Rochester Park Avenue Festival
ROCHESTER’S MOST DAZZLING SUMMER FESTIVAL!
Renowned for its architecture, culture, and hip urban atmosphere, the Park Avenue neighborhood is transformed for one weekend each year into a one-of-a-kind shopping mecca, filled with original creations from more than 350 artists, craftspeople and exhibitors from the U.S. and Canada.
You won’t want to miss a single thing for the festival’s entire “miracle mile and a quarter!” The Park Ave Summer Art Fest stretches a full 1¼ miles from Alexander Street at its west end to Culver Road at the east. Exhibitors set up from curb to sidewalk, and Park Avenue itself closes to vehicular traffic, filling from end to end with festival-goers. There’s plenty of room for viewing, socializing, eating, and—of course—shopping from one end of the festival to the other.
Sunday, August 4, 2019 4pm FREE!

What Folks Said
"Answer the Muse is a musical group that combines yoga, spirituality, movement and marvelous, unique music into a dizzying blend of an experience. Every time I see them, I come away energized and happy, positive about life and ready to greet whatever comes my way."
"Answer the Muse is not only a collective of extraordinarily talented musicians and singer/songwriters, but also engaging, transformative performance art. More than a concert, ATM is a transcendent experience."
"ANSWER THE MUSE……. A musical ensemble driven by organic originality, creativity and talent that centers itself on peaceful healing and harmony. To me, this is “YOGANIC” entertainment at its finest. RA MA DA SA. Move, dance, and sing along!"
"A multi-talented soul centered musical experience that takes you on a personal musical journey refreshing your mind, body and spirit through music, movement and breath. "
"Answer the Muse will leave you spiritually transformed and musically uplifted."
"Your concerts are very welcoming. I always feel like you are happy to see each one of us. And of course the music is joyful, earthy, vibrant."
Answer the Muse is a group of dedicated professional musical artists with relatable, inclusive, universally themed mainly original material that dovetails beautifully with going right into Kundalini mantra Kriya/ chanting. They combine performance art. The most striking element is their authenticity. Really powerful stuff.
Dr. Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa
Their songs soothe ears abused by too much angry shouting and calm nerves frayed by life's mendacity. They walk it like they talk it. Sincerely. They sing well, play their instruments well and play together well, frequently using acoustic sounds. Support independent music by giving a few of your hard-earned shekels to Answer the Muse! They're doing their thing the right way.
