Roller Disco returns with new downtown Rochester location

(ABC 6 News) – Roller Disco is back for another year, however the event is moving to a new downtown Rochester location.

The second annual event presented by the Rochester Downtown Alliance (RDA), will be held on the 300 block of Broadway Avenue South within the roadway.

The event will be Friday, October 7 from 4 to 10:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 8 from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Roller Disco will feature an outdoor roller rink, DJ entertainment, free skate rentals, and more.

This year, RDA hopes to work with Roller Disco-adjacent downtown businesses to create pop-up vendor markets during the event.

“The RDA is thrilled to be highlighting a new area of downtown by bringing Roller Disco to Broadway. We are truly grateful for the support of our neighbors and City teammates who helped us think creatively to execute this project,” said Holly Masek, RDA executive director. “We look forward to bringing this joyful event back to downtown.”

In 2021, the inaugural Roller Disco was held in Peace Plaza.

RDA staff took into consideration feedback from last year’s attendees, who said they wanted more room to skate, when deciding the event’s location this year.
