22nd Annual Clarissa Street Reunion



Rochester, New York – The 22nd Annual Clarissa Street Reunion will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Since 1996 the annual reunion has drawn together thousands of people who share a connection to the rich musical and cultural history of the Clarissa Street neighborhood.

Corn Hill, the oldest residential neighborhood in Rochester, was once known as the Third Ward. It is a showplace of Rochester’s past and most historic streets. Originally named Caledonia Avenue by Corn Hill’s early settlers, the southern portion of the street was named “Clarissa” in 1844; by 1930 all of Caledonia Avenue had been renamed Clarissa Street. The first reunion was held on Saturday, August 24, 1996 and attracted more than 10,000 people. Renowned jazz organist, Brother Jack McDuff, was the reunion’s first headliner performer. Since 1996, the Clarissa Street Reunion has become one of Rochester’s most popular events.
