Located on the south side of the shoreline, Olcott is booming with attractions and festivals such as the Olcott Pirate Festival. This unique event is perfect for those that are looking for three things to do in Newfane but be sure to wear your pirate costume. This festival is located in Krull Park. Krull Park also hosts a Celtic festival and the Labor Day weekend parade. This park can be found north of Main Street on the shore of Lake Ontario. The sandy beach and open grass area with a splash park, pavilions, picnic tables are perfect for creating memories with friends and family. Get a football game or a volleyball game going, there is plenty of room with the baseball diamonds, lacrosse fields, and soccer fields stretching over 230 acres. Olcott Beach is perfect for family reunions. Enjoy Sunday night concert series in the summer with a picnic and bottle of wine from the area’s local wineries along the Niagara Wine Trail.
The Niagara Wine trail is becoming a world recognized up-and-coming wine trail. This western side of the state is warmer than the rest, providing just the right climate for grape growing and protection from frost. A perfect glass of Merlot or Cabernet may just be what the doctored ordered. Just 45 minutes away, you can find yourself at one of the most popular and most visited sites in the USA by going to Niagara Falls, NY. Niagara Falls is the oldest state park in the USA. It is a magnificent site for a romantic dinner, picnic, wedding, banquet or proposal. It is pet friendly as long as they are on a leash and to experience the park itself (not including parking or attractions) this day trip is free. This unforgettable trip is spectacular. What a great way to experience history, culture and nature all at once.
The Olcott Harbor is where the action is. Watch the seamen come in with their catch of the day or rent a boat of your own and slip into the water and see what life is like on Lake Ontario. Perhaps you will catch a nice whitefish and pair it with your Riesling? Or, skip to dessert and just have the Arrowhead Spring’s Vidal Blanc Icewine; it’s definitely part of cabin time here.
Kids and family enjoy partaking in the Olcott Carousel Park, where the recently renovated park is a symbol of our past and a sign for our future. This park is free but rides are only 25 cents!
