The 2019 Buffer Festival Gala Award Show


Like many events this year, Buffer Festival was also cancelled. But, that’s not stopping us from reliving our past years.

We uploaded our Buffer Festival 2019 in a playlist on YouTube for you, our audience, to experience again, in all its’ emotional, comedic, and inspiring moments.

You’ll find sketches from The Tin Can Bros, award announcements, acceptance speeches, and more. We even included all the award winning videos in between to really replicate the feeling of the entire gala.

Luckily, you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home in the opposite dress code of black-tie.

We hope you enjoy our Buffer Festival 2019 gala, both for those of you who attended and for those who weren’t able to.

Once again, congratulations to our 2019 award winners!
