Event description


Art on the Porches (AOTP) Arts Show, Sale, and Festival began 20 years ago as an auxiliary event to Strathmore-by-the-Park's Historic Homes Tour. Today, it is the Strathmore neighborhood's premier event, attracting 3,000 visitors for a day filled with art, music, food, and community.

This year's festival will be held on Saturday, June 15th, 2019 on the generous porches and lawns of picturesque Ruskin Avenue. Numerous local bands will be on hand to provide music and entertainment from two stages, while tasty food and beverages will be provided by some of Syracuse's favorite restaurants and food trucks.
