If the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach, then Olean is a destination visitors are sure to love on July 27. Time to loosen that belt a few notches, gather family and friends, and head down to the 65th Annual Art in the Park and the 24th Annual Taste of Olean on July 27, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Cattaraugus County Campus of Jamestown Community College.

The Taste of Olean, co-provides an affordable and enjoyable festival in a socially responsible manner for families of the greater Olean area, enhances the quality of life in Olean and promotes downtown. The Taste of Olean is a festival filled with great food and entertainment. Admission to the event is free. Pay as you eat!

More than 40 items, ranging from Asian to barbecue to Italian to sweet treats and everything in between, are available for sampling from the 13 booths. The restaurants will present “tastes” of foods, not whole meals or sandwiches — smaller portions with affordable costs between 50 cents and $3.50.

Art in the Park, sponsored by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC) held in conjunction with the Taste of Olean, is a juried fine arts show with a longstanding tradition of showcasing the finest art in southwestern New York and northwestern Pennsylvania.
