What to do in Rochester? My Rochester calendar provides easy access to things to do in Rochester. You can look in just about any paper, pin board, or website to find a Rochester event listing or a Rochester calendar. Most of these local Rochester NY events are available to the public.
Summers in Rochester are especially fantastic. Celebrations of spring Lilac season starts off the summer. Vendors and festivities from Rochester and other areas also center around the Erie Canal. At the beginning of spring, the canal opens and swells from both the seaway and Lake Erie creating a frothy passage for small vessels and recreational boats. The Greek population in my Rochester also have their own festival, just to name a few. For the rest of the hot summer months, countless concerts invade the Rochester NY music scene from our own classical orchestra to Hardcore and Metal bands at the music hall on Water St. Local Rochester music primarily centers around hip indie and folk sounds. These are just a few of the musical things to do in Rochester.
Sports are also an integral part of the Rochester calendar and lifestyle. Winter starts off our year and also our sports season. Skiing and snowboarding are easy to do with so much cold and snow. Ice skating at nearby rinks are filled Spring starts the Rochester semi pro baseball season which is “ball” to all who have attended. Professional golf tournaments also eat up a few weeks in the Rochester calendar. With the season of fall also brings football and hockey season and with Buffalo so close to us, many Rochesterians are huge fans. Games are spread nicely throughout the year so you can catch them all!
The arena and war memorial house a diverse range of shows and performances just about every weekend. The arena transforms into a stage for concerts, an open floor for military tattoos to drill and play, a grassy green for sporting events and games, and even ices over to create a glassy rink.
