Have some free time? Check out these summer weekly activities around Buffalo

Never be bored in Buffalo during the summer again! There’s limitless activities to do and with my help you will never find yourself bored at home again! 


Start your Mondays off by joining Slow Roll Buffalo! Join hundreds of bicyclist’s weekly as you explore neighborhoods all around the city. Each week there’s a different starting point so you see all around Buffalo! This is a great family and friend activity while also getting exercise. One of my favorite things to do on Mondays.

Start your Tuesdays off right by going to food truck Tuesday in Larkin Square. This is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. Between the live music and endless amounts of food and options how can you go wrong? Did I mention that there’s also a bar?!? Stop by one of my favorite food trucks – Macarollin- and try their caprese mac n cheese. It is amazing! 

Another great thing to do at night is to go to Shakespeare in the park. It runs Tuesday-Sunday at 7:30pm. The atmosphere is incredible and the actors are great! This show never fails to put a smile on my face. 

Start your Wednesday mornings bright and early with a free workout at 6am! This is sponsored by BlueCross BlueShield. It goes from strength training to cardiovascular endurance and every week has a different theme! The energy is great and it always feels great to start your day with a work out!


Later in the day on Wednesdays– starting around 5- head to Larkin Square for a live concert series. Larkin Square transforms from food trucks on Tuesdays to a rock and rollin live music concert on Wednesdays.

It’s not a Thursday without Canalside’s concert series! With only a price of $5 go enjoy some great musicians right on the water! With food trucks and beer on deck this is a great way to ensure some summer fun!


Is it the first Friday of the month? If so you’re in luck! Go enjoy a free gallery walk from 6-9pm in Allentown’s bohemian district. Before that make sure to get your free entry into the Albright Knox Gallery to go look at some beautiful and famous pieces of art. Second Friday of the month? You get free entry into Burchfield Penney Art Center.

Second Friday of the month? You get free entry into Burchfield Penney Art Center.

Third Friday of the month? Free entry into Buffalo History Museum.

Last Friday of the month? Go check out Buffalo Arts Studio for free entry!


On Saturday’s one of my favorite things to do is to check out the Framer’s Market to support local farmers. Did you know by taking a small step as simple as this we’re also saving our environment? Make sure to stop by the Elmwood/ Bidwell Farmer’s Market from 8am to 1pm. It doesn’t get fresher than this!

Calling all jazz fans- Sunday’s are your lucky day! Enjoy jazz at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Starting July 8th going to August 5th. Overlook Hoyt lake on a warm Sunday while enjoying some jazz.


Hopefully with some of these tips you’ll find yourself with more things to do during your summer in Buffalo. Make sure to check out Buffalo’s weekly calendar for special events.
