Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced first-ever Feb Fest 2022 @ The Broadway Market was a great success as part of the City of Buffalo’s Black History Month celebration.

“I thank the vendors and shoppers, and our partners, Buy Black Buffalo, the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, and the Broadway Market for creating a wonderful event that showcased Black entrepreneurs and entertainers during its four week run,” Mayor Brown said. “We hope to bring it back again.”

Feb Fest, which offered more than a dozen diverse pop-up shops, live music and giveaways, was held every Saturday in February.

Blue and Yellow for Ukraine

The City Hall dome will continue to be lit in Blue and Yellow, the colors of the Ukranian flag, in a show of unity with the people of Ukraine as the conflict with Russia deepens. Many members of the Buffalo Landmark Illumination Team (BuffaloLIT) are also lighting buildings and landmarks to support the people of Ukraine.

The City will also continue flying the Ukrainian Flag in Niagara Square as a sign of solidarity with Ukraine and Buffalo’s Ukrainian community.
