Rochesterfest is celebrating 35 years of summer fun, June 17-25, 2017. The mission of this weeklong event is to promote and celebrate the city of Rochester and southeast Minnesota annually by connecting people through a variety of wholesome, entertaining community events.
The kickoff event took place Wednesday, May 10 at City Hall. Rochesterfest Button Chair Kristine Ihrke unveiled the winning design by Wes Duellman, sold the very first button to Mayor Brede and presented the 35th anniversary poster which includes all of the button designs from the past 35 years.
Hy-Vee is proud to be a major sponsor of Rochesterfest by selling the buttons and posters ($5 each) at all four Rochester Hy-Vee locations. You will also find Hy-Vee in the parade on Saturday, June 24 at 2 p.m.
