Fall Guide 2016 

Seasonal selections

There are the obvious reasons to love fall: changing leaves, Oktoberfest beers and seasonal coffee flavors, Halloween and all of its festivities. But for us, the crisp air signals the beginning to the Rochester artistic seasons.

While we want to celebrate all of the great things about fall in Western New York, City’s annual Fall Guide has taken on an unofficial purpose over the years. We use the special issue as a way to highlight many of the upcoming programs being produced by Rochester arts organizations, from art exhibits and classical music concerts to theater and dance performances.

Below, you’ll find our critics’ picks for stand-out concerts, productions, films, and gallery showings of the 2016-17 season. But of course there is always way more going on than we can highlight in one issue, so we hope you’ll take our suggestions and then build upon them. Like following a thread, Rochester’s rich arts community — encompassing every genre and style — is always worth unraveling to see what speaks to you.

Still, the fall can’t be all about watching others perform. If you’re looking for a little physical activity this season, check out our story on a foam dart league — think “capture the flag” with Nerf guns — that’s catching on in Rochester. And if you’re wanting to take a fall foliage drive into the Finger Lakes, we have a roundup of prime food and drink locations along Keuka and Seneca lakes.

And as always, for up-to-date information, and complete listings for what is going on each week, be sure to check out City Newspaper on stands each Wednesday, or come back to our website every day.
