Note: The Hampton Inn Buffalo South is the closest hotel to the event. Room rates are around $140/night and we are unable to offer an event rate this year. I spoke to the hotel today and they are almost full for that weekend. (2 wedding parties and a soccer team are also booked there). Please reserve your room early or try one of the alternate hotels on the list to ensure you have a place to crash.
