Each year, Rochester's Park Ave Summer Art Fest blows out the first full weekend in August as the neighborhood showcases the area's culture, art, and businesses. Park Avenue will be closed to vehicles, allowing ample room for a juried art show — featuring more than 350 artists in 13 different categories — vendors with varied arts such as ceramics, glass, and jewelry; five food courts and other food trucks; and three stages set up throughout the festival with performers from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. The festival will also include children's activities like bounce houses, obstacle courses, Gary the Happy Pirate, and YogaVibe "Yoga for Kids."
The Park Ave Summer Art Fest begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 5, and Sunday, August 6, along Park Avenue from Alexander Street to Culver Road. Admission is free. rochesterevents.com for more information.
