In 1956, the first Clothesline Festival really did have artwork and paintings hung from clotheslines (photo left from 1963). At that time, there were just a handful of local artists, but the camaraderie of the Festival is legendary.

Today, this Rochester institution continues to grow and evolve and has become MAGs largest fundraiser. Its now the place to experience all-day live entertainment, sample food from some of Rochesters favorite vendors, enjoy free family art activities, visit the museum (included in Clothesline admission(!) a $14 value), and of course, browse and buy original work by 400+ New York state artists throughout the grounds.

Each year sees the addition of more festivals, but Clothesline remains a favorite with visitors and artists alike. In recent years, it has earned five Best of Rochester awards from City Newspaper readers. And because the Gallery charges admission and screens the work of the exhibitors, serious shoppers are more in evidence than at other festivals.
