This year's Fairport Canal Days is coming next Friday-Sunday, June 5-7. The music at FCD has continued to skew toward jazz and featuring local jazz artists. This year's lineup at almost 90% jazz, which includes Saturday night headliner Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses who will be playing the music of his father and original compositions.
Over 40 bands will perform next weekend, showing FCD's commitment to featuring local talent—from school bands to emerging local artists and groups, to the very best world-class professionals who call the Rochester area home and those hailing from beyond our area. The festival also has added a new stage at the Fairport Brewing Co (at Four Corners). As always, FCD is an all volunteer, family-friendly, non-profit festival where all proceeds remain within the community.
