The Dansville area offers a variety of activities, attractions, and festivals year-round, as well as including two of New York’s beautiful state parks. Stony Brook State Park is a five minute drive south from the village, and Letchworth State Park – the “Grand Canyon of the East” – with its breathtaking waterfalls, can be found 15 minutes to the west.
Fishing, boating and hunting, are in ample supply in the surrounding hillsides and nearby lakes and streams. Unique activities such as flying, soaring, and ballooning are very popular in our valley.
Dansville hosts one of the major annual events in this part of the state, the NYS Festival of Balloons. During the Labor Day weekend, residents and visitors are treated to a flight exhibition of over 50 colorful hot air balloons filling the skies.
