Once Upon a Playhouse 2023 has some exciting changes! This year our Playhouses will be on display all summer long!

Once Upon a Playhouse 2023 will be at Thursdays Downtown all summer! Look for us in the Family Nook on the Peace Plaza where this year's playhouses will be on display and open for fun.

We will also be at Rochesterfest during Family Fun Nights June 21 and 22.

Once Upon a Playhouse 2023, in partnership with the Rochester Area Builders, raises funds to support the Mental Health services at Family Service Rochester. In 2022, our Mental Health professionals provided 17,000 hours of service to over 1,100 clients in outpatient, community-based, family-based, and school-based settings.

You can support our Mental Health services by purchasing raffle tickets to win a one of this year's playhouses!
  • Raffle tickets are $20 each or 3 for $50 or 7 for $100.
  • Raffle tickets can be purchased at both of our Family Service Rochester locations (see the bottom of the page for locations) or at our Once Upon a Playhouse 2023 displays at Thursdays Downtown and Rochesterfest.
  • Winning raffle tickets will be drawn August 17, 2023. You do not need to be present to win.

Of course, you can always support our Mental Health services with a donation.
