Thanks to all the recent hard work of volunteers and donors, as well as donations and grants, the Central Terminal is once again a thriving hub of activity on Buffalo’s East Side.

And while we unfortunately cannot host weddings or wedding photo sessions at this time, we are welcome to new event ideas and concepts from the community. Please submit any event ideas to
