A New Era
After completing its first half-century last summer, the Corn Hill Arts Festival will usher in a new era by celebrating its 51st year July 13th & 14th. Over 325 artists and craftspeople will line the beautiful Corn Hill streets with a range of offerings, from food items and sauces to metal work and lawn art. In addition to the creativity on display, you’ll find four live entertainment stages, as well as food trucks set up throughout the neighborhood. Come experience a variety of activities for children, families, and adults!
Live Music on Four Stages
One cannot overstate the incredible array of art and craftsmanship to be enjoyed, admired, and purchased at the Corn Hill Arts Fest. It’s the one event that local collectors look forward to each year. However, you’ll be missing out if your visit doesn’t delight all of your senses. Grab a bite to eat from one of the many food trucks and find a spot in front of one of the four stages which will be showcasing live entertainment throughout the weekend. The lineup of 27 free performances will cover a striking array of genres, from pop, folk, and country to jazz, roots, blues, and even Nuevo Flamenco.

Local Craft Beverages
Adult beverage enthusiasts will find new and old favorites at the Corn Hill Arts Festival’s Beer, Wine, Cider and Spirit Gardens. New for this year is the Michelob Ultra Gazebo Stage at Lunsford Circle, which will be filled with your favorite New York State wineries, cideries, and distilleries. Beer, wine and ciders will also be poured at the WellNow Urgent Care Main Stage/Food Court venue located off Adams Street.

The 2019 Corn Hill Arts Festival takes place on Saturday, July 13th, from 10 am – 6 pm, and on Sunday, July 14th, from 10 am to 5 pm. The setting is nine tree-lined streets in the Corn Hill district — one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Rochester and a showplace of historic architecture, manicured streets, and inviting parks. It is located on the banks of the Genesee River just a few blocks from the city’s business district.
