“We’re grateful to be able to bring Cobblestone Live back to downtown Buffalo for the fourth year in a row,” says Co-Founder Josh Holtzman. “This year’s goal is to return to our roots and provide Buffalo with a block party like no other. As you can see from the lineup, we hit it hard with a 90s theme and we can’t wait to see how our amazing community responds.”
VIP tickets include exclusive VIP-only tented areas, preferred viewing areas of each outdoor stage, a premium bar with craft beverages, lounge area under VIP tent, complimentary meals, private bathroom access, a commemorative laminate, and more to be announced.
A portion of this year’s proceeds will once again go to the Child Advocacy Center (CAC), a service in Erie County which brings together local law enforcement agencies, mental health services, child protection, medical services, and the District Attorney’s office to investigate, treat and support victims of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse. The Child Advocacy Center ensures that these young victims and their caregivers receive immediate, effective and sensitive support. Nationally, Child Advocacy Centers and their multidisciplinary teams have improved conviction rates for perpetrators of child abuse by up to 94%.
