Carousel Carnival VIP Event

September 10 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for a very special VIP party on Friday, September 10th as we celebrate Canalside’s newest attraction: the solar-powered Buffalo Heritage Carousel!

Friday’s party kicks off the festivities of our Carousel Carnival.  Round and round we go with something for everyone: On Friday a ticketed VIP party will toast this stunning new addition to our waterfront.

Enjoy fabulous hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Ride the carousel all evening! Bid on gift baskets and arrive early for carnival swag. Be amazed by the death-defying skills and talents of ELEKTRA FIRE. Tickets are $75 each

Take this opportunity to see the amazing restoration of this carousel and its beautiful animals, which was originally made in North Tonawanda in 1924, disappeared for decades and now stands tall with a brand new solar-powered roof, thanks to Tesla.

Come back on Saturday from 12 noon to 4:00 pm, and bring all the family for a spectacular FREE carnival with free carousel rides, carnival games and food, “make and take” activities for kids, and more.  To close the day, the Rotary Club of Buffalo will hold its annual Duck Derby at 4:15 PM. Adopt your ducks for just $5 each and watch them race to the finish in the Commercial Slip.

Proceeds of this event benefit Rotary Club of Buffalo’s significant charity program for our community
