Rochester Syracuse Area Festivals – New York State

Your festival event guide for the Rochester and Syracuse, New York Area, including the Finger Lakes.

Welcome to a comprehensive festival listing page for the Rochester-Syracuse and Finger Lakes area in New York State, including the counties of Cayuga, Cortland, Onodaga, Ontario, Oswego, Seneca, Schuyler, Tompkins, Wayne, and Yates. Once area festivals are confirmed on the main New York Festival Guide, they are copied over to this page to make it easier to plan your weekend festival adventures. Please keep in mind that you should not see area festivals that have been canceled or have not yet been confirmed.

Another area of New York State with a Festival Schedule Page is the Buffalo Area.

Festivals listed here include music festivals, art festivals, food festivals, town festivals, church festivals, cultural festivals and more, but they do not include craft shows, machinery shows, bazaars, county fairs and some other events.
