“We’re thrilled to bring Cobblestone Live back to downtown Buffalo for the third year in a row,” says Co-Founder Josh Holtzman. “This year’s goal is to expand our overall footprint, offer an even more diverse selection of artists and increase our non-music programming. We’re confident that our community will support this wonderful festival as it’s built for Buffalo!”
Hailed by The Buffalo News as the “Best Fest” in Buffalo in 2018 (in a tie with Music is Art), Cobblestone Live will aim to make fans and critics alike look forward to this festival for years to come. There will be over fifteen unique vendors, a mobile photo station, massage tent, caricature artists, dunk tank, Crown beauty station and more. Building on last year’s non-musical programming, this year’s highlights will include: an inaugural spaghetti parm eating competition presented by Chef’s Restaurant, a live graffiti installation on an 18-wheeler trailer, a gong-bath sound experience, live alpacas and exotic animals, with more live art installations and pop-up experiences to be announced.
Ticket prices for this year’s festival are as follows: $20 ADV single day, $25 DOS single day, $35 ADV weekend, $45 DOS weekend, and $100 VIP. VIP tickets include exclusive VIP-only tented areas, preferred viewing areas of outdoor stages, two free drinks per day, free taco happy hours provided by Breezy Burrito Co., a limited edition Cobblestone Live poster, commemorative laminate, and more to be announced.
A portion of this year’s proceeds will once again go to the Child Advocacy Center (CAC), a service in Erie County which brings together local law enforcement agencies, mental health services, child protection, medical services, and the District Attorney’s office to investigate, treat and support victims of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse. The Child Advocacy Center ensures that these young victims and their caregivers receive immediate, effective and sensitive support. Nationally, Child Advocacy Centers and their multidisciplinary teams have improved conviction rates for perpetrators of child abuse by up to 94%.
