Summer Music Festival


Summer can be crazy, but here, in Ellicottville, we want you to come and relax, as a family, and listen to some great music in an outdoor setting. Come and enjoy the Ellicottville Summer Music Festival Weekend in a family-friendly environment. In Ellicottville, it’s all about family.

The Ellicottville Summer Music Festival is one of the only outdoor music venues that allows guests to bring a picnic basket in with them. Bring dinner and a blanket, even your lawn chair. Enjoy the show and have a family meal outdoors, in the fresh air. Parking is free and the entire venue is wheelchair accessible.

Friday, July 3rd – Kick off the Ellicottville Summer Music Festival Weekend, as well as the American Independence Day Weekend, with a Top of the Mountain Party! Take the nearly mile-long chair lift ride to a celebration, complete with drinks and hors d’oeuvres! After a ride back to the base of the mountain, the party will continue at Holiday Valley’s Main Lodge with a Caribbean Poker Night! Use the funny money that comes with your ticket to grow your pot. Make sure you have a good amount, because all of that “money” will be used to bid on all kinds of items during an auction!

BPOSaturday, July 4th  – The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra will take to the stage on the slopes of Holiday Valley at 8 p.m. May the Force be with you during the second half of the show, as the 80-piece orchestra plays favorites from Star wars…and characters from the movies will be roaming the resort. The finale will pair the Philharmonic with choreographed fireworks to celebrate America’s Independence. Tickets are $35, $25 until June 21, and children 12 and under are FREE. A VIP Weekend Package is also available that includes a sponsors dinner this evening.
