Voted Western New York's Best Pumpkin Patch for Family Fun, Pumpkinville is a fantastic fall tradition for most families in all of WNY and beyond.  New for 2019 is Sunflower Daze!

Sunflower Daze at Pumpkinville

During our first week (September 14-22) of the 2019 season, the owners will be hosting “Sunflower Daze“, in collaboration with The Pink Pumpkin Project in Olean, NY. Choose from the thousands of sunflowers available for purchase, or cut your own, and take advantage of photo opportunities. All proceeds from sunflower sales benefit The Pink Pumpkin Project.  As always, admission to Pumpkinville is free.  Join us to help support a great cause!

Stop by and take a ride on the Pumpkinville train with six cars and a caboose! It is a trackless train and a new depot has been built to welcome visitors as they board the train. As always, you can enjoy the hayrides, pony rides, corn cannon shoot, Storyland, cow train, goat mountain and 6 acre corn field maze. Purchase a variety of fresh picked apples or visit the Pick-Your-Own-Pumpkin Patch. Watch them press fresh apple cider! And to satisfy a sweet tooth, there is an on-site bakery, Di's Pies and Bake Shoppe. Watch as pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies and muffins and pumpkin and apple pies and more are made, then buy and eat them as they come out of the oven.

There is a 3 acre play park, not one, not two but three 19 foot slides, Rolling mounds, teeter totters. There is something at Pumpkinville everybody will enjoy, including a Goat Walk and apple blasters that are ten times as much fun as the old corn cannons. The Pumpkinville Grille features hot dogs, sausage, BBQ pork, chili and home-made curly fries available daily, with mouth watering chicken BBQ dinners on weekends. Maybe most importantly, is the pumpkin ice cream!!

New for the 2019 season:is the Happy Horse Carousel for children to enjoy. There is also a new "Birds and Bees" exhibit that features a large beehive with glass walls so visitors can see the bees activity inside. On the other side of the building is a viewable hatching area for baby chicks. This year's cornmaze is sponsored by Ellicottville Brewing Company, which will be presenting beer tastings on four weekends in October. Their Pumpkinville Latte beer is a must try!

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
