A large and enthusiastic crowd of Corn Hill neighbors, local dignitaries, festival sponsors and supporters gathered at Tony D’s Banquet Room along the Genesee River for the annual Corn Hill Arts Festival poster unveiling. The June 24th event included speeches from Corn Hill Neighbors Association President Rob Goodling, Arts Festival Chairs Jeff Holdsworth and Joanie Fraver, Rochester Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon, and David Fiedler, CEO of the ESL Credit Union.

Deputy Mayor Redon and CEO Fiedler joined this year’s poster artist Kat Patterson in unveiling the 2014 festival poster. Many will remember Kat as last year’s first prize winner at the Emerging Artists venue. Her poster promises to be very popular with visitors and neighborhood collectors alike.

Corn Hill Arts Festival Committee

Simply put, this committee is the reason the Corn Hill Arts Festival is alive and well after forty years. The scope of this two-day festival for 200,000 guests requires hundreds of volunteers. To make it all work, the chairperson of the festival committee leads a management team whose members each lead a committee of their own. Planning for the next festival begins less than a month after a festival closes. Revenues from each year’s festival are used to fund all CHNA committees and projects. If you would like to become part of this exciting group, contact the festival chairperson.

  • Chair: Bill Kelly
  • Assistant Chair: Elizabeth Brandt
  • Board Liaison: Brad Forth

Meetings: Sundays, 6:30 p.m. (as needed)
