Like many small towns, Fairport finds any reason to celebrate its charming history, and one of the biggest and most popular events the city puts on happens every weekend at the beginning of summer. The Fairport Canal Days is a huge festival that brings in music, food, games, and more to celebrate this beautiful little stretch of river and the city that was founded on its shore. You can find performers, such as the Perinton Concert Band, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, and even Scottish bagpipers playing the night away as you peruse the craft stalls and nosh on some local fare.
Fitness First in Fair
It may get pretty nippy here in the winter, but once summer rolls in, people come out in droves in their yoga pants and running shoes to enjoy the weather and shed those holiday pounds. The best place to get fit and enjoy the view while you are at it is definitely the Erie Canal towpath. This is a small section of a much longer pathway that connects all the little towns and villages along the Erie River. It is a mixture of gravel and pavement, and a great way to run off those sweet treats and indulgences from the holidays.
