You may have heard that the former Elks building on Veterans Square is going to be torn down. It's true. City Council voted tonight to have a demolition permit issued. According to the resolution, " ... the cost to repair the building far exceeds the building's value." Mayor Tom Riel has more to say about that. On the other side of the coin, one downtown business continues to make improvements to its building. We'll bring you the rest of the story shortly. ... See MoreSee Less

Music, food, fun and games (focused to the family crowd) will be the main ingredients of Bradner Bash.  Local bands will perform during the bash.

Food and retail vendors will be located throughout the venue.  Vendors signed up to date include: Brittani’s Country Loft; Storm Athletics; Olean Times Herald; Allegany Cattaraugus Co Cancer Screenings; Good Times of Olean; Gift of Life Bone Morrow Registry; and Sparky’s Pizza.  Sanzo Beverage has signed on as beverage supplier.  There will be an admission fee of $5 with under 16 FREE when accompanied by an adult.

William Aiello, City of Olean Mayor stated, “Although it’s deemed a fundraising event for the stadium, the OLDC would like to showcase the stadium ‘as the place to be’ for events throughout the year.  The Buffalo Philharmonic, the Beach Boys, even 1930s baseball teams used to frequent the stadium grounds.”

Hinsdale Horseradish Festival @ Hinsdale Memorial Park
Jun 3 all-day
Hinsdale Horseradish Festival @ Hinsdale Memorial Park | Hinsdale | New York | United States

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 heldJune 4 & 5, 2016, 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.

Here is the schedule:
Friday June 3rd- 5-9pm: Festival Kickoff Party
6-9pm: Diggin Roots Band
Saturday June 4th- 11am: Fesival opens (closes at 6pm)
9am-6pm: Knockerball tournament hosted by Good Times of Olean.
3-6pm: Zephyr Band
Sunday June 5th- 8am: 5k registration (race beings at 9am)
11am: Festival opens (closes at 4pm)
1-4pm: Nick Kody and the Creek Road Band

Admission is free for all children under the age of 16 that are accompanied by an adult.  Sunday will be free admission for Veterans and First Responders.  The Cattaraugus County 4-H will have a petting zoo for the younger children.

Vendor applications have been mailed and can also be downloaded and printed from our vendor page. The pricing has remained the same as 2015. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first-served basis.
