New venue for Drums Along the Waterfront


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)Drums Along the Waterfront will return to Western New York this summer, only this time the musical magic will fill the air in the Northtowns instead of the Southtowns.

“Due to the major renovation project taking place at Ralph Wilson Stadium, we’ll be moving back to the University at Buffalo where we held successful competitions in both 2003 and 2007,” said event organizer Jack Gaylord Jr. “We need the right setting and stage for the greatest corps in the world and the many thousands of fans who will be cheering them on, and the University at Buffalo can accommodate all of our needs.”

The popular event will take over U.B. Stadium in Amherst on Sunday, August 3rd at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at the UB Stadium box office, at or by calling Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
