2017 Rochesterfest dates announced


ROCHESTER, Minn. – “Rochesterfest: 35 Years of Summer Fun!” is officially scheduled for June 17-25 of 2017 at Soldiers Field Park.

The chairman this year is Wayne Harvey, who retired earlier this year after working 36 years at IBM. He has served as a vendor and information booth co-chair for Rochesterfest for the past decade.

This year’s parade is set for 2 p.m. June 24, using the same route as this past year. By moving the parade from Friday to Saturday, organizers hope to relieve some of the rush hour congestion and parking challenges while also allowing more time and space for parade staging and preparation.
