Grape Festival Parade September 2012

You can find your favorite fun thing in Hanover!

Wine tasting, dining, shoping, golfing, fishing, boating, picnicing, swimming, snowmobiling

 Just an easy drive to exit 58 of Interstate 90 (30 minutes southwest of Buffalo) will drop you off on NYS Routes 5 & 20 - you are now at the sandy shores of Lake Erie and the beginning of the Lake Erie Wine Trail.

 

 

From the sandy beaches of SUNSET BAY to the down-home communities of Silver Creek and Forestville, your favorite activities, entertainment and festivals make your visit an experience to remember.   The summer recreation season is full of beach fun -  enjoy our public beaches, launch your boat, fish the waters of Lake Erie and Cattaraugus Creek, rent a cottage, and visit the beach clubs for dining, swimming, sun bathing and live music!

 

The Village of Silver Creek is host to the annual Festival of Grapes the third weekend in September, a children's fair in June, summer concerts in the park (evenings in July), Laurel Run (8K certified run, 5K walk) in July, a village-wide yard sale the first weekend in August and the Polar Bear Swim  in early January.  The Village of Forestville celebrates the harvest with a Fall Festival in October.   

 

You can find one-of-a-kind businesses like Stagecoach West and Just Pets(Routes 5 & 20) who sponsor equestrian competitions and pet shows.   If golfing is your passion visit our public golf courses - Tri-County Golf Club on Route 39 and Rosebrook Golf Course on Bebee Road.  Just across Cattaraugus Creek you'll find yourself at Seneca Bingo (also go-carts, batting cages, miniature golf and driving range).  If you've got a sweet tooth then you've got to stop at Valvo's candies(Routes 5 & 20).

 

For anyone interested in relocating to our community we have two fine K-12 school systems - Silver Creek Central and Forestville Central.  We are 15 minutes from SUNY Fredonia and Jamestown Community College North.  There are mature homes available in the villages of Silver Creek and Forestville and vacant rural land available for building lots.  Major employers include Lake Shore Health Care Center, Silver Creek and Forestville Central Schools, Petri Baking Products, Excelco/Newbrook Manufacturing, and Megatech/Bailey Manufacturing
