2017 HOST SOCIAL

The Western New York Host Committee looks forward to bringing you closer to the legendary force of nature at America’s oldest State Park.  Join us on Goat Island at the Niagara Falls State Park located in Niagara Falls NY, right next to the breath taking views of the American and Horseshoe falls.  This event will be held on Wednesday June 7, 2017 just a short walk from Terrapin point overlooking the magnificent Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls.

Along the walk, stop and enjoy music played by local musician Shawn Duchscherer.  From the great vantage points at Terrapin Point all those in attendance will witness the churning waters at the base of these great falls and witness jaw-dropping views from any vantage point along the Niagara River.

Arrive early and take the time to ride the Maid of the Mist, tour the Cave of the Winds, or simply explore.  The social event will provide local brews and wines for all to enjoy.  To top off the Western New York experience, attendees will taste some of the local flare compliments of Top of the Falls Catering.  You may want to start with tasting some local cheeses, including Buffalo wing cheddar.  Try a Niagara House Salad drizzled with NY Concord Grapeseed Vinaigrette.

Ever wonder what a true Western NY Beef of Weck tastes like?  How about NY Style Cheesecake topped with Loganberry Sauce?  Let’s not forget the sponge candy!  You will be entertained by The Strictly Hip, a Buffalo based band well-known for recreating the music of Canada's most popular rock band, The Tragically Hip. Finally, enjoy a performance from a local Native American dance group, as they teach us all some of the history to the area.
