Ellicottville Fall Festival

The Ellicottville Fall Festival returns October 9-10 after being canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Brian McFadden, general manager of the Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce, the annual fall festival will be a little different this year. McFadden says the event will be scaled down this year and will be more family-friendly.

“This year we have about 20% fewer vendors, and it’s on purpose to expand and create more space for people to walk around,” he said. “There will be no carnival this year, and the parking lot has moved to the large empty lot on Jefferson Street in front of the Catholic Church known as the Signore property.”

Instead of the carnival, the PUNT Pediatric Cancer Collaborative will organize a fundraiser for families.

Much like in previous years, there will be a food court, an art exhibit, a craft exhibit, a street side market and much more. In addition, the health department will be holding a vaccination clinic on Saturday, October 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. near Five Star Bank and Katy’s Café.
