FRIDAY

NIGHT



 

Utica Summer Fest launched its inaugural year in 2018; 

a long awaited community event.  

This year, we turned up the heat at the start of summer

with top notch entertainment.  We extended the hours to run

Thursday and Friday, 11am-9pm. 

 

Although the weather posed a public safety concern on our

opening day with high winds and relentless rain,

Utica Summer Fest proved to be an event

that the community wants!!  The storm broke just in time for

hundreds to pour into the street on Friday night for the

incredible opportunity to see Motown

Artists RARE EARTH!  The sun was shining, the beer was

flowing and our finish was strong!! 

 

The Utica Summer Fest team proved to have incredible tenacity with a track record of very stong numbers on lead in promotion, satisfying our partner support with continued commitment and success.

TWO YEARS OF HIGHLIGHTS

 

Food & Beverages

 

Utica is home to many wonderful restaurants, including many with no fixed address.  Utica Summer Fest will feature great eats from several of the region's finest Food.  The Utica Summer Fest Beer & Cider Garden will offer an array of excellent Adult and All-Ages beverages selected for the occasion by Tri Valley Beverages and dispensed by volunteers from The American Cancer Society.  The ACS will receive partial proceeds from all adult beverages sold during Utica Summer Fest.

Veteran's Outreach Center

Through it's Utica Food Pantry, the Bunker Cafe, the New2You Thrift Store at the Parkway Center, the Public Use Gym and the James V. Luvera Memorial Chapel, and its Youth Boxing Program, The Central New York Veteran's Center provides a wide range of services and opportunities for the men and women who make our armed services branches the best in the world.  Volunteers from the center are stepping up to help with the logistics of Utica Summer Fest. 
In appreciation of their service to our country and our community, we ask that people attending Utica Summer Fest bring personal hygiene products that the center can make available through its nearby Center to drop off at their Utica Summer Fest outpost.
