No one is more thrilled that big events are finally back than us. And we’re not just talking backyard BBQs and 10 people classes either. We love a bike ride down the street to the ice cream shop as much as the next Buffalonian, but in 2021, we’re please to announced that it no longer has to be the biggest “event” of the season!

This summer you can finally look forward to some large-scale festivals and events returning. The elation is real. And no, elation is not an exaggeration in case you were wondering.

Here’s a list of major events that plan to happen during Summer 2021, one way or another, pretty similarly to pre-Covid times. Get excited, Buffalo!
