CNY Events For A Jazzy Weekend

Syracuse Jazz Fest cranks up the volume for another year, plus plenty of other CNY events and festivities roll into town.

Jazz Fest weekend in Syracuse has arrived! This year the three-day music, film and art exhibition festival turns 35 and continues to jump, jive and wail at Onondaga Community College. For those not so musically minded, there are plenty of other CNY events to make your weekend livelier.

Get a heavy dose of Greek culture at St. Sophia’s; Pride Week kicks off with a prom in the SKY; jazz songstress Diana Krall takes the stage in Canandiagua a week before her husband Elvis Costello does; and the Crunch continue to play for the Calder Cup. However, that is just a small sample of what is going on in the region.

Have a great weekend!
