First Night Buffalo would not be such a success without the help of all of our wonderful and dedicated volunteers. Last year approximately 75 men and women assisted with overseeing our many performance venues, answering questions, and ensuring that over 5,000 revelers rang in the New Year in a fun and safe manner.

We are seeking volunteers to serve as site volunteers and costumed character volunteers.
