ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Memorial Art Gallery is moving the Clothesline Festival online.

The Clothesline Online Festival will be a week-long online event from Sept. 12 through Sept.18.


“The most important concern is for the safety and health of our artists, staff, volunteers, vendors, musicians and our community,” Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director Jonathan Binstock said. “The decision to move this year’s Festival online was extremely difficult. It is MAG’s largest annual fundraiser and a ton of fun. It’s always a highlight of my summer.”

The festival has been a Rochester staple for 64 years and welcomed artists from around the U.S. to take part in sharing their creativity.

The MAG has also reached out to all confirmed artists to issue refunds for booth reservations or transfers to the 2021 Festival.

All artist inquiries regarding refunds, booth transfers, or registrations should be emailed to
