Inside Downtown Tour Tickets

$24.00$44.00

This year’s Inside Downtown Tour will take place around East Avenue & Alexander Street in Rochester’s East End, on Friday, September 27 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, and on Saturday, September 28th from 11 am to 4 pm. The tour is self-guided, allowing tour-goers to visit sites in any order they would like at any time during the event that they would like, with the same sites open on both days. Ticket-holders can tour either or both days, but are allowed only one entry to each tour site over the two days. Ticket-holders may also elect to attend an after-party at 80W restaurant immediately after the tour closes on Saturday, for an additional fee.

Advance sale tickets are $24 for members, $29 for non-members; attending tour after-party incurs additional $15 fee. Note that tickets will not be available for in-person purchase or pickup at The Landmark Society’s offices this year due to ongoing construction: those purchasing tickets online can elect to either have their tickets mailed (expect arrival after September 10th) or plan to pick them up at tour headquarters (350 East Avenue) on the days of the tour.
