Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival

Join us in July 2021 to Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Festival!

The AmeriCU Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival, presented in partnership with the Downtown Committee, is being showcased virtually now! Click here to browse artwork from participating artists. 


Maintaining the health and safety of festival attendees, artists, staff and the Syracuse community is festival organizers’ top priority. Taking into consideration the crowds that the festival draws and the travel involved for out-of-state artists, coupled with current public health guidelines and social-distancing practices, a decision was made to change the traditional format of the show to a virtual presentation. 

We look forward to highlighting the works of artists online through social media this July. Make sure you're following the Facebook page for our virtual event, and checking our Instagram stories regulalry as we provide previews of the works available for purchase online, and opportunities to engage in arts and entertainment activities safely in Downtown Syracuse.

The 50th Anniversary edition of the live festival will be celebrated in July, 2021!

The spectacular three-day showcase of the country's most talented artists, craftspeople and entertainers is centered in Downtown Syracuse. The festival provides opportunities for visitors to experience the vibrancy of Downtown Syracuse through a showcase of visual and performing arts that demonstrate diverse art forms and cultures. The Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival is one of the premier events of ArtsWeek, a partnership among several organizations committed to showcasing and celebrating the arts in our community.

The festival typically features more than 160 artists and crafters representing at least 25 U.S. states and Canada. The event attracts more than 50,000 visitors to shop and browse the art and craft exhibits, and enjoy a wide variety of music, multicultural performances, summer refreshments, and participatory activities.
