Summer Concerts at Artpark
It is hard to imagine summertime without getting out and enjoying at least one outdoor concert. Lucky for us, Buffalo Niagara can count on Artpark in Lewiston to deliver an epic outdoor concert schedule. Just wait until you hear who is coming in Summer 2019!
There’s no better place to see a sunset than at Artpark!
If you are not already familiar with Artpark (formally known as Earl W. Brydges Artpark State Park) it overlooks the Niagara Gorge and has been empowering the local community since 1974. Here visitors enjoy your typical state park recreational activities such as fishing, hiking and picnicking. But what really makes Artpark unique is its rich legacy of progressive art and cultural influence. The park features outdoor art installations, festivals, family activities, community engagement programs, drama and art therapy, an interactive percussion garden for all ages…and some of the best concerts in the area.
The Summer Concert Series
There is a huge lineup of concerts and theatrical performances this year – so many, in fact, that you will likely find something for everyone. If you are into psychedelic rock, The Flaming Lips will be ready to entertain you. Are you a 90’s kid? Then get excited, because Sugar Ray, Better Than Ezra, Third Eye Blind and Jimmy Eat World are coming. For comedy gold, don’t miss Weird Al singing his famous parodies of popular mainstream songs. Are you interested in taking your kids to a show? The Nickelodeon role model JoJo Siwa is scheduled to be rocking the Mainstage mid-season. Kids will also enjoy Plasticiens Volants, a French theatre group which features puppets, illuminations, and massive inflatables which the audience is encouraged to touch and interact with.
Third Eye Blind and Jimmy Eat world with special guest Ra Ra Riot will be rocking out at Artpark in July 3rd
Sarah McLachlan will bring her smooth and haunting melodies to the scene while accompanied by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra – a show you certainly will not want to miss. The tribute band LIVE ON MARS will be honoring the legend David Bowie with extraordinary lights, art visuals and eye-catching animation. Earth, Wind and Fire will deliver their notoriously unique sound, which is sure to bring back memories while you create some new ones! And then of course there’s DakhaBrakha, George Clinton with Parliament Funkadelic and Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf, YES, …the list goes on and on.
Get Your Tickets to a Summer Show
Needless to say, Artpark will be featuring some of the most famous musicians and performers of all time this season.

When those warm summer nights roll around and your friends are ready to party, you will thank yourselves for planning ahead! Get ready to dance to your favorite songs with the people you love. Maybe throw in an ice-cold drink and your favorite lawn chair, too. Get ready, Buffalo Niagara – it is going to be an awesome summer!
