Events and Exhibitions

There’s always something amazing to see at the CFA. We host some of the world’s biggest musical, theatrical and comedy acts. But some of our most amazing performances are put on by the students and faculty right here at UB. Plays, musicals, exhibitions, dance performances and concerts of every variety—they’re all open to the UB student body and the Buffalo community. No matter what you’re into, we promise, there’s something on our calendar that’s perfect for you.
