Family Fun Days at Canalside!

It’s been a gorgeous summer at Canalside! We’ve spent the summer celebrating and learning about the new exhibits in the new museum, focusing on a different educational zone each week with crafts, games and activities. Join us the last few Fridays this summer for some outdoor fun in the sun. We’re showcasing our Lighting Buffalo’s Imagination play zone where we’ll explore new ways to ignite imagination through play. Check our calendar for dates and times. Thank you Wegmans for sponsoring a full summer of this family favorite event!



Coloring Contest Winners!

Thank you for all your submissions!!

Thank you to our artists in residence who took a chance and made an entry into our Autos, Boats & Trucks drawing contest with a prize of a birthday party for 12 children (value $150). A collaborative contest celebrating two major events at Canalside, submissions had to feature one of their favorite vehicles from either the Canalside Auto & Boat Show held by the Niagara Frontier Automobile Dealers Association, Inc. or the Touch A Truck event held by Explore & More in which The Buffalo News hosted, sponsored and helped facilitate our contest. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Touch A Truck! A Honkin’ Success

Thank you to the thousands of people who showed up to support Explore & More at our 10th annual Touch A Truck! Even on a hot summer day that neared 90, we had a steady line of traffic of super excited kids eager to get in the driver’s seat and give their imagination a spin (and a honk)! Thank you to our Presenting Sponsors Northwest Bank, NFTA and The Buffalo News who also graciously hosted our event for another year.
