Please join the Hertel Business Association as we introduce the first annual Hertel Summer Series! A monthly event from May to September to discover a fun new way to eat, shop & play.

A monthly themed night to ignite the excitement for our businesses + community with summer evenings of music, shopping, themed activities, dining and exploring what Hertel Avenue has to offer.

The themes allow us to highlight many different types of businesses and offerings who call the Hertel Business District home. We encourage businesses to participate in all themes by staying open late and offering promotions or activities to keep the Ave lively. Musicians will be playing live sets along the way from Delaware to Starin each month. A map will be provided of the unique festivities, band locations and participating businesses prior to each month's event.

Hertel Summer Series is our fun new way to discover or rediscover the many new faces to Hertel, as well as honor our neighborhood staples that have been pivotal in the revitalization of our incredible North Buffalo community. Come out and have some fun with us!

Hertel Summer Series Themes:

Don’t forget live music will be stationed along the avenue for each month’s event!
