The Western New York region may have a reputation for long winters and record snowfall. Still, it’s also known for its robust gardening community – boasting one of the oldest Garden Walks and the largest gardening tourism entity in the United States. In the city alone, over 400 residents proudly display their landscape creations during the self-guided Buffalo Garden Walk, which celebrates its 30th year in 2024. Tens of thousands of visitors are drawn to the Buffalo-Niagara area each summer for numerous garden events, from the Northtowns to the Southtowns and in just about every neighborhood. 

Doors open at 9:30 am, and you must be seated by 10:15 am. We will be live on-air from 10:30 am – 11:30 am. Free parking is available in our gated lot. Attendees must be 15+ years of age. Buy your ticket here.
