Beau Fleuve’s ‘Day of Play’ at Explore & More

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Explore & More – The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum and Beau Fleuve Music & Arts have once again partnered to offer another highly anticipated and recording-breaking “Day of Play” for youth in the community on Sunday, July 14, 2024 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The goal of the partnership is to lift the financial paywall that may hinder prospective families from experiencing all that Explore & More has to offer. As part of the “Day of Play,” guests will enjoy Pay What You Wish! admission of $8, $10, or the regular $13 for adults and children ages 1 & up.

Over 900 children and adults visited Explore & More during last year’s “Day of Play,” with more than half attending for the very first time.

Beau Fleuve is taking a step further in 2024. Thanks to support from Buffalo Common Council Majority Leader Leah Halton-Pope, our presenting sponsor, 400 FREE admission tickets to be used July 14 will be available at select community centers on the East Side and West Side of the City of Buffalo. Each guest who redeems a free admission ticket will also receive a $5 food voucher to use that day at the Low Bridge Café, which is located on the museum’s first floor. Tickets will be distributed starting Saturday, June 1.

The NFTA is also providing 100 Day Passes for transportation to help make it easier for families to visit the museum on July 14. These passes will be distributed through the select community centers.

In addition to all the immersive exhibits, creative arts, and music, the “Day of Play” will also welcome five youth entrepreneurs through Buffalo Kid Entrepreneurs.

Beau Fleuve’s “Day of Play” is thankful for additional support from Fillmore Councilmember Mitch Nowakowski.
