Our Favorite Fall Festivals in Buffalo, NY

National Buffalo Wing Festival

Celebrate Buffalo’s most famous food at the National Buffalo Wing Festival! Every year in early September, tens of thousands of visitors flock to Buffalo to “wing it!” Since its inception in 2000, this festival has served over four million (yes, that’s right: million) of wings to its many festival-goers. Aside from sampling some truly incredible food, you can participate in a wing eating contest, a sauce cook-off, and a trivia game. You can even try your hand at bobbing for wings! There’s also plenty of live music, vendors, restaurants, and shops to enjoy. So make sure to bring your appetite (and a few napkins) to enjoy the Buffalo Wing Festival!

Buffalo German Fest

While you’re in town for the National Buffalo Wing Festival, stop by Buffalo German Fest! It takes place around the same time every year (the first weekend of September) and celebrates the history of German heritage found in the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region. The festival is all about “Gemütlichkeit”, which simply means being in the right place at the right time with the right people. Isn’t that what a festival is all about? Inside the festival, you’ll find a wine bar serving (what else?) German wines, plenty of great restaurants and vendors serving authentic German goods, and awesome dance and musical performances by local groups.
