Theater, music, film and art are among the more than 500 events planned along Canalside and the Buffalo River

For many years, the most popular events of Buffalo’s hyperactive summer culture have been held in certain expected places:

It’s a given, for instance, that crowds will flock weekly to the grassy median at Elmwood Avenue and Bidwell Parkway for Tuesday concerts. Like clockwork, Main Street in Lewiston will come alive during the village’s art and jazz fests. Allentown swelled to bursting with visitors to the massive Allentown Art Festival earlier this month and will swell again during the offbeat Infringement Festival in late July and early August.
