Peace, Love, & Grant Street is taking place today – Thursday, December 1 from 4pm-8pm. The event features many of the shops, restaurants, and services that can be found along Grant Street.
Each year, Grant Street continues to shine in ways that we have not seen previously. Whether it’s a new ethnic market or a new building rising into the air, there is a sense that this street is finally hitting some significant strides. One of the best way to celebrate the incremental victories is to partake in the festive holiday events that are planned throughout the season (starting today).
Grant Street will be hopping with pop-up marketplace, featuring food trucks (in front of Chi-Chi’s Hardware 375 Grant Street), holiday arts and crafts, and an appearance by Santa’s elves.
What to look for:
Grant & Potomac (outside) Live rock band, petting zoo (sponsored by West Side Business & Tax Payers), roasting chestnuts on an open fire, and face painting
CAC (Buffalo State Community Academic Center) 214 Grant Street – The CAC is celebrating its fifth anniversary by making service projects to be donated to Buffalo’s newcomer refugee families. Stop in for their open house and learn more about their current work and accomplishments.
