Grain Elevator Illumination- Premiere
WHEN: Wednesday, November 4: 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Be the first to see one of Buffalo’s historic grain elevators in a spectacular new light!
Join us from 5:00-9:00 pm on Wednesday November 4 to celebrate as we “flip the switch”- turning the Connecting Terminal Grain Elevator into a canvas for a modern-day work of art!
The celebration will feature (times are approximate):
- 5:00 pm: live jazz music from Buffalo’s own Gruvology
- 6:00 pm: A brief performance from David Butler’s “Grain Dances, Steel Floats”- which tells the story of Buffalo’s history as the world’s largest grain port
- 6:30 pm: Illumination
- 6:30-9:00 pm: Live music while spectators immerse themselves in the light display: featuring 4 sequences that last approximately 20 minutes each (the light display will remain lit until 11:00 pm)
- Food trucks
- Beverages: including beer, wine, and our signature “Illuminated Prosecco”
- The Liberty Hound will also be open for anyone who would like to take in the Illumination from their patio!
