Events in downtown Rochester are the perfect venues for family and friends to gather – and the thousands of people in attendance seem to agree!   The downtown Promotions Committee works year round to create exciting events for everyone, from age two to 92.

Our events are made possible by the hard work and dedication of volunteers and the support of our generous sponsors. Current sponsorship opportunities can be found below.  For additional sponsorship opportunities contact the Rochester DDA at 248.656.0060.
