Every year we look back at the most notable things that happened in the Buffalo & WNY food and drink and entertainment industries. We look at the best new restaurants, the full list of places that opened and closed throughout the year, the most popular restaurants, and viral videos from Step Out Buffalo. It’s fun to see where Buffalonians stepped out to most in 2022 – what made you stop scrolling and start doing!

To compile this list we pulled together our content to find the most viewed event listings on this year to get the 10 most popular events of 2022 – in order. If you didn’t get the chance to attend this year, add them to your step out bucket list for 2023!
