The Greater Allegany County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce its Spring and Summer Recreation Show to be held on May 6th and 7th, 2017. The two day show is a concept developed by the Chamber’s Events Committee, headed by Chairman Steve Ackley and Tourism Specialist Steve Havey. “We felt the need for an event like this in Allegany County and the committee has worked very hard to make this a fun show”, said Mr. Ackley.
|| Saturday, May 6: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Sunday, May 7: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
|| Allegany County Fairgrounds, Angelica, NY
|| Admission $3.00
Children under 10 free admission
Gretchen Hanchett, the Executive Director of the Chamber added “We are fortunate to have secured the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Angelica for our Recreation Show. Not only is it large enough and centrally located, but the venue has easy access to Interstate 86. This means that our show will be more attractive to out-of-county patrons.”
The show will highlight many kinds of recreational pursuits and the equipment needed to make them fun.
