The Rochester Fringe Festival is held in Downtown Rochester’s East End with a few venues in the Neighborhood of the Arts and extended satellites. Most venues are within walking distance of each other, which allows for one-time parking. The Fringe recommends parking in one of the many surface lots or parking garages located near One Fringe Place (corner of Main & Gibbs Streets Streets). View our festival map for suggested parking locations, or the City of Rochester’s parking information.

The Fringe is a pedestrian and bike-friendly event. One Fringe Place (corner of Main & Gibbs Streets across from Eastman Theatre) is easily accessible from East Avenue and there are many bike racks and loops nearby to lock your bike to. If you’re traveling into the city from the ‘burbs, throw your bike in the car and park in one of the many city side streets off East Avenue and bike in from there. As always, it’s better to be safe than sorry: Lock your bike and wear a helmet.
