After consulting with the City of Rochester and Monroe County Health Department, the Park Avenue Revitalization Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Park Avenue Summer Art Festival until August 7 and 8, 2021. We are grateful for the community support, as we shift our focus from the Art Festival to assisting the small business impact on Park Avenue from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Saturday & Sunday
August 1, 2020: 10 am - 6 pm
August 2, 2020: 10 am - 5 pm
The Park Avenue neighborhood, well known for its hip urban atmosphere, culture and historic homes, annually closes to traffic and opens to festival attendees to enjoy 1¼ miles from Alexander Street to Culver Road of local businesses and exhibitors set up from curb to sidewalk. Creating a one-of-a-kind shopping destination, filled with original creations from more than 350 artists, crafts people and exhibitors from the U.S. and Canada! Come enjoy all that Park Avenue has to offer including: amazing shops, restaurants, artisan vendors, musical acts, delicious food trucks and so much more!
