Spring, summer and fall are full of activities with many upcoming events and festivals. These events and festivals are usually very popular and draw large crowds. Therefore, if you are interested in attending one, it would be highly recommended to plan ahead. While there are too many to cover them all, what follows is a list of those in close proximity to the 1795 Acorn Inn Bed and Breakfast. Our luxurious accommodations are conveniently located just outside the town of Canandaigua in the country. As a result, you can still have a peaceful stay during this busy time.

I just learned that there is a concert event shuttle available. CMAC, Constellation Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center, has a shuttle from some local restaurants to some concert events. The shuttle will pick you up at various local restaurants. For instance, Macri’s, Simply Crepes, Greenfront or Nolans. And, it will drop you off at the VIP entrance. Parking for the venue is generally simple. However, sometimes there are lines to get into the parking lots and a little bit of a walk to the venue. General parking is around $10 and VIP is about $20.
Most noteworthy and for those that don’t already know, CMAC is a fantastic outdoor amphitheater. It’s a wonderfully small venue with great summer line ups. There are covered seats and lawn seats. As a result, and in my opinion, there is not a bad seat in the house. Well, honestly the lawn is not for me. But it certainly is full most of the time.
The shuttle is not available for all concerts. Therefore, I suggest you check their website for details. https://www.cmacevents.com/cmac-experience/
Currently the shuttle is available for:
June 17 – Elivs Costello
July 2 – Tom Petty
July 23 – Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper
August 18 – Santana
Fortunately I have seen John Legend, Tim Mcgraw, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheerhan, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antelbellum, Peter Frampton and more.
Have a great time.

I don’t know how it could get better than this for a concert venue. And to boot, in New York State’s Finger Lakes and ten minutes from the Inn.
You gotta see this video. Don’t know if this will work as I’ve never posted a video on my blog before. But, if it doesn’t work and you want to see, become a fan of the 1795 Acorn Inn on facebook. I successfully posted the video there. Thanks.
