The Wedding of the Waters, presented by the Friends of the Buffalo Story

For five Monday nights in August, artists, historians and waterfront enthusiasts will gather at The Ruins at Canalside to celebrate the Erie Canal Terminus and everything that the canal means to Buffalo. The Erie Canal – Clinton’s Big Ditch – brought great prosperity to Buffalo – the canal opened up this city to a new world of commerce and trade.

Based in extensive historical research, but developed by the full team, the end result is a piece of work that is engaging, captivating, and intentionally “one of a kind.”

Now the Friends of the Buffalo Story will be paying tribute to the completion of the canal, and the legacy that it left behind. Through theatre, dance, and music, the stories will be retold, with contemporary twists. 

It is our hope that it will inspire our audiences to want to learn more about the Erie Canal and “The Buffalo Story.”

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
