Only go there a few times a year for Boat and Car shows but its always a pleasure. Parking in neighboring garage is a breeze and reasonably priced. The sky bridge connection is a welcome bonus.

Nothing remarkable. I have been to a number of events here, and they were okay. Very large crowds will have to watch proceedings on monotors

Enjoyed the venue. Set up was excellent. Easy in and out but parking was kind of far. Validated parking so it was free. Very friendly staff everyone was helpful and courteous.

Located right on Main St. Rochester, this gathering facility holds all kinds of activities from Home and Garden Shows to Car Shows! There is always something to see or do at the Convention Center downtown. Check their website for upcoming events and enjoy the fun by attending!
