Buffalo Porchfest

[FUN] Finally, that time of the year has come around when the warm weather transforms the Elmwood Village and the West Side from a frozen tundra into a bright arena of joggers, shoppers, college students, and dogs walking their owners.  This weekend, thanks to the Elmwood Village Association, life in the neighborhood is about to move to the next level of cultural vibrancy as Buffalo Porchfest makes its annual return. This Saturday, May 9 between 1pm and 6pm, dozens of Elmwood and Richmond Avenue residences will play host to over 50 local music outfits that will be delivering live sets from—you guessed it—their porches. The dispersed, neighborhood-wide event is a rare opportunity to experience what the city’s music scene has to offer within the unique setting of local residences. As the Elmwood Village Association professes on their website: ”We loved seeing local musicians and bands showcased on beautiful and historic Buffalo porches and lawns and can’t wait to do it again.” This is definitely a must-attend for all those who seek to revel in good music, good company, and good weather. So this Saturday, grab your sunscreen and create your own itinerary. A full listing of participating addresses, times, and lineups times, locations, and bands can be found below or at
