Last year, I was referred by a friend to check out this new weekly event along the water, featuring food trucks and live bands. I found it to be a wonderful addition to the many outdoor summer events happening all around our beautiful city. I attended several of these weekly events, and enjoyed meeting neighbors, business professionals, and all others who gathered for an early evening of food, libations, warm lake breeze, and great live music.
“We are very excited to host Waterfront Wednesday’s for the 2nd year,” Kevin Dagher expressed to me. “This year we have a great band line up and exciting and new food trucks coming such as the new Teds food truck.” Kevin is the creator of the event. He recently graduated from UB with a degree in environmental design/urban planning and now has taken the role of Vice President of Cedarland Development Group, his new company. The sponsors for the event are Cedarland Development Group and Waterfront Village, the property they own and manage here at the waterfront. “We have over 2000 tenants that we hope will attend the event and thousands of residents/neighbors nearby.”
“We feel like this is an exciting time for Buffalo’s waterfront and we want to use our close proximity to Canalside to provide a fun event for everyone” Kevin says. With the addition of several top musical acts scheduled to perform, the goal is to grow the event, and introduce a wider audience to this hidden part of downtown. “This event is open to the public and we hope to bring more people to this area of Buffalo’s inner harbor. We are located minutes away from Canalside right behind Erie Basin Marina in our courtyard”
It is great to see more attention this beautiful area of our city.
Long term, Cedarland Development Group has room to grow and blossom in a strategic part of downtown and the waterfront. “As we develop plans and ideas for this part of the waterfront we want to keep in mind the great people that live around here,” Kevin says.
