Be a part of the renaissance that is reshaping and revitalizing Buffalo. Buffalo expatriates, come back from across the country and throughout the suburbs to attend this extraordinary event, designed to turn Expatriates into Repatriates!

Invite every Buffalo Expat you know to return for a visit on August 24-27 to experience Buffalo’s renaissance and discover dozens of good reasons to move back to Western New York.

Buffalo Old Home Days will be four days full of everything that makes Buffalo one of the best places in the U.S. to live, work and play.

I'm working with Marti Gorman and a team of New Buffalo All-Stars to make this event a success. The event will be a part of Revitalize Buffalo's continuing campaign to make this a better place to live, work, and play.

So far, we have established partnerships with the Buffalo Convention and Visitor's Bureau, BuffaloPlace, BuffaloNiagara Enterprise, BuffaloNiagara Partnership, BuffaloRising, Schneider Digital, Iambuffaloniagarajobs, Elmwood Avenue Festival of The Arts, Albright-Knox, Delaware Park Casino, the Buffalo Bills, and many, many more.
