The Holidays in Buffalo

As the pages are turning from fall to winter in the Queen City things are only getting more exciting. Events are popping up left and right and many go unnoticed because us Buffalonians are just unsure as to where to find them.

Being a small, local business ourselves, we at Red Door are all for supporting local businesses and events and love to see the Western New York community come together for the holiday season. Below we have listed some of our favorite places to find out about local events; and we have even done some of the work for you by listing some events that caught our eye.
