Rock the BLOCK Party! 500 Block Main St, Downtown Buffalo

you are invited to come party with some businesses and culturals on the 500-block of Main Street. The event is free and open to the public… especially all of the people who work downtown. After all, if downtown workers make an attempt to support these types of initiatives, then that means that we’ll end up with even more shops, galleries and restaurants. Without the support, some areas of downtown will continue to struggle. Here we have a group of young artists and professionals that are putting themselves out there to attempt to create a vibrant scene. The only thing they ask is that you mark this event on your calendar and bring some of your friends and co-workers over on the day of the block party. Heck, even The Hyatt and the Pierce Arrow Museum have joined in to ignite this grassroots undertaking.

block-long celebration of the businesses, galleries and shops on our street! On Friday May 11th from 4-10PM, we’ll be featuring wine tasting, music, art, a handmade marketplace and more at multiple venues on the 500 Block of Main St. Events are free & open to the public!
