Considering Moving to Fairport?
The Village of Fairport is located on the historic Erie Canal within the Town of Perinton and for the more than 6,000 residents and over 300 business owners, the Village of Fairport provides a quality of life and opportunity for commerce that’s unmatched by many communities of our size.
From its earliest days, the presence of the waterway helped transform what had once been known as Perrinsville into a very "fair port” for an overnight stay by passing travelers. The railroad came to Fairport in 1853 making this growing community one of the leading centers of transportation and industry of its time in all of Upstate New York.
Today, the great packet boats and barges of an earlier era have been replaced by recreational boaters, canoes, kayaks, and tour boats, while the old towpath serves the leisure time interests of bikers, joggers, and walkers alike.
With its quiet, tree lined streets, specialty shopping, and front porch friendliness, the Village of Fairport offers contemporary living at its very best. Here, our residents have access to one of the premiere public education systems in the state - not to mention a village library, historical museum, and lush canalside parks.
Boaters Paradise: modern overnight docking facilities in the heart of the Village’s rustic business district accommodate more than 30 boats, featuring water and electric services, well-maintained restrooms and showers, and pump-out stations. Helpful dockmasters are on duty during the boating season.
Canal Days Festival: each June Fairport’s Canal Days attracts more than 400 arts and crafts exhibitors from the United States and tens of thousands of visitors to one of the most anticipated festivals of its kind.

The Lollypop Farm campus rests on 134 acres outside of Fairport, New York, in the Town of Perinton. What was originally farmland was donated to the Humane Society by Mr. Hiram Marks in 1964 in his will. We encourage people of all ages to visit the Main Campus, including the indoor shelter and our outdoor Farm Yard Petting Area and Walk, which offer educational displays about the many different animals for whom we care. *courtesy Lollypop Farm website*
