Spokes & Ink brings together a community of bike lovers, artists, musicians and beer drinkers at the 4th annual Monroe Avenue festival. Those who prefer to travel on two wheels will enjoy the bike themed poster show and sale. Each print is produced by one of the dozens of local graphic artists, photographers, or letterpress artists and sells for $20. There will be a trick bike demonstration by the Rochester Action Sports Park and the festival will also host the Hieronymus Bogs, The Pickpockets, and the Fevertones for free concerts from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
LIVE on the Monroe Theater Lawn will also have an outdoor venue set up at the corner of Amherst Street with live concerts featuring The Trinidad and Tobago Steel band, Stone Soup, and the Mounafanyi Percussion and Dance Ensemble from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The festival will be held on Saturday, June 7, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monroe Avenue, between Oxford and Rutgers. The Genesee Center for the Arts & Education is at 713 Monroe Avenue. The festival is free and open to the public. For more information visit geneseearts.org/spokesandink.
