The Waterfront Art Festival is a fine art and craft show and sale that was started in 1973 on the Canandaigua City Pier. It was held in Canandaigua for 41 years and then moved to Webster with a warm welcome in 2015. We love the way the Town of Webster works with us to help create a wonderful event and the exceptionally nice reception we received from the people of Webster and surrounding area. We're NEVER MOVING AGAIN.
The artwork is the star at this Festival. We offer live music, Tastings Tent, food court, artists who demonstrate their skills, and some activities but the artwork is why we're doing this ! Western New York and the Finger Lakes region have some of the most talented artists in the country so join us to see their work and take home the pieces you fall in love with.
One of the things I hear the most about the Festival is that the size is big enough for a great selection but not so huge you're too tired to think by the end of the walk. I think that's important because while I hope the Festival is the highlight of your day - I know that life can be too busy for it to be the only thing you do on some days.
So, I hope you'll join us and have a beautiful day in the park with us !
