Most villages across the United States put up a Christmas Tree to celebrate the holiday season. It’s more tradition than anything else, and Ellicottville was no different. The tree would go up in time for the annual ‘Christmas in Ellicottville’ event, it’d be lit, and … we would go about our regular holiday festivities. It was just another Christmas Tree … until last year.

Art and yoga, two things great for the soul, combine forces at Ellicottville’s Gallery 14731 for the wintertime.

Henry W. Longfellow coined the phrase “One, if by land, and two, if by sea,” in his epic poem, Paul Revere’s Ride. With over 513,000 acres to explore in Pennsylvania’s only national forest - the Allegheny National Forest - you may choose to travel by land (hiking/biking), by sea (kayaking/canoeing), or by air (in a vintage bi-plane).

The art of Falconry dates back at least 4,000 years, and birds of prey have been one of man’s fiercest and most efficient hunting weapons. WNY native and Master Falconer Jonathan Clarkson —  or “American Hawkeye” — brings the ancient art to life with demonstrations and a passion matched only by his birds. 

The craft beer and specialty winemaker revolution is here to stay, and Holiday Valley invites you to its biggest party of the year. Beer, wine, cider, live music and food turns a typical blasé November weekend into a can’t-miss event.

For Western New York resident Christine Wittmann, it was a priority to find a work/life balance that would allow her to spend more time in Ellicottville with her kids who are on the freestyle team and her husband who became a ski patroller at Holiday Valley.

When Dan Buringrud left corporate sales for seminary school in St. Louis, he was making a major life change.
