Wednesday Night Concert Series @ Buffalo RiverFest Park

For years, Buffalo River Fest Park has been hosting a Wednesday night concert series – an event that draws loads of music fans to the Buffalo River (directly across from RiverWorks). 2015 is no different. Starting June 3, and lasting all the way until September 2, the park will be alive with the sounds of rock, blues and even disco.

“Buffalo River Fest Park is abuzz with exciting new projects,” said Valley Community Center Executive Director Peg Overdorf. “The annual concerts are family friendly way to enjoy the many developments happening on our waterfront. We welcome thousands of Western New York residents and visitors for the fourth season of this concert series.”

Now four years running, the Valley Community Association has done a great job in filling the Wednesday night slots with myriad family friendly acts. Food and beer are available at all of the concerts.
