With the support of businesses and community members, we have been able to enhance the beautification of Fairport Harbor with public plants in the village during summer and provide decorative rain barrels for residents to use and preserve our greatest natural resource, Lake Erie.

We provide public entertainment through our Summer Concert Series and uphold traditions with our Grinch Harbor Holidays. We have given as friends to the Fairport Harbor Library and the Fairport Harbor Marine Museum. We have support the Fairport Harbor Tourism Council with its activities from the Mascarade Magic to Quackeries to the annual Art Show. We also support Band and Athletic Boosters to enrich the arts and culture for youth in our schools.
