The Sportsmens Americana Music Foundation presents Silo City Alive 2

The Sportsmens Americana Music Foundation is presenting Silo City Alive 2 on July 1st, 2018 and you’re invited.  The event is set among the historical grain silos, inside and out, and includes 11 Bands, 2 dance groups, and many visual artists.  There will be four food trucks for your enjoyment.

Silo City Alive is a celebration of Buffalo’s cultural renaissance and its impressive industrial history. Set among the grain silos along Ohio Street, the festival brings together art, dance, and music for its second year on Sunday, July 1st from 2 to 8pm. The silos are impressive structures and function as amazing amplifiers for the acoustic Americana music inside. The concrete walls are transformed into a gallery for the work of local artists and dancers. Outside, the old canals are full of kayaks and floating tiki bars (there’s even a launch where you can park your kayak for the day on the grounds of Silo City) and the concrete towers serve as a backdrop for aerial dancers while a handful of Buffalo’s best original bands perform on the main stage.

This year’s bands include the Steam Donkeys, Folkfaces, First Ward, Leroy Townes Band, The Rust Belt Birds, Dee Adams, Uncle Ben’s Remedy, Mom Said No, CPX, Ten Cent Howl, along with the element of dance – Center Dance and Buffalo Aerial Dance. Returning for our second year is GoBike, Buffalo’s premier cycling organization, offering valet parking for your cycle. Some of the region’s best breweries will be offering locally brewed refreshments and a number of food trucks will be on hand offering everything from savory to sweet.  No matter how you get there, whether it’s on two wheels or four or with a paddle, it’s going to be a great afternoon of the best that Buffalo has to offer.

Admission is $10 at the gate and children under 12 get in free. Be sure to bring a chair!  GoBike will be there to valet your cycle, and there’s plenty of parking for cars. Live music, food trucks, and beer at the silos… what could better than that?
