A Christmas Stroll

Celebrate the Holiday Season with Ellicottville's Living Nativity Scene!
December 11, 2021


A Christmas Stroll was created in 1987 by a group of citizens who wanted to organize such an event in the village. After brainstorming over coffee, it was decided that they wanted a live nativity scene with children dressed as angels and shepherds, who walked around the village and met at the gazebo. There, the baby Jesus was presented and caroling presided. The tradition has continued on for the past 29 years.

For many years pups of all shapes and sizes have paraded the streets with fun Reindeer antlers for our annual Reindog Parade! Bring your doggo and a festive pair of antlers to the village post office parking lot at 4:30PM on 12/11/21 to join in on the fun!
