Lafayette Square is a park in downtown Buffalo, offering strolling, picnic lunches, and outdoor concerts. It was a centerpiece of the original urban plan for the city of Buffalo, constructed by Joseph Ellicott in 1804. Visitors to the one-block square have a prime view of major building such as City Hall, the Buffalo Public Library, and the Erie County Courthouse. The longstanding tradition Thursday at the Square started a precedent for hosting musical performances at Lafayette Square.
