Overview

Yuri’s Night is a global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space. Yuri’s Night parties and events are held around the world every April in commemoration of April 12, 1961, the day of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight, and April 12, 1981, the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle.

This year, Yuri’s Night Buffalo will once again be held at the Lafayette Hotel in downtown Buffalo, NY.  The event is on Saturday, April 13, from 7 pm to 12 am.

Tickets are $20 in the SBI ticket office in the Student Union (UB North) or available at subboard.com/tickets. Tickets will also be available at the door for $25. Admission includes a free buffet dinner provided by Pearl Street (chicken, beef, pasta, etc).

A keynote will be delivered by Paul Graham.

Free transportation to and from the hotel and UB North Campus will be provided.  Please see the “Transportation” link at the top of the page to sign up.
