Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development is in preparations for the 2nd Annual WILMA buy local event being held October 25 - 26, 2014 in the Corporate Building on the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds, Little Valley, NY.

WILMA, We Invite Local Manufacturers & Artisans, is a two-day event that will run on Saturday, October 25th 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday, October 26th 11 am– 3 pm. The family oriented, expo event is scheduled to include items handmade or manufactured in Cattaraugus County by our local artisans and manufacturers.
