One-Day Event on Sunday, September 22th

This year marks the 28th anniversary for the Westcott Street Cultural Festival! This amazing, one- day neighborhood event embraces diversity and fosters a sense of community in the Westcott neighborhood.   More than 8,000 people gather to enjoy music and dance at the seven stages, visit the arts & crafts booths and learn about local not-for profit agencies. Festivities start with a kickoff parade at noon and continue until 6:30 PM. Community service hours range from 10:30am-8pm.

We need you!  The success of this event is highly dependent on volunteers.  Last year more than one hundred students from Syracuse University volunteered at the Fair. Volunteer assignments include set-up and take-down of chairs and tables, monitoring street barricades, facilitating activities with kids and managing the stages. Sign up solo, with a friend, or even as a group!

If you would like to be an integral part of this volunteer effort, the process is simple. Just go to our Community Relations webpage, fill out the form for the Westcott Street Cultural Fair and submit.  You will receive an email in the coming weeks with your assignment based on your request.

For more information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give our office a call or send us an email.  We can be reached at and 315-443-5593.
