Over 100 artists, crafters, food vendors and sponsors gather on Main Street in Canandaigua for this annual rite of summer.
Each year, our festival brings new artists in almost every category, including ceramics, pottery, jewelry, woodworking, leather, fiber, glass, photography, and gourmet foods. Artists enter the festival through a jury process and set up along Main Street to display their wares. The festival also features young artists, giving student artists the chance to display and sell their handiwork.
Musical acts will play at the Commons Park Stage all three days of the festival. Commons Park Stage is located on the corner of Coach and Main. Performances range from Bluegrass, Rock & Roll to Jazz, and singer-songwriter Acoustics that feature incredible talent from the Upstate New York region.
With the festival’s wide variety of food vendors, you’ll be sure to find all of your festival favorites including fried dough, kettle corn, fresh-squeezed lemonade, fruit smoothies and fried Oreos. In addition to traditional festival fare, we also have various food trucks join us throughout the three days of the festival.
There are several free municipal parking lots located throughout the City of Canandaigua. Lots can be found on West Avenue, Ontario Street, Mill Street, and Bristol Street.
