In 1999, a motorcycle rally fundraiser was started by Gowanda Harley-Davidson to benefit the efforts to restore Gowanda's historic Hollywood Theater. This full-weekend event is centered around live music with other unique activities and events plus a wide assortment of food vendors. This truly is the one Gowanda-area event where you get "once in a lifetime" experiences.
After a few years, the event was taken over by the Hollywood Theater and the name was changed to Hollywood Happening.
Originally modeled after Buffalo NY's Sheas Theater, Gowanda's historic Hollywood Theater has been undergoing a painstaking effort to restore it as a regional center for the performing arts. Held each June, the Harley Happening at the Hollywood is the principal fund-raiser towards the rehabilitation efforts. A motorcycle rally that draws bikers from several states and Canada, Harley Happening features continuous live music, good food and motorcycle-oriented events throughout the weekend.
