BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Organizers for the Buffalo Auto Show announced the event will not take place in February as it normally does due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The organizers say the event is postponed and they are working on a potentially larger event in late spring 2021.

Officials say February will become "AUTO MONTH" with links provided on where consumers can browse the latest in "Wheels and Deals" and take advantage of the annual auto show savings.

“We are still firmly optimistic that we can present something very special in the late spring," said Paul Stasiak, President of Niagara Frontier Automobile Dealers Association. "Hopefully, the new vaccine will have a positive impact, our community will be healthy and we can host another great auto event in WNY. Helping to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 continues to be our highest priority.

"After extensive communication with our many partners, manufacturers, national touring partners, local officials, as well as experts in the medical field, we feel that pivoting to new show dates and a new format will be our safest course of action.”
