This Friday, March 2 from 5-11pm, the 500 Block of Main Street will be rockin’ as they host another Rock The 500 Block Party. The event was originally thought of while in a meeting with Councilmen Pridgen’s office, Buffalo Place and multiple 500 block business & building owners, who wanted to think of a way to show off all of the great changes that have been happening in the area.
Join them this Friday night for a block-long open house celebrating local art, music & downtown Buffalo.
Don’t miss events at The WNY Book Arts Center, The Hyatt, Spa Alexis, The e-cafe, Jerry’s Photo Shop, The Brian Garman Gallery and a big charity art event at MAIN(ST)UDIOS Gallery featuring over 15 different artists to benefit WNY Heroes. There will even be a visit by Llyod’s Taco Truck.
After party at the Hyatt in the atrium featuring a performance by “Jazz Conception Project”, and great food & drink specials!
