Street festival is back to South Wedge after 10 year absence

South Wedge event returns

The festival returned after a 10-year hiatus.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Rochester’s historic South Wedge neighborhood held a street festival on Saturday. It took place on South Avenue, between Averill and Gregory.

Because of Covid, the neighborhood’s planning committee was unable to hold their annual fundraiser, so they wanted a way to give back, and hundreds of people came out to enjoy a day of festivities.

“I see something that’s going to grow. People are excited about what we are doing, it’s been 10 years since we had a street festival down in the South Wedge and we think this is a great building block that will continue for years after,” Frank Logan Board Chair, South Wedge Planning Committee.

The planning committee says they want to provide a way to make life better in the South Wedge.
