Thursday & Main is a free happy hour series featuring all things local, including live music, restaurants, and Big Ditch Brewing Company and Labatt beer. Thursday & Main takes place at Fountain Plaza from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday & Main is presented by M&T Bank.
The event continues the mission of Thursday at the Square: creating awareness and spin-off business for Downtown restaurants, bars, and retailers.
Thirty two years ago, in 1987, Fountain Plaza hosted the first Thursday at the Park season, produced and managed by Buffalo Place. One year later in 1988, crowds for the happy hour became too large for the space. The series was shifted to Lafayette Square and Thursday at the Square was born. Fountain Plaza provides the perfect setting for this summer’s Thursday & Main series.
