Downtown Coudersport is the location of this festival celebrating the historical and cultural significance of Eliot Ness in Coudersport.  Local merchants and historians will work together to take the heart of Potter County back to the Prohibition Era for a weekend.  An expanded planning committee has been busy laying the groundwork for a celebration that returns all of the highlights from the first Eliot Ness Fest and adds several more attractions.
