Wedgestock was a free, annual festival put together by the South Wedge Planning Committee featuring music, art, food, and fun. In 2010 the event moved from Highland Park to South Avenue, allowing for a major expansion of the festival (previously held at the Highland Bowl). The event was designed to showcase the spirit and talent of the South Wedge, one of the most ascendant and active regions in Rochester with a well-known and well-deserved reputation for fun.
Music was a primary focus at this event, with some of Rochester's most creative and successful acts performing. In addition, it featured an innovative mix of electronic music integrated by several DJs.
The South Wedge is a very pet-friendly neighborhood; in keeping with this attitude, the event featured a Pet Parade with a variety of prizes, and pets were more than welcome at the festival as a whole.
Unfortunately, Wedgestock proved to be a victim of its own success. Putting on such a large festival drained a huge amount of the SWPC's resources to the extent that it was too risky as a fundraiser. Alas, the final Wedgestock was held in 2013.
