Octoberfest is the big party in September, ROCtoberfest is a party, 5K and fundraising opportunity for local charities in October. In previous years the Photo Finish 5K hosted this style fundraising, in their decision to no longer host the event we want to keep that legacy and keep the fundraising going plus celebrate Rochester!
Grab your running shoes and lederhosen and celebrate the German way with our first ever ROCtoberfest 5K! Join us at Genesee Valley Park for a fun festival kicked off by the 5K run/walk that also will serve as a fundraising event for local charities. Let's celebrate Rochester and all the charities in it. After the race ends the party starts! Food trucks, beer garden, live music, and more! If you have friends or family who would prefer to skip the race, but come for the festival, we will have tickets available for that as well! Register today to join the ROCtoberfest fun!! Enjoy Live Music, Beer Garden and Helping Raise Money for Local Rochester Charities!
