Late July Events in CNY

Find out what’s hot for an even hotter weekend around Syracuse, and fit in as much as you can.

There are plenty of events in CNY taking place this weekend. It’s another weekend where banking on cell phone games as an excuse to get out is unacceptable. Check out outdoor films and festivals, barn sales and sidewalk sales, staged and spontaneous performances and there are shining musical acts and stars galore. The only problem is finding the time to fit everything in.

I don’t know about you, but it feels nice having many weekends in July. The most can be made of a central New York summer. Unknowingly, the season is flying by.

Enjoy yourselves!
