Thank You Rochester! Roc Holiday Village 2021 Wraps Up with 14 Days of Festive Fun

Rochester, NYDecember 22, 2021—The third annual City of Rochester Roc Holiday Village presented by Five Star Bank wrapped up 14 days of holiday magic Sunday with a farewell to Santa parade.

Approximately 100,000 people of all ages visited Roc Holiday Village in the heart of downtown Rochester at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Memorial Park.

“We’re grateful and honored by the support of our generous sponsors and the Rochester area community. Our goal was to create a safe and joyful event for the entire community to come out and celebrate the winter season,” said Jenna Knauf, Sean McCarthy, and Kelli Marsh, co-founders and producers of Roc Holiday Village.

“Not knowing what this transitional year would bring, we exceeded our expectations and our wishes of once again welcoming people who enjoy the village and make new holiday traditions with their loved ones came true. From ice skating to holiday shopping in the village, to visiting Santa, and meeting friends in The Lodge, it was wonderful to see that the holiday spirit is still all around us.”

Details on Roc Holiday Village 2022 will be announced next summer.
