ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester's historic Corn Hill Neighborhood is ready to welcome thousands of visitors once again to its annual Corn Hill Arts Festival this weekend.

It's a special year for the festival as they celebrate their 50th anniversary with a throwback theme to the event's origins in the 60s.

The event runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The parade begins Saturday at 11 a.m. and organizers encourage attendees to wear their groovy 60s garb to get in on the fun.


The festival has many art vendors, including consumable crafts, jewelry, paintings, drawings, graphics, photography, pottery and ceramics, mixed media, sculpture and glass, textile, weaving, leather and woodworking from some of the best regional artists.

Attendees can also grab their favorite food from the expanded food court with an assortment of specialty food trucks. Cold beer and local wine also available for people to enjoy while they listen to live music from the SBH Main Stage, featuring performances by Majestics, Danielle Ponder and the Tomorrow People and Inside Out.
