May 24, 2022

Ellicottville, New York, May 24, 2022 . . . Just south of the border in Western New York lies the family-friendly resort of Holiday Valley.  Experiencing Holiday Valley in the summer gives Canadians a chance to get out of the city and relax in the fresh air and uncrowded hills around Ellicottville. Visitors can golf the Double Black Diamond Course with 18 challenging and scenic holes, climb in the treetops at Sky High Adventure Park, zip down the mountain on the Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster, pan for treasures at Mr. Happy Gem Mining Company, cool off and relax poolside, enjoy the Cabana Bar, and mountain bike or hike the trails at the resort and adjacent state forest. 

But that’s not all!  Several festivals and events are planned for the Village of Ellicottville and Holiday Valley throughout the summer starting with Holiday Valley’s 8th annual Mudslide Obstacle Trail Run on June 18th. The Mudslide is muddy fun for the whole family with the option of a 3.5 mile or 5.4 mile course, 15 obstacles and a vibrant after-party.  The Summer Music Festival from July 1st to 3rd features “The Voices of Classic Rock”, featuring Practically Petty, a Tom Petty tribute band, followed by Asia featuring John Payne with special guests John Elefante, former lead singer of Kansas, and Alex Ligertwood, former lead singer of Santana, on Saturday night and the Buffalo Philharmonic and a grand fireworks show on Sunday night.  July 29th to 31st is the Jazz and Blues Weekend and the weekend of August 13th and 14th is the popular Taste of Ellicottville.
