FESTIVAL | Susan B. Anthony Fest


Celebrating the 95th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote, commonly known as the "Susan B. Anthony Amendment," this festival will memorialize one of Rochester's most famous civil rights icons.

Appropriately situated at Susan B. Anthony Square Park (between Madison Street and King Street), the festival will feature live music from the Rochester Ukulele Orchestra and Matt Sauer, and artisanal crafts from Gods and Gladiators and Voter's Walk, among others. In addition, there will be free walking tours of the historic neighborhood, named in honor of Susan B. Anthony, as well as discounted admission to the Susan B. Anthony House from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Susan B. Anthony Fest will be held on Sunday, August 16, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit
