The Greater Canandaigua Civic Center on 250 North Bloomfield Road is a short 30 minute drive south east from Rochester. The facility is an ice rink from fall through spring and converts to a multi-purpose arena from May through September. It has hosted trade shows, parties, concerts and more "without ice." It offers 17,000 square feet of exhibition space, easy access to the main floor that can be driven on, several meeting rooms and a snack bar and grill. Read more about it in their promotional brochure here.

The Town of Canandaigua is in the heart of the resort Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. It is 5 miles south of the NY State Thruway (I-90) and on the north end of Canandaigua Lake. It is known as the Wine Trail for the many wineries large and small that blanket the area. Outdoor activities include hiking, camping, fishing and all sorts of water activities on and around the lake. Historical Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion State Park is worth a visit.

    Click to read this and other Canandaigua area hotel reviews.
  • Alternative Canandaigua hotel details are listed as a convenience for show-goers with approximate nightly room rates with early booking. Add 10% tax to all prices. Many offer AAA and AARP discounts. Also check other Internet sites for possible discounts at these hotels. ROPEX is being held during the two-week Rochester Lilac Festival and graduation weekend for the Rochester Institute of Technology. Please make hotel reservations as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Click the blue astrisk to visit their web site.

    Note: State Route 5 & 20 is known as Eastern Blvd.
