Get a Taste of Syracuse and More This Weekend

The first weekend of June features Taste of Syracuse and welcomes warmer weather, live music, family friendly festivals, fundraisers and much more.

Say hello to June! Get more than just a taste of Syracuse this weekend with the food frenzy event and more CNY fun in and around the area.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd headlines the two-day festival, plus Chris Thomas King and Selwyn Birchwood also roll into town and add to the blues-heavy soundtrack. Paige’s Butterfly Run flutters in for another year and Woofstock howls again in the Finger Lakes. Check out the small town America festivities in Marcellus and the vibrant art and artisans behind the work in Westcott. Plus, there is so much more, like bacon and bourbon.

Have a great weekend!
