March 16, 2023. Rochester, N.Y. – Galaxy Media has announced that Central New York’s biggest food and music festival, The Summit Federal Credit Union Taste of Syracuse, will return for its 25th Anniversary on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3, 2023, in and around Clinton Square from 11:00am to 10:00pm both days. Admission is free. 

Taste of Syracuse is sponsored by The Summit Federal Credit Union and presented by Tops Friendly Markets

Festival-goers will have the chance to sample delicious items from local eateries for only $2. Several new restaurants and vendors will be joining the 2023 festival, and many fan favorites will be returning.  The Taste of Syracuse will feature a new streamlined layout and that will be centralized around Clinton Street.  The festival will expand down to Washington Street and will utilize two new parking lots around that area. 

The Taste of Syracuse will have non-stop music for two days featuring over 26 bands and over 100 local musicians. The Grammy-Award nominated, iconic 90’s alternative band, Spin Doctors, will headline the festival on Saturday night on the Sysco Main Stage.  Additionally, American rock band, Eve 6, will perform on the Washington Stage early evening on Saturday.  The popular youth talent showcase will return to the festival on Saturday from 11:00am-1:30pm. 

The Taste of Syracuse will collect donations for two charitable organizations, PEACE Inc. Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Syracuse Chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace. The Summit, Tops, along with other sponsors and vendors will be working with the festival to raise money for these great charities all weekend long.  All proceeds from activities at The Summit’s tent and the Tops tent will be donated to the charities.  

“The Summit has been the title sponsor of the Taste of Syracuse since 2017. As a local credit union committed to supporting Syracuse and Central New York, we love to sponsor events such as this that make our region so special and unique.” said Twanda Christensen, Vice President of Marketing and Community Engagement for The Summit Federal Credit Union.  “Please stop by our tent for fun activities and contests.  All money raised goes directly to PEACE Inc. Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Sleep in Heavenly Peace. Both charities strengthen our communities and make a difference in the lives of area children and families.”

“It’s hard to believe that we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Taste of Syracuse,” said Galaxy Media chief operating officer, Carrie Wojtaszek. “Time sure flies when you’re having fun.  We stand by our message that no matter what you’re looking for, musically or food-wise, we truly can say we’ve got it at the Taste of Syracuse!  We’re also thrilled to be raising awareness and funds for both PEACE Inc. Big Brothers Big Sisters and Sleep in Heavenly Peace. We’d like to thank The Summit Federal Credit Union and Tops Friendly Markets for their support.  With help from our sponsors, we’re able to showcase this amazing event to the CNY community!”
