Art on the Porches June 15 Line Up!

Syracuse’s most fun neighborhood art party, Art On The Porches on Ruskin Avenue in the historic Strathmore Neighborhood turns 20 years old! It takes place on June 15, 2019 from 11AM to 5PM.

Art On The Porches is an art show, sale, and celebration of the historic Strathmore neighborhood and it’s unique urban lifestyle featuring local artists who design and create original works of art. Artists will be displaying and selling their work from the spacious porches and lawns of the beautiful homes along Ruskin Avenue.

This year’s festival features over 30 artists, painters, photographers, potters, muralists, jewelers and more.

At the children’s corner, kids will be delighted to find hands on activities where they can show off their artistic and performing talents as well, with workshops coordinated by Strathmore Neighbor Lydia Montgomery proprietor of local business Lydia’s Daily Thread .

Local food is also featured as the event hosts a variety of local food vendors to satisfy all hungry visitors palates. This year we have Gannon’s Ice Cream, Lao Village, Potatoes and Molasses and Sassy Taco.

Art On The Porches also means music in the streets. As always there will be two stages of music running throughout the afternoon. Once again they are able to bring KMASE Productions on board as a named sponsor of the Storytellers Stage. KMASE Productions has been bringing its wildly successful storytellers series to venues all around the region and they are thrilled to present it at Art On The Porches.
