Fairport Canal Days 2022
Fairport Canal Days
Fairport Canal Days is one of the most popular arts festivals in the Northeast, attracting close to 200,000 visitors on the first weekend of June every year. The festival features over 200 artisans, as well as a variety of music venues, food items, and booths by Fairport Perinton Merchants Association members who sponsor the event. The Canal Days festival began in the mid 1970s, growing exponentially over the years, but always remaining a family-friendly event with something for everyone.
 
Located on the historic Erie Canal, Fairport is a village filled with charm and character. Having received its name in the early 1800’s from a traveler who declared it a “fair port”, it remains a showcase stop for boaters to this day. Fairport’s “front porch friendly” streets echo its past with beautiful Victorian homes and historic buildings, blended with modern facilities and parks.
 
The first word that comes to mind for many when describing Fairport is “community”. Fairport Canal Days is the epitome of this word, a volunteer run event that welcomes you to be part of our community.

MONTROSE TRIO

Thursday, June 9, 2022: Montrose Trio
Smith Opera House, 7:30 pm
Jon Kimura Parker, piano; Martin Beaver, violin; Clive Greensmith, cello

 

Formed in 2013, the Montrose Trio is a collaboration stemming from a long and fruitful relationship between pianist Jon Kimura Parker and the now-disbanded Tokyo String Quartet. Mr. Parker was the quartet’s final guest pianist, and a backstage conversation with first violinist Martin Beaver and cellist Clive Greensmith led to the Montrose Trio’s creation. The Trio quickly established a reputation for performances of the highest distinction– “absolutely top-notch music-making, as fine as one could ever expect to hear.” (The Washington Post)


FRANZ SCHUBERT: Piano Trio No. 1 in B-Flat Major, D. 898
FELIX MENDELSSOHN: Piano Trio No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 66

Smith Opera House, 7:30 pm
Geoffrey Herd, Grace Park, violin; Ettore Cause, viola; Hannah Collins, Clive Greensmith, cello; Jon Kimura Parker, piano

 

Jon Kimura Parker and Clive Greensmith join GMF musicians Ettore Causa, Hannah Collins, and Geoffrey Herd to explore trends that shaped American music and culture.

Antonin Dvořák’s own incorporation of Bohemian folk music (exemplified in his Piano Quartet in E-flat Major) serves as an example for American composers in search of a national sound.

WILLIAM GRANT STILL: Danzas de Panama

Honoring Juneteenth

Celebrating Freedom’s Ring as we honor Juneteenth on Saturday, June 18! 

Join us as we Honor Juneteenth, considered the oldest celebration of the end of enslavement in the United States – and an official state holiday here in New York! We will spotlight the events, experiences, and people fundamental to our collective understanding and appreciation of freedom. The holiday is inspired by events that occurred on June 19, 1865, when Union troops brought the message of emancipation and the end of the Civil War to over 250,000 enslaved persons in Texas – more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. These messengers of freedom were met with shock and jubilation.

The North Shore Lakefront Tour
The North Shore Lakefront Tour

Have a taste for travel? The Finger Lakes Region is a vast area beckoning the adventurous traveler to be explored and enjoyed!  With (11) Finger Lakes to choose from in upstate New York, it only seemed fitting to feature a distinctive old/new lakefront area tour of the 4th largest of those Finger Lakes: scenic and panoramic Canandaigua Lake.

Considered one of the most beautiful spots in the United States, the rolling hills, coupled with nature’s own majestic splendor, it’s been deemed the “Gem of the Finger Lakes.” This awe-worthy experience includes a delectable farm to table lunch, a tour of NY Kitchen, historical facts, and lakefront history all sprinkled into one leisurely, fun-filled afternoon!

Mennonite Horse & Carriage
NOT Your Typical Upstate NY Mennonite & Amish Tour

Many Amish & Mennonite families began purchasing farmland throughout the state of New York making the state one of the fastest-growing Amish and Mennonite populations in the country. The combined population between these (2) groups is approximately 25,000. Penn Yan, NY where, many of them have settled, lies at the north end of the east branch of Keuka Lake.

Our excursion begins just outside of the village of Penn Yan which originally was said to have been contrived from the first syllables of “Pennsylvania” and “Yankee”. These early settlers were from Pennsylvania and the New England area with the latter being known as Yankees.

Offered every Tuesday beginning in May and running through the end of October, this (4.5) hour tour is designed specifically to encourage each guest to participate fully. 

Get ready to…

♦ Journey back to an uncomplicated time
♦ Enjoy the region’s quintessential excursion
