NEW LOCATION New Lakeside Buffalo Event Center • Outer Harbor

Benvenuti and Welcome Family and Friends, To the Galbani Cheese Italian Heritage Festival of Buffalo New York. 

We want you to be a part of the excitement during our second year at this wonderful family friendly venue on Buffalo’s beautiful historic Outer Harbor. 

This year we have so many new and exciting features that we know you will enjoy. Our newly designed layout includes vendor booths that are positioned around the perimeter, creating a center “Piazza” with fountains and seating. All parking will now be close to the festival grounds. A new highlight will be an awe inspiring, world class Fireworks Display with an Italian ending like never seen before! 

We invite you to take in the sights, sounds, aromas and delicacies of Italy. All of your favorite Italian and Italian-American foods and entertainment is waiting right here for you. Come on down and “stomp the grapes”, old world style; find out about your roots with our genealogists, create Italian themed crafts in our Centro Bambini, learn fabulous Italian recipes in our Galbani Village and so much more.

Talk about entertainment! Our national entertainment this year is spectacular, as we welcome back America’s Got Talent’s star Sal Valentinetti and orchestra; Frankie Valli cover band Lights Out, Franco Corso and many other amazingly talented acts.
The Italian Heritage Festival is Buffalo! It’s a summertime tradition for all to enjoy, so bring the family. Special thanks to all of our dedicated sponsors, vendors and of course you, our guests. You are family, so join us as together we will make this year’s festival our best ever! 

Viva L’Italia!!!
