Theatre District of WNY
Founded in 1979, Theatre District Association of Western New York, Inc. is a not-for-profit community association dedicated to the promotion of the health and well-being of Buffalo’s neighborhood known as the Theatre District.
It is our goal to foster public awareness and appreciation of the unique aspects of the Theatre District as an urban cultural neighborhood and to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas which may affect the welfare of the District and its members and to promote dialogue with other agencies or organizations which may impact our neighborhood.
TDA focuses attention on neighborhood cleanup and physical improvement, and encourages programs for safety and security.
TDA also participates in the development and production of public events which showcase the Theatre District and promote its economic development and growth. Join us each September for Curtain Up!
