In keeping with our Club’s goals, CARES members will be volunteering at the City of Night Event this Saturday, August 17th. Stop by the greeters/merchandise tables and say hi, we will be there from 8-Midnight.
The Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo (ELAB) present the 2nd annual CITY OF NIGHT. A celebration of all the things that make Buffalo great. FREE ADMISSION, ALL ARE WELCOME-SILO CITY, BUFFALO off of Ohio Street. The event runs from 4pm-2am.
The following is the description of the event from the City of Night Website. “CITY of NIGHT is an annual, multi-disciplinary event, this year held on August 17th. Key themes include art, history, culture and sustainability. The “Silo City” complex of grain elevators plays host on the Buffalo River, which sets the historical tone and informs the art installations, musical performances, fine art fair, and site tours. City of Night represents Buffalo’s incredibly diverse cultural scene with a wide variety of music, dance, sound installation, fashion, and a community art project for all to engage in. We strive to become an ever more eco-conscious event, with local environmental non-profits represented, we encourage recycling and composting, and solar-powered energy! Food truck delights, beverages and CITY of NIGHT-themed merchandise will be available for purchase. The event is free to attend and open to people of all ages and backgrounds. Proceeds benefit the coordinating organization, the Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo (ELAB), a chapter of Americans for the Arts”
