Rochester Lilac Festival

Rochester Lilac Festival

Saturday, May 8, 2021 from 10:30am to 7:00pm


The largest free festival of its kind in North America, spring in Upstate NY is welcomed with three incredible weekends celebrating being together once again safely. Peek around every corner and you’ll discover magnificent gardens  and exhilarating special events.


Art in the Park

Visitors can arrive at the art shows with a two-minute walk from the main festival site down South Avenue or on the paths through the lilacs (just follow the signs pointing the way!) Due to the COVID pandemic, there will be an entrance/exit at each end of the show.  Visitors will be allowed to enter up to the allowed capacity at the time of the shows, with a one-out, one-in policy after that capacity has been reached. 

Art in the Park is a juried show which features the original work of artists from around the country with jewelry, clothing, ceramics, paintings, soaps, woodwork and much, much more. Again, because of the pandemic, the number of artists participating has been reduced for everyone’s safety. 

11:30-1:45 pm | 2:45-5:00 pm | 6:00-8:30 pm Craft Beer Tasting Expo
