25th Annual Clarissa Street Reunion

August 19, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

25th Clarissa Street Reunion - Rochester, NY

Clarissa Street Legacy Presents The 25th Annual Clarissa Street Reunion

The Clarissa Street Legacy holds an annual Reunion in one of the most culturally rich neighborhoods of Rochester. The event celebrates a neighborhood known for producing renowned jazz musicians in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Clarissa Street, located in the southwest quadrant of Rochester and the old 3rd Ward, was a true melting pot that brought together people of Black, Italian, Irish, and Jewish descent. Streets were made of cobblestone, and trolley cars were a familiar sight. The Clarissa Street Reunion, held annually since 1996, is a wonderful celebration of the memories and the relationships that were formed in the neighborhood.

Festival: 10:00am – 8:00pm
