Thursdays are back Downtown! 

Whether you experienced it as Thursday in the Park, Thursday at the Square, or Thursday & Main, live music on Thursday nights in Downtown Buffalo has been a summertime tradition in Buffalo for years. 

It started with Thursday at the Square back in 1987 and the tradition is continuing on with Thursday & Main. 

Buffalo Place is bringing live music to Fountain Plaza on Thursdays starting on June 9 all the way through July 28. This weekly outdoor music series is free and open to the public.

The goal of Thursday & Main is bigger than bringing people together to enjoy live music and happy hour drinks. It’s about encouraging people to support local businesses by giving them an extra reason to stay Downtown after work or travel Downtown to meet for happy hour. 

Regardless of what type of music you like to listen to, this series is known for offering music for every type of live music lover. Plus, this year’s lineup is featuring more high profile talent than ever before. 

Mark your calendar for June 9 at 5 p.m. Ron Hawkins, of Lowest of the Low, is kicking off the 2022 series with special guests Geno McManus & Zak Ward.
