2018 Hinsdale Horseradish Festival

Not only will you find everything horseradish, you'll find vendors with wine, craft beer, pottery, handmade jewelry, furniture, handmade soaps, country crafts, candles, paintings and more! The festival will be held June 2, 2018, at the Hinsdale Memorial Park, at 1547 Gile Hollow Road in the Town of Hinsdale.  The venue is ideal! The park is located only one-half mile south of I-86, directly off of Route 16. It’s an easy drive from anywhere in western NY or northern PA.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with our festival you may ask "Why a Horseradish Festival? Why Hinsdale"? Well, Cuba has their Garlic Festival, Franklinville has their Maple Festival, Bradford has their Stink Fest and Olean - well there is always something going on in Olean (except for that 1st weekend in June)… and we wanted Hinsdale to be remembered for something. Besides, in the early 1900’s, horseradish really was a “hot commodity” in Hinsdale. Maude Bell and her family grew horseradish right here along the banks of the Ischua Creek and hauled it by horse and buggy to the market in Olean.

Schedule forthcoming and will include live demonstrations, live music, magicians, and more!

Most Residents are Amish in the Town of Leon

There are approximately 1,380 residents in Leon with the Amish Community comprising about 76% of that number. The Old Order Amish settled in Leon in 1949. They do not believe in the modern conveniences. They have no electricity in their homes + travel by horse and buggy. 

If you are looking for someplace interesting to go, try the Leon area. It is right in the heart of Amish Country.
