Larkin Square hosts inaugural Larkinville Summer Block Party

Seneca St. Closed for a Free Festival Featuring Vendor Market, Food Trucks and Live Music

This coming Saturday, there’s only one place to be in Buffalo, and that’s in Larkinville. From noon to 6pm, Seneca Street in-between Larkin Square and Hydraulic Hearth will be closed for a giant Block Party. The event will feature two outdoor bars, live music at 1:30pm from Witty Tarbox and The Tins, performances from The Bird’s Nest, and visits from Mapleview Alpacas, and puppies from Queen City Pitties. A number of other events and activities will also be underway, including:

  • Green Energy Alliance will also be on site with electric cars available for test rides
  • Hydraulic Hearth will open their beer garden for lunch service from the popular Wayno’s BBQ
  • Swan Street Diner will be open until 3pm with live music at noon by Andrew Reimers and Katie Clark

This is the first year that Larkinville is playing around with the concept of Block Parties. Along with all of the rest of their events and festivals that take place throughout the year, these Block Parties will act as a rallying cry for people to flock to Larkinville on two select Saturdays – June 1 and September 28.
