cultural destinations.

World-class art collections, sports venues, magnificent architecture, and the largest concentration of performance venues in the United States are all located in the heart of Downtown. Hundreds of events are presented every year at Canalside, and Downtown annually hosts a robust and diverse roster of large-scale special events, which are the envy of major cities throughout the country.

+ ANNUAL EVENTS
