Schedule of events and activities is growing for the second annual “Eliot Ness Fest: Touched by the Untouchable”

Eliot Ness Fest

Schedule of events and activities is growing for the second annual “Eliot Ness Fest: Touched by the Untouchable” scheduled for the July 19-21 weekend in Coudersport, Pa. 

With sponsorship by the Potter County Historical Society, an expanded planning committee has been busy laying the groundwork for a celebration that returns all of the highlights from this year’s event and adds several more attractions. Committee members emerged from last week’s meeting with several announcements:

--Plans are progressing for a dramatic re-enactment of the trial of Al Capone at the Potter County Courthouse. An effort is also underway for Eliot Ness Fest 2019 to host the first-ever reunion of the descendants of Eliot Ness and his band of “Untouchables.” Stay tuned for details!

--The popular Vintage Eliot Ness/Al Capone Era (pre-1933) Car and Truck Show will return, with most or all of last year’s participants already registered. A separate Vintage Ness Cleveland Era (late ‘30s and early ‘40s) Car and Truck Show is in the works for the street where Eliot Ness lived. Also, Law Enforcement Vehicles of various vintages and types will be displayed at the courthouse square.

--Street theater performances, an expanded parade, fireworks, and other entertainment are in the planning stages. Colorful historic interpretative bus tours will also be expanded.

--A number of prominent authors and historians will be appearing, presenting fascinating programs at the Coudersport Theatre, where feature films and fascinating documentaries will air all three days.

--An expanded Law Enforcement Spotlight is in the works, headquartered at the courthouse square, with a broad variety of exhibits, programs, and appearances by special guests.

--Many area businesses are already onboard with plans to partner with the committee in expanding the venues for the thousands of visitors who are expected.
Further updates will be posted on Facebook and on the official Eliot Ness Fest website (eliotnessfest.com).
