Nikola Tesla’s life goal was to get to Niagara Falls so he could install AC-powered turbines to capture and distribute power
worldwide. He reached the pinnacle of his career in WNY and this festival tells his story through education and entertainment.
The festival begins on Friday with an appearance by Tesla himself, accompanied by Slavic music, hors oeuvres and a Lakeward
Spirits beverage tasting. Tesla-inspired art/light/electricity installations, video projections, music and DJ dance party run from
8pm-midnight. Take a self-guided tour of Nikola Tesla historic sites with a FREE tour of the Buffalo History Museum’s Pan-
American exhibit on Saturday as part of Museum Day Live, organized by the Smithsonian. Friday night activities 6pm-12am
