Picnic in the Park
On Saturday, July 5th the Elba Betterment Committee will be hosting a community wide family picnic in the park. We will supply the hot dogs and hamburgers, rolls and condiments. Each family is to bring their own "side dishes" and picnic needs such as plates, utensils, blankets, chairs, drinks (sorry, no alcohol allowed in park). We also ask that each family bring a dessert to pass. With cooperation of the weather, we would like to get the families involved in some fun "ole time games" such as sack/3 legged races, egg tosses, tug of war and so on. This is open to the Elba Community and their families only.

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.
