95 Things That Aren’t Cancelled This Fall in Buffalo & WNY

Yes, a lot has been cancelled this year – from the Erie County Fair to Buffalo Wing Fest (legit ones anyway…) to every last 2020 Step Out Buffalo event (they were gonna be so good y’all). We’re sad about it, but if we’re looking on the bright side you probably didn’t want to go to half of those cancelled things anyway. Now thanks to Covid-19 you have plenty of time to experience some of the fall activities you might not have explored otherwise.

So we pulled together a list of things that haven’t been cancelled this fall. Let’s make the most this long list, shall we Buffalo?

Friendly reminder to please continue to follow proper social distancing guidelines, wear a mask when social distancing isn’t possible, and make sure to check in with any and all businesses before visiting to learn about their new hours, service adjustments, and up-to-date health and safety protocols.
