Food trucks will offer $1 samples, and live music will also be available. Picnics at the Park takes the place of Taste of Syracuse, which was cancelled for a second year due to COVID-19.
Two popular events will also return to Central New York this month. From June 10-13, families can stop by the St. Sophia’s Greek Cultural Festival and order a variety of dishes, including Greek salad, gyros, dolmades, and baklava – it will be a drive-thru event for the second straight year. Then, from June 24-26, enjoy music from local and national performers at the (free) New York State Blues Festival.
