Must Attend Events (Sept 1-15) | Embrace Autumn Traditions, Enjoy Final Open-Air Music and Art Festivals, and Delight in Seasonal Sensations

Happy Labor Day from Buffalo Rising.  We celebrate how hard Buffalonians work to make our city an incredible place to work and live.  With that in mind, September kicks off with Labor Day Weekend, and if you aren’t having friends and family over, go to the Niagara Falls Street Fair or see Odesza at Darien Lake.  The theater season is starting again, and getting tickets to The Life and Times of Marc Summers at the Alleyway might be a good idea before it sells out.  And after seeing The Amen Corner at the Shaw Festival, we can’t recommend it enough!
