City of Rochester Roc Holiday Village

Santa Returns to Downtown ROC 

The City of Rochester Roc Holiday Village is a holiday market at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park that is open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in December until Christmas. At the village, you can visit Santa, shop for gifts from local artisans and vendors, eat, drink, ice skate, and much more! Nostalgic items to remind you of Santa's visits to Midtown Plaza, such as a monorail car, are on display. 

FREE holiday fun!

Admission is free, visits with Santa are free, and ice skating and skate rentals are also free!
