The Westcott Street Cultural Fair that is, Sunday, 9/26 noon to 6:30pm. Each year Honors students volunteer at this fun event just a few blocks east of campus. Here’s what a few had to say:
“As a senior,” said Siying Wang, “this was my last Westcott fair. It has been fun to be a performer in the parade, a volunteer at the fair and also a fair goer. I really appreciate the community’s effort in organizing this special event every year. It makes me feel more involved in the community.”
Jonathan Aziz didn’t discover the fair until his senior year and felt “it was great to see the community brought together, sharing their talents, interests, and company. I hope to be a part of similar community gatherings in the future.”
If you would like to be an integral part of this volunteer effort, the process is simple.

Westscott Street hosts its annual cultural fair and parade. “The Westcott Street Cultural Fair is an annual, one-day celebration of the diversity and uniqueness of the Westcott neighborhood through its culture: visual and performing arts, food, service organizations and activities geared to families and Syracuse and LeMoyne students returning to the neighborhood. The fair attracts more than 8,000 people annually to the Westcott Business District in mid-September for a day filled with great sounds, sights, tastes and more.”
