Elba Betterment Committee Upcoming Events/Fundraiser
Memorial Day Ceremony / Community Family Picnic
Monday, May 25
Ceremony will begin at 10:00 am at the Maple Lawn Cemetery.
After the ceremony there will be time to tour around the Historical Society building and then meet at the park for a community picnic. This picnic is open to all the residents of Elba and their families. WE plan on eating about 12:30. The Betterment Committee will be supplying the hot dogs, hamburgers and condiments. We ask each family to bring a dish to pass, and anything else you may need for a picnic (such as chairs, drinks, place settings, table cloths, etc.). Last year the community engaged in Ole’ Time games and will be again this year! If you have any suggestions or questions please contact a member.

About Elba

Elba is a charming community in Genesee County in which neighborliness, hard work, and community pride flourish. We are a picturesque town of multigenerational families, churches, fine sports teams, family farms and outstanding local artists.


Rich in history and agriculture, The Town of Elba is home to two of the nation's top 100 farms as well as one of America's most highly praised “community-supported agriculture” organic farms. Several family dairy farms are located within our town. 


Our 2500 acres of rich muckland soil yield a bounty of crops, most notably onions, earning Elba the title of “Onion Capital of the World.” Held in August, The Elba Volunteer Fire Department's annual Onion Festival is the social event of the year.




Located six miles north of Batavia, Elba has its own K-12 school, which is a source of pride and community spirit. 

Elba is a friendly and close-knit place. Life in Elba proceeds at a more human pace than in the cities and suburbs; people know each other and look out for one another. We welcome you, either as a visitor or a new neighbor.

The Daily News is the official paper where all of the town’s legal ads are published.
