2022 Rochesterfest buttons now on sale

(ABC 6 News) – Tuesday was the annual Rochesterfest button kick-off, and Rochester Mayor Kim Norton purchased the first button of 2022.

This is the 39th anniversary of Rochesterfest.

This year’s winner of the button design contest was Mike Pruett. He says his design featuring a sunrise symbolizes a new beginning after two years of the pandemic.

Pruett has won the button contest two other years in the past and said, "They come up with different themes every year with Rochesterfest. So… you have to think about what would be on a button and placing the wording and all the other information."

This year Rochesterfest is from June 18-25. The buttons cost $5 each and go toward making the event possible.
