NOTA Events


The Neighborhood

NOTA is Rochester’s arts district, a diverse cultural hub that attracts creative people and ideas.

From impressive sculptures to imprinted sidewalks, quirky benches to inspired bus stops, mosaic lamp posts to pocket gardens, music to theater, literature to movies, and historic architecture to contemporary style, it’s a neighborhood designed as a living art experience.

Characterized by both art and the adaptive reuse of existing space, NOTA is home to many of the city’s cultural institutions, as well as a variety of unique studios, shops, restaurants, and services supported by the Business Association (NOTABA).

Walk anywhere in NOTA and you’ll discover many choices for urban living, from stately Victorians to new construction full of modern amenities, and modest rental units to luxury lofts.
