SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — For the first time on in Syracuse, the Salt City Summer Fest will kick off on July 23. It will be a seven-week series of street entertainment across downtown Syracuse that will last until September 11.
Local artists will perform along the sidewalks of downtown during peak weekend times of 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., as well as during lunch and dining hours at different places downtown on other days of the week.
For the first weekend starting on July 23, organizers say performances will cover virtually every downtown sidewalk dining area with music of all kinds. The roving entertainment is designed to fill the gap of lost large-scale festivals, and help support the local performing arts community.
