An exciting new event was the talk of Potter County and beyond last summer. Eliot Ness Fest/Touched by the Untouchable will return in 2019! It's scheduled for Friday through Sunday, July 19-21, 2019. Not only will we celebrate the legacy of the famous Eliot Ness, who spent the final years of his life in Coudersport, we will also recall the Roaring '20s with a whole host of fun events and fascinating programming with broad appeal.
Ness's name is known far and wide as a symbol of courageous and effective law enforcement. The story of Eliot Ness and his Untouchables has been circulated around the world in print, stage and screen.
Last year's inaugural festival attracted a considerable amount of attention to our community as well as an estimated 4,000 visitors. Virtually everyone we spoke with expressed a desire to return in 2019 and bring along family members and friends.
The weekend will be filled with prominent speakers presenting insightful and captivating programs, costumed character, lively street theater, three authentic vintage vehicle shows, a parade, fun events for both adults and children, and more.
