Rushford Labor Day 2018

Rushford Labor Day Weekend September 1st, 2nd, 3rd

For 110 years people have been flocking over to Rushford, NY, for the end-of-summer celebration of Labor Day. It is an annual tradition of fun family activities we all have come to know and love. It is one of those memories we carry into our adult lives of being a child and growing up here in Allegany County. While we never really looked forward to going back to school, somehow joining up with our neighbors and friends one last time at Rushford’s Labor Day weekend festivities always seemed to make it a little more tolerable.

There are plenty of things to see and do while in town. The hub of activities takes place at Rushford’s Legion Park where you will find arts & crafts along with other vendors, including a variety of food offerings for sale.

There is an antique tractor pull where the test of time of the old machines and the operator’s skill and knowledge has a lot to do with the outcome. There’s also a garden tractor pull for those who may be slightly intimidated by the bigger tractors. It all ends with the fantastic display of fireworks over the lake. Yes, there’s a lake in Rushford too. Maybe bring your swimsuit, boat, and fishing gear along.

Being in Rushford on Labor Day is where it’s happening every year. Go ahead, get over to Rushford and check it out. Have a memorable and enjoyable Labor Day Weekend this year!
