2017 Rochester Guide to Festivals4/29/2017
Happy Spring! We are ready to enjoy all that Rochester has to offer. We live in a great community, with so many wonderful things to see & do. The highlight of a Spring/Summer in Rochester is definitely our festivals. I've got the early scoop for you, so you can start planning with our Rochester Festival Guide 2017! Here are some of the classics:
The Lilac Fest really kicks of festival season here in Roc City; what a great way to begin!! This is the biggest festivals in the area (did you know it is the largest FREE festival in North America!?), located all throughout Highland Park. They've got everything a good festival should have: music, food & fun! Plus, you'll be surrounded by gorgeous scenery- and hopefully some beautiful & fragrant lilacs!! You can even pick up a bush to take home with you!
The Lilac Fest begins May 12th and runs until the 21st. This year there is a policy that youth under 16 must be escorted by an adult. They are also trying to break the world record for longest hug relay. Check out their website for all the details & to find out all the special events planned!
Corn Hill Arts Festival
At the Corn Hill Fest, art is the main attraction! With hundreds of artists, you are sure to find something cool for your living room! Happening July 8th and 9th--we're coming up on 50 years!
Another biggie in the Rochester area, the Park Ave Fest is a whole lot of fun! They are celebrating over 30 years of food, music, art & community. Another free festival (how awesome is our city!?), taking place on August 5th and 6th. This festival is great for the whole family, and there is always a street performer, musician, or cool shop to check out. If you're a foodie, this is a great event for you! In addition to the great restaurants and bistros on Park Ave, there will also be over 40 food stands with all your favorite!
Summer is just the first half of a great festival season in Rochester. There's more to come in the fall, so we'll keep you posted!!
