Allegany County summer activities level heating up

The number of free and primarily-free events for individuals and families throughout Allegany County and beyond is increasing as summer progresses.

Many outdoor concerts and a play, a Vacation Bible School, a presentation on equine therapy with horses, a family movie and a free military gear giveaway for veterans all are occurring this week, even before several more activities on Friday through Sunday in conjunction with the Great Wellsville Balloon Rally, including Saturday’s Main Street Festival.

Check them out — there currently are more than 130 through the end of the year — on our exclusive Allegany Hope Community Calendar, available through the link at the top of this page or at

We are adding to our Calendar often, so check back for updates. And, if you are aware of an event which isn’t listed, have the activity coordinator email complete information to or use the Submit an Event link at the top of this page for publication consideration. Submissions should not be submitted by messaging.
