Outdoor concert season is on the horizon and we couldn’t be more excited for it! 

If you’re an avid concert go-er, make sure to add the Outer Harbor music venue to your summer bucket list. 

The Seneca Casinos Outer Harbor concert series officially kicks off on Saturday, May 20 with Gaslight Anthem, followed by the BPO and The Strictly Hip on July 15, Jimmy Eat World & Manchester Orchestra on August 25, Alter Bridge on August 1, and Arkell’s on August 12 with more to be announced! 

Beyond the diverse music line up, here’s 9 reasons to visit this venue this summer: 


1. Sunset Views

The Buffalo Waterfront is a beautiful place to be, especially during the summer. Waterfront views simply can’t be beat, especially when you’re watching a concert as the sun begins to set.

2. Free Car Parking 

You don’t have to worry about paying for parking here. There’s a concert lot located at 875 Fuhrmann Boulevard as well as street parking along the Boulevard. All parking spaces are first come, first serve and completely free. 

3. Bike Parking

If biking is your preferred mode of transportation, there’s designated bike parking areas too. Plus, you’ll find a Reddy Bikeshare station located directly next to the venue along Fuhrmann Boulevard.

4. Seating Options

Don’t worry about having to stand the entire time, you can bring your own chair or grab a spot in the Adirondack chair section. 

5. Beverages Options

Whether you’re a domestic beer drinker, a craft beer enthusiast, a wine lover, or fan of hard seltzers, there’s beverage options here for you. 

6. Food Options

If you’re a fan of food trucks, you’re in luck! Each concert will have 6+ different food trucks offering a variety of options.

Traffic can get tricky at concerts. That’s why this venue is making a proactive effort to maximize efficiency to and from the show by establishing a controlled traffic route that’s designated by local law enforcement, parking staff, and security.
