Buffalo Place will proudly produce the free outdoor summer series, Thursday & Main, weekly from July 8th through August 26th. The re-named series, previously branded as Queen City Social, continues to pay homage to the venerable Buffalo Place-produced summer tradition, Thursday at the Square. Thursday & Main is presented by M&T Bank.
Thursday, August 26th will feature Ten Cent Howl. Ten Cent Howl has been making waves in the Buffalo Americana scene for almost two decades. Their music is built on a strong foundation of solid, story-telling songs, professional musicianship, and incredible vocal harmonies. Special guest for the evening will be Adrianna Noone.
The free and open-to-the-public happy hour, presented on Thursday evenings in the heart of Downtown Buffalo at Fountain Plaza (Main at Chippewa Streets), continues the mission of Thursday at the Square: creating awareness and spin-off business for Downtown restaurants, bars, and retailers.
Thirty-two years ago, in 1987, Fountain Plaza hosted the first Thursday at the Park season, produced and managed by Buffalo Place. One year later in 1988, crowds for the happy hour became too large for the space. The series was shifted to Lafayette Square and Thursday at the Square was born. Fountain Plaza was recently renovated by the City of Buffalo as part of the Cars Sharing Main Street Project and is a beautiful public space in Downtown. It provides the perfect setting for this summer’s Thursday & Main series.
Thursday & Main is made possible with the generous support of our official sponsor family. The series is presented by M&T Bank and supported by Crowley Webb, Try-It Distributing, Big Ditch Brewing Company, and The Buffalo News.
