Since 2015, the Queen City Roller Girls have called the Buffalo RiverWorks Event Center their home. Located along the waterfront on Ganson Street, RiverWorks is one of the Buffalo Brewery District’s newest offerings, providing their own growing mix of hospitality and entertainment.
Buffalo RiverWorks is an adaptive reuse of the former GLF grain mill operation and serves as a multi-purpose recreational and events center. The 60,000 square foot indoor event center features multiple bars and restaurants, a 5,000 person concert venue, a 1,500 person banquet facility, and space for trade shows, corporate events, and conventions. The 50,000 square foot covered outdoor ice rinks serve as a venue for ice hockey, roller hockey (in summer), box lacrosse, and curling leagues. All of this is located a mere half mile from Keybank Center and Canalside, along the Buffalo River.
While most leagues in our sport use spaces like roller rinks and basketball/hockey arenas, we’re lucky enough to have a purpose built roller derby facility in RiverWorks allowing us provide an ideal viewing experience for our fans. Our move to RiverWorks has also allowed us to move to the city, ensuring that QCRG will play within the Queen City itself and to actively participate in the overall revitalization occurring downtown.
