One of the city’s most anticipated annual concert series has announced its 2016 live music line-up. Party on the Portico is the Buffalo History Museum’s answer to how to best celebrate the summer months in the city. The shows, held on the museum’s portico, overlooking Mirror Lake and the vibrant cherry blossoms, attracts hundreds of music fans who show up to eat, drink and socialize at a venue that offers unparalleled vistas onto Delaware Park.
Lovingly referred to as “The best porch in town”, the concert series has become a time and a place to celebrate Buffalo’s steeped culture, including the Japanese Gardens and some of the hottest live music acts in the land.
