As you may have heard on social media, print, or on television, there were at least two acts of arson this week in our North Winton Village neighborhood. Not only was this arson, this was also a hate crime. At least two Gay Pride Flags have been burned while still attached to neighbors’ homes. Confirmed are one on Atlantic Avenue and one on Marion Street.
As a neighborhood, we will not tolerate hateful acts towards our fellow neighbors. We will also not tolerate any kind of property crime in our area. North Winton Village has had a proud history of supporting and looking out for one another in times of need. We are all neighbors, and many of us are also friends. That is what makes us strong and the best neighborhood in Rochester — not because we always agree, but because we all want the best for our neighborhood and our neighbors. There have been many neighbors and friends who have reached out asking what they can do or how they can help. If you have a flag or choose to purchase one, display it and show we stand united against hate and crime in our neighborhood.
There will be an event this Saturday — organized by our neighbors for our neighbors — to show their support. All are welcome to attend.

Join us for a day full of fun as we wrap up summer with our annual arts festival. The tenth North Winton Village Festival of the Arts will take place Saturday, September 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Linear Garden between East Main St. (next to Summit Federal Credit Union) and Mayfield St. (near the Winfield Grill). Here are ten tips to help make it an enjoyable experience for you, your family, and friends.
1. Need a little extra cash for that one-of-a-kind craft? ATMs are available at Summit Federal Credit Union by the Linear Garden arch, and at ESL Federal Credit Union across East Main St.
2. Dress for a warm day, but bring an umbrella: The weather calls for a high temperature near 80 with occasional showers.
3. Festival parking is available on-street and in the plaza across East Main St. (except for designated spaces). Or, you can always walk (see umbrella note above).
4. Jimmy Highsmith, Jr. and Fatima are the headlining musicians again this year. If you saw them last year, you’ll know why we’re so glad to have them back.
5. Will there be food? Yes, there will be food. And there are a few restaurants and bars nearby in case you didn’t know….
6. Take your time and browse. You won’t need to stress about crowds and traffic at our little festival.
7. Bring your kids. There will be a bounce house and music all day long. Also, the Winton Branch Library is just a block from the festival and is open from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
8. You can help make next year’s arts festival happen. The festival is made possible by many generous businesses and individuals. Take a look at our poster and let them know you appreciate their support.
9. Follow the North Winton Village Association Facebook page for updates, photos, and other neighborhood news.
10. Let us know what you like about the festival and what we could do better. Email your feedback to info(at-symbol)northwinton.org.
Bonus Tip: If you share pictures of the festival on social media, be sure to tag our Facebook page, @northwinton on Twitter, and @northwintonvillage on Instagram, and/or use the tag #nwvfestival.*
