Hang on – is September the new July?

Truly, the number of large scale events and festivals happening this month is absolutely thrilling if you ask us. From cultural events to huge music festivals and food and drink extravaganzas, a Half Way to St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and much more, September events will not disappoint. Plan to treat this month like a summer extension – one we all want, need, and hardcore deserve after the past year and a half of limited socialization.

Without further ado, let’s get into Step Out Buffalo’s curated list of exciting events happening this September in WNY, as chosen by our editors.

Disclaimer: 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.
