In the Horticulture Building at the New York State Fairgrounds, the "Taste NY" Harvest Fest offers samples from 60 food and drink vendors, from across the state.
Visitors can try chocolate treats, barbeque bits, cheese curds, olives, sausage, maple syrup, pumpkin ravioli, and a swish of vodka in one sweep.
A list of vendors can be found on www.tastenyharvestfest.com for visitors who'd like to try the samples on Sunday from Noon-5:00 p.m. The event opened on Saturday. Tickets cost $20 at the door. People with a stub from Saturday's SU football game can get $5 off.
Taste NY is part of Governor Cuomo's $60 million tourism campaign, highlighting New York's food and beverage products.
Just as the event at the fairgrounds ends on Saturday night, Most Holy Rosary Parish Center is launching their Taste of Strathmore fundraiser.
The parish is celebrating 100 years in the Strathmore neighborhood of Syracuse. Their food sampling event is the primary annual fundraiser for Most Holy Rosary School.
This year, organizers are promising a bigger "Restaurant Row", with samples from 15 eateries.
Taste of Strathmore will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the parish center on 1031 Bellevue Avenue, Syracuse. The cost is $20 at the door.
Visitors will have access to a cash bar and live music by the John Spillett Jazz Duo featuring Joe Riposo.
