The festival will take place Friday June 2nd 4:30 to 9:00, Saturday, June 3rd 10am-6pm and Sunday, June 4th 10am-5pm. Something for everyone including artisans, live music, family activities with the Perinton Recreation KidZone in the Northeast public parking lot and plenty of food. 


Some of the highlights  of the festival include:

Friday Night Chicken BBQ

On Saturday night the Canal Nights puts the focus on entertainment, bringing headliner bands to the stage under the big tent in Fairport Junction. Here, food vendors are open throughout the evening and wine and beer are offered for concert goers to enjoy on site.
