A wonderful Fairport Tradition - Fairport Canal Days!

On Sat. and Sunday, June 6th and 7th, the Main St. in Fairport and several side streets are closed to traffic as artisans, food vendors and entertainers take to the streets!
Canal Days has been a tradition in Fairport for 39 years, rain or shine.  It is a wonderful opportunity to see neighbors and friends, listen to great music, eat, drink,  and,  be wowed by the crafts and artistry created by the 200+ artisans in attendance.  Hours are 10-6 on Sat. and 10-5 on Sunday.
And the best kept “secret” may be the Chicken BBQ on Friday evening, June 5th, from 4:30 to 9:00 pm at Fairport Junction (Liftbridge Lane East).  Also enjoy a free, live concert performance by some of Rochester’s best known bands.

See you there!
