This is a long awaited event that will certainly attract an interesting range of fans. From history lovers to beer buffs, the Fireboat Bash is a celebration that is a mash up of party predecessors which have fallen along the wayside. First off, for anyone who has never taken a ride on the world’s oldest operational fireboat, here is your chance. Then there’s the all-day bash at the infamous Swannie House… there’s trouble a brewin’! Throw in live music from the Steam Donkeys and this is sure to be a beer bash for the record books.
Honestly, it’s going to be an intimate Octoberfest at one of the greatest settings in the city – right on the Buffalo River around the corner from the HSBC Arena and The Cobblestone District. It’s also a short walk from the last stop on the Metro Rail. That means that you can party up a storm and not have to worry about driving home.

First come first serve – ride tix are available at the Swannie House (corner of Michigan and Ohio Streets)
