M&T Bank Clothesline Festival
Saturday & Sunday, September 7 & 8, 2013
Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester
Fifty-seven years after the first Clothesline, Rochester's largest and longest-running fine art and crafts festival continues to evolve. It's now the place to experience all-day live entertainment, sample food from some of Rochester’s favorite vendors, enjoy free family art activities, visit the museum, and of course, browse and buy original artwork throughout the grounds.
Each year sees the addition of more festivals, but Clothesline remains a favorite with artists. Because the Gallery charges admission and screens the work of the exhibitors, serious shoppers are more in evidence than at other festivals.
Clothesline remains popular with visitors, too. In recent years, it has earned five "Best of Rochester" awards from City Newspaper readers.
With the completion of the Memorial Art Gallery's Centennial Sculpture Park, this year’s festival will once again have full use of the MAG campus. 2013 grounds map
