Artists from across the United States are invited to apply for spaces at the 2020 M&T Bank Clothesline Festival, a juried fine arts festival held on the grounds of the Memorial Art Gallery (MAG). Now in its 64th year, the popular event showcasing more than 400 artists will take place Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 13.


Rochester’s largest and longest-running fine arts festival continues to evolve. Originating as a New York State only artist festival, Clothesline has expanded in recent years to welcome artists from across the country. It’s now the place to experience all-day live entertainment, sample food from some of Rochester’s favorite vendors, enjoy free family art activities, visit the museum, and of course, browse and buy original artwork throughout the grounds.

Each year sees the addition of more festivals, but Clothesline remains a favorite with artists. Because MAG charges admission and screens the work of the exhibitors, serious shoppers are more in evidence than at other festivals.

Clothesline remains popular with visitors, too. In recent years, it has earned five “Best of Rochester” awards from City Newspaper readers.  LEARN MORE clothesline.rochester.edu
