Shakespeare in Delaware Park has been a Buffalo summer tradition since 1976.  It is the country's second most successful outdoor Shakespeare festival in terms of audience, attracting an average of 50,000 patrons each summer.  The festival takes place in a historic park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, father of landscape architecture and the nation's foremost parkmaker.  Behind the Park's rose garden stands a grand Tudor-Style stage on a sweeping hill of green.  In this beautiful setting under the stars, Shakepeare's stories live on to explore the truths of the human heart; tragedy, jealousy, foolishness, passion, laughter, and love.  The mission of Shakespeare in Delaware Park is to promote and support the cultural and economic well-being of the Buffalo/ Niagara Region through dramatic arts performances and educational programming.
