Waterfront Art Fest returns this weekend

Hot on the heels of the very successful Webster Jazz Fest comes the town’s next artistic festival, the Waterfront Art Festival.  It’s returning to North Ponds Park this weekend, July 27 and 28.

This popular festival features artists from all over Monroe County, who line North Ponds’ scenic and shaded walkways, displaying an incredible variety of hand-made craft items in all price ranges.

What’s really nice about this particular festival is that all of the artisans’ work is juried beforehand, which is why it is all so different and so high-quality. Plus there are food trucks, live entertainment, demonstrations and a wine, beer and cider-tasting tent. There’s plenty of free parking right on the grounds, and an expanded handicapped parking area.

The festival runs from 10 am to 5 pm Saturday and Sunday at North Ponds Park, off of Rt. 104 between Rt. 250 and Holt Road (take the Rt. 250 exit off Rt. 104).  If you’re coming from the west side, give yourself a little extra time to weave through the annoying 104 East detour down 590 south and back.

Admission is $3, no charge for kids 12 and under. For more information, click here for the Waterfront Art Festival website.
