To honor our 125th Anniversary, we’re celebrating our partners for their support not only for the festival, but also for the good they do in our community. We’re calling our recognition of these sponsors Partners with a Purpose. When local businesses support the festival, they’re helping this great community asset thrive –– in turn, our visitors support them, which makes it possible for those businesses to give back to our community.It’s a cycle of giving that we’re proud to champion.
With a donation of any amount to Partners with a Purpose, festival visitors will receive a flower to add to the giant archway ‘garden’ in the Giving Garden and have an opportunity to capture the moment with a selfie and or family photo. Representatives from participating charities will also be on location throughout the festival to share more about their respective organizations.
By the end of the 10-day festival, the Giving Garden will be full of flowers gifted by our community – putting the giving spirit of Rochester on display for all to see.
