Canalside Buffalo

Where Buffalo is Going.

Canalside is both at the heart of Buffalo’s downtown waterfront and the site of Buffalo’s revitalization efforts. Canalside is managed by the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC), which oversees the site’s development projects and promotes hundreds of events that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to Buffalo’s waterfront every year.

In April 2013, Say What Communications was selected by Buffalo Place and ECHDC to market the hundreds of events occurring throughout the summer at Canalside.
