The Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC) is transforming the quality of life in the Southern Tier of New York State through education, service and community outreach. Every class we teach, every child who paints, every grant we administer, every event we promote, every artist we support, every tourist we draw, every festival we organize, is for the purpose of making this beautiful place we live an even better place. An interesting place. A stimulating place. A place where people want to live, and work, and raise families.

Patrons can find regional arts & cultural events there and organizations can post their events directly!
REGIONAL EVENTS CALENDAR LAUNCHED! Promoting the cultural arts in our region is a primary mission of the Cattaraugus County Arts Council. To that end, for several years CCAC has been publicizing regional events through an email newsletter sent to a CCAC subscriber list. To provide easier access by the public and give organizations the ability to submit their own events directly, CCAC has commissioned a Regional Community Events website calendar. Cultural organizations, non-profits, artists, and businesses can submit arts events for any of the following categories: dance, fairs & festivals, film, galleries, music, reading & lectures, theater, and classes. Patrons of the arts can find regional arts events listed in one calendar so you can easily find events and groups you like to see and support. Come one and all to find the arts at events.myartscouncil.net.
CCAC's programs and services are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support comes from the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning, and Tourism, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, community business sponsors, and private memberships and donations.
CCAC is the proud recipient of a 2015 Give for Greatness General Operating Grant, a program of Arts Services Initiative of Western New York.
