So, we get emails all the time from vendors, shoppers, and just about everyone else, asking about our upcoming festivals! We love the excitement and enthusiasm and appreciate the support!

We thought it might be a good idea to put everything in one story – so here we go.


The Totally Buffalo Festival – May 26th from 12-8 p.m.  Buffalo Riverworks, 359 Ganson Street, Buffalo 

This is our second annual Totally Buffalo Festival and we are super excited about it. We had more than 5,000 folks come out to shop and celebrate everything about Buffalo and WNY last May. This year, we aren’t changing much. We will still have live music (MORE ON THAT HERE), dozens of local vendors (a complete list coming soon), and great food – from Buffalo Riverworks, Shish Kabob Heaven, Eckl’s Roast Beef, Imperial Pizza, and Babcia’s Pierogi! We will have Buffalo beer, wine and soda, too. This is a family-friendly event with appearances by Billy Buffalo, Buster Bison and Sabretooth! We will also have Buffalo’s Best Batman and a few Disney Princesses walking around, taking pictures with the kids. This is a great venue – it’s totally covered, but open air as well – so it doesn’t matter much what kind of mood Mother Nature is in!  Part of the proceeds from each ticket sold will go to Kaely’s Kindness to help young girls battling cancer. You can find out more on that HERE. 

We are not taking any more vendors for this show – we are totally full!

Tickets are $5. (kids 5 and under are free)  Parking is free in the Riverworks lots – but once they fill up, the overflow lots do charge $5.

Buy tickets HERE.

The Totally Southtowns Festival – September 29th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at The Healthy Zone Rink, 41 Riley Street, East Aurora.

This is our first annual Southtowns Festival and a great way to celebrate our beautiful Southtowns! If you haven’t been to the Healthy Zone Rink, it’s a great venue! Obviously there will not be ice for our festival, but the covered, open air facility will be perfect – regardless of the weather conditions!  This is all about celebrating family, friends and community. We will have some of the Southtowns favorite restaurant with their specialities and artisans selling their amazing merchandise. There will also be a huge kid’s zone for the little ones to enjoy every last bit of summer fun! There will be live music and much more! Tickets are $5 (5 and under are free) and there is plenty of free parking.  We will be raising money to help the Healthy Zone build their new locker rooms for all to enjoy! (More on that soon!)

We are still registering vendors, so if you are interested, more information HERE.

Totally Buffalo 716MAS – December 1st and 2nd at Buffalo Riverworks! 

Finally, we have the dates for our 2nd annual 716MAS event at Buffalo Riverworks so save the dates! December 1st and 2nd, we will have more than 100 local vendors selling their amazing Buffalo-inspired merchandise to help you start and finish your Christmas shopping! Last year, thousands of folks came by to shop, enjoy live music and have fun with the entire family! We will be accepting vendor registrations beginning June 1st so stay tuned to 

And more details to come very soon!


About Me



Welcome to Totally Buffalo! A local lifestyle website.

My name is Mary Friona-Celani and I am the creator of this site! I’m a wife, a mom, a grandma, a Buffalo booster, an entrepreneur and a small business owner. I’m so glad you stopped by.  After 20 years in the buffalo media, I went out on my own to tell stories about the people, places, events and all-around fabulousness of this wonderful place we call home. Buffalo is different and so is this site. We are here to share stories, encourage kindness, and help make this a better place to live.

We’ll help those in need when we can through our charity arm, Totally Buffalo Cares.

We help local small businesses, artisans and vendors though our events and our Totally Buffalo Stores.

We’ll do all of this with a little help from friends in our community.

    I would love to be a vendor at both of your events later this year – Riverworks at the Holiday Season, and Orchard Park in the fall.
    I cant find the are to sign up for Riverworks though.
    Thank you for your help in this matter.
    Have a great Day!
