Taste of Syracuse Returns for 25th Year
A local event is celebrating a milestone this year.
The 25th Taste of Syracuse will take place on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3 from 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and will once again feature $2 samples from local food vendors. More than 26 bands are also scheduled to perform (the Spin Doctors are the headliner). Admission for the event is free.
“It’s hard to believe that we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Taste of Syracuse,” said Carrie Wojtaszek, Galaxy Media chief operating officer. “Time sure flies when you’re having fun. We stand by our message that no matter what you’re looking for, musically or food-wise, we truly can say we’ve got it at the Taste of Syracuse! We’re also thrilled to be raising awareness and funds for both PEACE Inc. Big Brothers Big Sisters and Sleep in Heavenly Peace. We’d like to thank The Summit Federal Credit Union and Tops Friendly Markets for their support. With help from our sponsors, we’re able to showcase this amazing event to the CNY community!”
