Frequently Asked Questions

 

Volunteer Information for 2021

Thank you all for stepping up to volunteer for the Festival this year.  Your commitment to supporting the Golisano Children’s Hospital is inspiring.

We are looking forward to a successful and safe event and are modifying our operations and guidelines in this second pandemic year.  Among the changes: 

ALL 2021 VOLUNTEERS MUST BE VACCINATED.  

Please snap a photo of your vaccination card or a screenshot of the Excelsior pass and email it to us BEFORE AUG. 16.  To protect your personal information, please DO NOT REPLY ALL.

If you have not gotten the shot or do not provide confirmation of your vaccination by Aug. 16, unfortunately, we cannot allow you to volunteer this year. 

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR VACCINE RECORD ON FILE IN ADVANCE OF THE FESTIVAL.  WE WILL NOT ADDRESS VACCINATION STATUS AT THE VOLUNTEER CHECK-IN AREA.

We look forward to hearing from all of you quickly, so we can focus on a great 2021 event!

Food & Beverages

Can I bring a cooler with food/beverages to the festival?
Food and beverages will be provided at festival friendly rates that will be the most competitive of any music festival that you will attend this year! Additionally, there are several Fairport Restaurants in the area for your choosing. No coolers, please.
Is the food included in the admission price?
No, it is not.  Your admission price is a donation to the event that gets you access to all band stage (3) areas. All proceeds from this event are donated to Golisano Children’s Hospital. Food and beverages (water, soda, beer, wine) will be for sale at very reasonable prices.

KIds Activities - Cancelled for 2021 

Please see our COVID Poilicy Statement for the 2021 Fairport Music Festival.  


Miscellaneous

Can I bring a lawn chair or blanket?
The festival band areas are located in parking lot-type areas with hard macadam surfaces. In the past, organizers have placed grass turf over parts of those surfaces! Blankets and chairs are fine. Tables and chairs will also be provided for your convenience.

Parking

Where do I park?
First preferred are the two large lots on the south side of the Canal across from the Music Festival, but free parking is available at many public parking lots throughout the Village of Fairport as well.  Signs will be posted showing those areas. Please respect private property and do not block any areas with your vehicle.

Shuttle Service

There is FREE shuttle parking from 4pm - 11:45pm on Friday, 11am - 11:30pm on Saturday.

Pick up/Parking at Minerva DeLand School Parking Lot (140 Hulburt Rd., Fairport)

Drop off/Return at Corner of Liftbridge and Main St.


Out of Town Visitors

I am from out of the area - is there a place I can stay?
Woodcliff Hotel and Spa has a limited block of rooms reserved for Fairport Music Festival guests at a discounted rate. Standard $189/night rooms at Woodcliff Hotel and Spa will be made available to a limited number of FMF guests at a rate of $133/night as Woodcliff Hotel and Spa becomes the official hotel for FMF guests. Their phone is 585-381-4000. Guests should simply request the Fairport Music Festival rate. Please click here for hotel details.

Festival Hours

Friday: 5:00-10:00pm, Saturday 11:30am - 10:00pm.

Rain Date

Will there be a “rain date” in case of inclement weather?
No. Each band stage will be covered, and each stage area will have covered tents to protect all from rain. The show will go on with the fun of any rain added. Hey, it rained at Woodstock didn’t it?
 

Pets

Can I bring my dog?
While we are sure that your pets are very well behaved, crowd activity and noise levels may bother the animals, so we prefer that you leave them home. NO pets allowed.

PLEASE NOTE:

Any backpacks, large purses or bags or other carry-in devices are subject to inspection before entry to the festival. If you see any suspicious packages, please report them to security immediately.
