2018 Parties on The Portico

The highly anticipated Party on The Portico event series at the Buffalo History Museum is set to begin this Friday, June 15. The event showcases some of the most highly regarded music talents in the region, as they play on the museum’s stunning portico that overlooks Mirror Lake, Delaware Park, and the Japanese Gardens. Each year, hundreds of people attend this live music-driven happy hour that features free snacks, cash bar, 15-minute tours of the historic building and grounds, and after-hours access to exhibits. Now do you see why this has become such a popular music series over the years? 

Following is this year’s Friday music line-up:

  • June 15 – Verse
  • July 20 – Strictly Hip
  • August 17 – Steam Donkeys
  • September 21 – Buffalo Afrobeat Orchestra
