City Of Night! Are You Going To The Party Of The Year?

Last year, Facebook and Twitter here in Western New York exploded with people talking about an event down by the grain silos in Downtown Buffalo. The event attracted artists, preservationists, and just about everyone else in Buffalo. In the end over 12,000 people attended what became the premier party of the year in Buffalo.

Friends of ours posted time and again on all the social media outlets to come down and see the artwork, sample the beer, hear the great local music, and just wander around the grain silos having fun.. It got to the point where my wife and I couldn’t help but wonder what we were missing. In the end, all the coaxing paid off, and we got our butts down there!

ELAB or Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo (ELAB), a chapter of Americans for the Arts, is a volunteer organization that supports the professional and artistic growth and education of multidisciplinary artists. ELAB members serve as creative placemakers for the region, through innovative public events and community art projects.

Founded in 2010 by a collective of working artists, we are a catalyst in the region. We work to unify diverse individual artists with movements such as historic preservation and sustainability. Over four years, our simple yet innovative programming and events have filled a void for the artists in our region, who in turn are improving the communities and neighborhoods in which they live.

This years City of Night will be this upcoming Saturday the 28th down by Ohio Street and Childs Street. The party will go from 4 PM till 1 AM and will feature some of Buffalo’s best artists, craft beer by Flying Bison, and just a great atmosphere that Buffalo is famous for. If you’ve never had a chance to see the grain silos, I suggest attending. It’s quite an event being able to walk through all the different silos and see all this amazing artwork, all while drinking a beer! The silos will also be lit up, as they were last year. There will be live bands on different stages and a DJ Booth.

I guess I am a great boss?

Seriously, if you missed this event last year, you should consider coming down and seeing what it’s all about.

Trust me it will be worth it!
