Queen City Social 2017

Hopefully the weather will cooperate later in the day, because today marks this year’s first Queen City Social. The live music event series is sort of a spinoff from the days of Thursday at The Square (TATS). Once that concert series moved to the waterfront, it left a gaping hole in the after work socializing opportunities that so many downtown workers had looked forward to over the years. Buffalo Place, the not-for-profit organization in place to help revitalize downtown Buffalo, was responsible for TATS.

Now, Buffalo Place is running Queen City Social, a free happy hour Wednesday concert series that includes local restaurants and Big Ditch Brewing Company beer (5:00 pm to 8:00 pm). The weekly socials take place at Fountain Plaza – a beautiful urban setting in the heart of newly refurbished Main Street.

Featuring local Buffalo bands:

  • July 12th: Kickstart Rumble 
  • July 19th: Alison Pipitone Band
  • July 26th: Colored Musicians Club 
  • August 2nd: Wendell Rivera Ensemble
  • August 9th: First Ward
  • August 16th: OC | DC and Joseph Mahfoud & The Syndicate
  • August 23rd: Will Holton 

The Queen City Social is sponsored by M&T Bank, Buffalo Business First, Try-It Distributing, Labatt Blue, Big Ditch Brewing Company, Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation and Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP. Logo and Poster Design by Crowley Webb.
