Fairport is located on the western portion of the Erie Canal, a few miles east of Rochester. It is known mainly by canallers for two things, first is its lift bridge. Its lift bridge which has each of its 4 corners at different levels and also no two angles of the same degree makes this bridge very unique. Second is its famous Fairport Canal Days festival. It is one of the premier annual Arts and Crafts festivals in the Northeast, attracting nearly a quarter-million visitors each year!

Fairport Canal Days

The Fairport Canal Days is a festival in early June each year that brings nearly a quarter million people into this little town. It includes over 300 artisan booths, featuring ceramics, photos, glass, painting, toys, wood crafts, and much much more!
