Yes, with few large scale events happening this April, things are still far from normal. However, in the name of finding out what *is* happening around town, stepping out, and supporting local businesses, we’ve pulled together a list of exciting smaller events that are actually happening this month.

At the time this guide was published, all of these events are scheduled to happen. However with things changing rapidly and cancellations possible, please be sure to check with each organization before going to any event for the most recent updates possible. We will do our best to keep this list updated with any new information and cancellations should they come up.

Friendly reminder to follow any and all safety protocol put in place by the establishment while attending any of the following events.

Here is our curated list of exciting events happening this April in WNY, as chosen by Step Out Buffalo’s editors.
