Ellicottville's Fall Festival

On October 6th and 7th, 2018, come to Ellicottville’s Fall Festival; the oldest and largest, takes place when the foliage of the surrounding hills are ablaze with color!  Tens of thousands of festival goers make for a lively weekend of unique foods, fine art, and an arts and craft show, carnival rides, live entertainment and much more. Fall Festival is a fun, family-friendly way to kick off the autumnal fun in Ellicottville. In addition to the vendors and the fun downtown, Fall Festival extends to Holiday Valley with a 5K and chairlift rides to Spruce Lake! Holimont’s Exhibition Express will also be giving views of the valley on Saturday from 11:30 to 4pm. What a better vantage to see the leaves change throughout the valley! The fun continues in the evening, as the local venues bring in some of the best entertainment the area has to offer! Fall Festival is THE way to kick off the changing seasons in Western New York.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
