Clothesline Festival At The MAG This Weekend

Despite some wet weather, a lot of people are still expected at this weekend's M&T Bank Clothesline Festival at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester. The event on the grounds of the Memorial Art Gallery goes on rain or shine.

It's the 59th year for the event which features fine art and crafts by more than 400 artists. Clothesline is the MAG's biggest fundraiser, with all artists' entry fees and public admission fees going directly into the gallery's operating budget.  

The festival runs from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  on Saturday and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will be free shuttle buses from Gleason Works and the East End garage.

WXXI is one of the community partners for the event.  Classical 91.5’s Julia Figueras and Marianne Carberry will be broadcasting live from the festival on Saturday from Noon to 3:00 p.m.

Randy Gorbman is WXXI's director of news and public affairs. Randy manages the day-to-day operations of WXXI News on radio, television, and online.
