Pucho, Inc. and The Olivencia Community Center will be celebrating the 44th Annual Grease Pole Festival on July 19th, 20th and 21st. We will be celebrating 3 days of traditional music, ethnic food, and dancing; a celebration of community and culture. We will have activities for the entire family.
The festival is free of admission, and will take place at 261 Swan St., the corner of Swan and Chicago. The entertainment will include various genres of Latino music including salsa, reggaeton, merengue, and bachata, with artists coming from New York City, Orlando, and Puerto Rico. There will also be local musicians performing from Buffalo and Rochester. As one would expect of an ethnic festival, there will be plenty of ethnic food available for purchase. For the young ones, there will be an array of carnival rides set up.
