FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

2021 events include family fun and favorite activities

Buffalo, NY – The Conservancy today announced its exciting 2021 season of summer park events and activities featuring walking tours, movie nights, pop up concerts, and much more! There is something for everyone across the Olmsted Park System.

“As the park season is upon us, our dedicated staff have been hard at work to prepare for and support a fun filled calendar of events,” said Stephanie Crockatt, Executive Director of Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. “While the Olmsted parks are a popular choice for numerous events, races, programs, youth sports, etc., the activities listed here are directly supported by the Conservancy with our amazing community partners and corporate sponsors.  We are very thankful for the continued support we receive and are proud to announce activities in giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy beautiful Olmsted landscapes all season long.”

With a 40% increase in general park use since the health crisis began, the Conservancy remains determined to provide a high level of service to the community for fun, safe, and accessible events. All Conservancy events will follow current COVID-19 guidelines.

The Conservancy would like to give a special thanks to all 2021 summer program sponsors (in alphabetical order); Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of WNY, M&T Bank, MolinaCares Foundation and Wegmans.
