Annual Events and Festivals

Nearly 2,000 antique vendors descend upon the small hamlet of Bouckville every mid-August for the annual Madison-Bouckville Antique Week, the largest outdoor antique event in New York State. 

Did you know that Chittenango is the birthplace of "Oz"? It’s true! L. Frank Baum, author of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz was born here and his legacy is celebrated each June during Oz-Stravaganza!?
