Park Board votes to move Rochesterfest to Soldiers Field
(THE MED CITY BEAT) - The Rochester Park Board unanimously voted Tuesday to move Rochesterfest to Soldiers Field.
The annual festival is being forced to move from its previous spot in front of the Mayo Civic Center because of an upcoming renovation project.
The Post-Bulletin reports vendors would set up on the track area, with a dining canopy in the track's grassy spots and a stage at the track's north end. The baseball and softball diamonds would also be used for activities.
The festival stills need to get sound permits and some funds from the city council for water and electrical upgrades before the move is finalized. The new location would be on a year-to-year trial basis.
