Buffalo Bloody Mary Festival


Mar 3, 2019
01:00 PM until 04:00 PM


The fourth annual Buffalo Bloody Mary Fest hosted by Step Out Buffalo featuring Tommyrotter Distillery is back...back again!

Ten local bars and restaurants will come together under one roof on Sunday March 3, 2019 for a friendly competition to see who makes “Buffalo’s Best Bloody Mary”, “Best Garnished Bloody Mary” and “Most Creative Bloody Mary” - and *YOU* are the taste-tester who decides the winners.

All Bloody Mary’s at the event will be made using award-winning vodka from Buffalo’s own Tommyrotter Distillery. In addition to tasting each bar’s unique Bloody Mary concoction, attendees are also invited to enjoy offerings from local vendors and Bloody Mary mix companies, a live DJ, onstage entertainment, a photo booth station, games, and food for purchase from RiverWorks as well as a cash bar with even more refreshments.


NEW THIS YEAR: There will be more vendors and Bloody Mary Mix Companies for you to sample and shop, plus onstage competitions and entertainment that *YOU* can get in on!

Each attendee will get a sheet of 10 tasting tickets to try Bloody Mary samples from each of the 10 different local bars. Attendees will then get to vote for which bars deserve the titles of "Buffalo's Best Bloody Mary", "Best Garnished Bloody Mary", and “Most Creative Bloody Mary” at the official voting booth.
