Queen City Frag Fest is set to take place this weekend, Sunday April 15th at Babeville in Buffalo, New York. This marks the 4th anniversary of this special one-day event in the “Queen City” located nearby Niagara Falls.
Being several days away, it’s definitely not too late to make some weekend plans to head to Buffalo for this epic one day reef show! With over 15 different vendors from all over the East Coast, you’re bound to find some amazing deals on all different types of sweet coral and potentially win some killer reef gear from the raffle.
Western New York has been a busy hub for saltwater aquarists for many years and is continually growing. Presented by Aquarium Professionals, the Queen City Frag Fest was created as a once-a-year event for hobbyists from New York and beyond to come and interact with other hobbyists and vendors. The event takes place at Babeville, a 19th Century church-turned state of the art entertainment venue that is architecturally stunning and super unique for a reef show. Participating vendors range from small Mom & Pop Fish Stores to nationally-known retailers. In addition, the event hosts food trucks, children’s activities and a super sweet Chinese Auction with a whole lot of amazing swag including EcoTech Marine Radions and Innovative Marine tank setups!
