Usually when we think of August, we think of festivals galore, events everywhere, even the Erie County Fair.

It’s true, with no large scale events happening, this August won’t be anything like years past. But 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 small events that are actually happening this August.


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. Step Out Buffalo fully supports wearing a mask, practicing social distancing  when possible, and just being an all around good neighbor!

Here is our curated list of can’t-miss events happening this August in WNY, as chosen by Step Out Buffalo’s editors.
