The Potato Festival is held annually in Wayland, New York approximately 45 miles south of Rochester  and we celebrate the history of potato farming in our region. This year marks the 31st continuous year of the Wayland Potato Festival.  The Wayland Fire & Ambulance Department took over managing the festival seven years ago, with the hopes of keeping the event alive. It is done totally by members of the department and area citizens  volunteering their time to make the festival possible.  So come on over, down, up, or from wherever you are on those days enjoy some fun, food and friends.  You will have a great time!!  

 

Every year seems to get better and better.  Even with the economy

 

 the way it is, there were as many vendors as the year before, approx. 75.  We had thousands of visitors and many new activities. This year, we hope to far exceed those numbers and are working hard to increase the number of activities and entertainment so that all family members can enjoy and be part of  the Wayland Potato Festival.
