#VisitROC's Guide To Park Ave Fest

Thursday, July 18, 2019 3:00 PM by Visit Rochester Staff

Renowned for its architecture, culture, and urban atmosphere, the Park Avenue neighborhood is transformed for one weekend each year into a one-of-a-kind shopping mecca, filled with original creations from more than 350 artists, craftspeople, and exhibitors for the Park Ave Summer Art Festival. Exhibitors set up from curb to sidewalk, and Park Avenue itself closes to vehicular traffic, filling the avenue from Alexander Street to Culver Road with festival-goers.

We're sharing what you need to know before you go to the 43rd annual Park Ave Summer Art Festival this August 3-4, 2019.
