This year is the 39th year of the Fairport Canal Days festival, which will feature vendors; artists and entertainment; wine, cheese and chocolate tasting; and live music. Great jazz has been the hallmark of the festival's musical headliners, and this year is no exception, with the Saturday night slot going to swing music legend Louis Prima Jr., with support from Chet Catallo & the Cats.
The festival — which hosts more than 200 artists, numerous food vendors, and live music — will take place Saturday June 6, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 7, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a kickoff chicken barbeque on Friday, June 5, between 4:30 and 9 p.m. The festival will be held in the village of Fairport, right on the Erie Canal, as it has been for the festival's tenure.
