About “The Walk”
The Buffalo Cultural Walk of Fame was created by Charles Griffasi Sr to honor Western New Yorkers who have enriched the universe with their artistic contributions in Literary, Visual, and Performing Arts. To maintain the legacy of our vast heritage, their names are engraved in granite plaques and permanently recessed into the sidewalk at Elmwood Avenue and Bidwell Parkway. This location is the gateway to our cultural corridor. This encompasses the Albright Knox, the Burchfield Penny Center, and the Historical Society.
Who We Are – Our Mission
The Buffalo Cultural Walk of Fame was started by Cultural Concert International (A division of International All-Star Sports Council Inc) a non-profit, volunteer driven organization. We have chosen as our mission to engage Western New Yorkers in celebrating those who have excelled in music, film, television, as well as the literary, visual, performing arts, architecture and innovation.
We are in the business of celebrating Buffalo & Western New York excellence and inspiring the next generation of emerging local talent. We would absolutely LOVE to hear from you! CLICK HERE TO CONTACT US
