Buffalo Place will produce the free outdoor summer series, Thursday & Main, weekly from June 9th through July 28th in Downtown Buffalo at Fountain Plaza. Thursday & Main is presented by M&T Bank. The series continues to pay homage to the venerable Buffalo Place-produced summer tradition, Thursday at the Square. 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.
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, The Buffalo News, National Grid, Lawley, Uber, Katz Americas, and Hyatt Regency Buffalo.
To kick off the 2022 season presented by M&T Bank, Buffalo Place is pleased to welcome Ron Hawkins of Canadian alt-rock superstar band, Lowest of the Low. Hawkins holds a special place in Thursday at the Square history, performing with Lowest of the Low several times, including the summers of 1993 and 2005. In 2011, Hawkins and crew inaugurated the official move of Thursday at the Square from Lafayette Square to the Buffalo waterfront. Hawkins most recently performed during the 2019 Thursday & Main season at Fountain Plaza.
