2016 Park Ave Summer Art Fest Poster


Rolled Poster

SKU: PAF2016 Category:


Designed by Carol Acquilano

Carol Acquilano is a painter, printmaker and bookbinder. She has a studio in the Anderson Arts building and also works outdoors en-plein-air. She is best known for her colorful expressionist style landscapes. The image for the 2016 festival poster gave her the opportunity to paint favorite scenes of the beautiful “Crescent Street”, that is known as Vick Park A and Vick Park B.

Named for James Vick, these streets were part of a racetrack on his nursery’s land. The track’s two straight-aways became Vick Park A and Vick Park B. Vick was a successful seedsman, horticulturalist and publisher of a gardening magazine who eventually sold his business to the Burpee Seed Co., still in existence today. A local hero of the Flower City.

2020 Rochester Lilac Festival announcement

As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.

As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.

Hang in there and stay healthy.
