Fred Saradin, City Auditor stated, “Although it’s deemed a fundraising event for the stadium, the OLDC would like to showcase the stadium ‘as the place to be’ for events throughout the year. The Buffalo Philharmonic, the Beach Boys, even 1930s baseball teams used to frequent the stadium grounds.”

Bradner Stadium was once a source of pride for Olean residents. Let’s get it back… Get back that pride! For general information, please call the City Of Olean at (716) 376-5613 or email fsaradin@cityofolean.org, and for retail vendor information, GOACC at 716-372-4433 or email info@oleanny.com.
