The Corn Hill Arts Festival is all volunteer run and is officially recognized as one of the top 200 festivals by Sunshine Artist Magazine. The 2013 Corn Hill Arts Festival has something for everyone and is very focused on family friendly events.

The Corn Hill Arts Festival is a longtime Rochester tradition (45 years!).  More than 200,000 visitors are expected to attend this year’s celebration of arts, music and food.  More than 350 artists and crafts people will display and sell their creations and the air will be filled with the enchanting aromas of a wide variety of international food smells.

The Corn Hill neighborhood was named because of its large corn fields which helped feed the hogs in the many farms in the area in the early days .  It is the oldest neighborhood in Rochester.
