2020 Corn Hill Arts Festival Goes Virtual!

52nd Annual Corn Hill Arts Festival invites the community to shop our artists online.

Rochester, NY, July 7, 2020 – The Corn Hill Arts Festival, presented by ESL Federal Credit Union is continuing its tradition of showcasing talented, original artists from across the US and Canada in a virtual format!

The Corn Hill Neighbors Association is excited to announce that beginning July 11th, our 2020 line-up of artists will be available online! The 52nd annual Corn Hill Arts Festival was cancelled due to Covid-19, but we want to encourage both our local and online communities to support and shop from our over 300 juried artisans. Your support of them during this difficult time is very much appreciated. Our artists can be found online at cornhillartsfestival.com

“Artists depend on events like Corn Hill to make a living. We understand the hardship cancellation of large events can be on them and are trying to help by refunding deposits and creating an online/virtual shopping opportunity for them, said Nick Howell the 2020 Chairperson”.

We are also encouraging the public to wear their favorite Corn Hill Arts Festival shirt or cap and show your support by sharing images on Facebook and Instagram during our July 11th & 12th weekend. 

Corn Hill Neighbors work year-round to prepare for the Festival. This year the streets will still be active with volunteers working together to spruce up the area. On Saturday, July 11th from 9am- 12 noon, neighbors will meet at Lunsford Park. Coffee and donuts at 9am will be available. If you’d like to pitch in, bring your own tools. Rakes and garbage bags will be available. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
