In addition to the buttons, Rochesterfest organizers are selling a limited edition 35th anniversary poster that features all of the button designs from the past 35 years. The posters can be purchased for five dollars at all four Rochester Hy-Vee Food Store locations and at the Rochesterfest Info Booth at Soldiers Field Park during the event.

Rochesterfest will be held at Soldiers Field Park from June 17 through the 25th and the theme this year is “Rochesterfest: 35 Years of Summer Fun.”

Retiring Rochester City Administrator Stevan Kvenvold will serve as the Grand Marshal of the Rochesterfest Grand Parade, which has been moved to a new day and time this year.
