Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fontana Boathouse
Spend a summer evening “Wright on the Water” with Explore Buffalo and enjoy the sunset over the Niagara River and Lake Erie at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fontana Boathouse! This fundraising event supports Explore Buffalo’s educational mission. Enjoy food catered by Buffalo classic Charlie the Butcher while The Autonomous Vehicles perform live music. A cash bar with wine from Arrowhead Spring Vineyards and beer from Resurgence Brewing Company will be available.

The Buffalo Maritime Center will provide 15-minute cruises aboard their electric launch, the Electra, throughout the evening. The Autonomous Vehicles—accordion, bass, percussion— play a mix of instrumental jazz, blues, funk, and world music, including many originals. No one’s in control – dancing encouraged!
