winter fun in Syracuse

In Syracuse we have winters of epic portions but we not only embrace the winter, we celebrate it with Winterfest!

Winter fun in Syracuse takes center stage for twelve days of activities and food at both indoor and outdoor events throughout the city from February 16 – 26. Over 100,000 visitors come to join in the festivities and this year, as the Official Hotel of Winterfest, we are proud to be a part of it all!

Join us for the Winterfest Kick-off Dance Party of February 17 from 7-11pm at the Finger Lakes Ballroom. Live music, cash bar and food.

Plenty of opportunities to enjoy our Winterfest offerings:

  • Culinary Cruise on February 18 from 12pm-4pm at Eleven Waters. “Cruisers” will purchase tickets for $5 to visit participating restaurants and sample their culinary specialties and vote for their favorites.
  • Martini Mix-off on February 18 from 12-4pm at the Cavalier Room. The Marriott Syracuse Downtown will be participating in the competition to see which area restaurant has the best martini!
  • Chili Cook-off on February 25 from 11am-3pm at Clinton Square featuring Shaughnessy’s. Who will have the best chili in town?
  • Chowder Cook-off on February 26 11am-3pm at Clinton Square featuring Eleven Waters. It is every restaurant for themselves as they all vie to see who has the best chowder in Central New York.
  • Bloody Mary Mix-off on February 26 12pm-4pm at Eleven Waters. Stop at the participating downtown restaurants and try the various bloody Mary offerings to determine who has the best taste and presentation.
  • Wing Walk on February 26 from 12pm-5pm outside on the Sidewalk featuring Shaughnessy’s in this Winterfest favorite. Which wings will come out on top?

While there are countless foodie events to take advantage of, visitors can also enjoy comedy shows, dancing, entertainment, kids’ events, museum events, trivia and a host of other varied activities throughout the celebration.

Everyone at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown hopes you have a wonderful time at this year’s Winterfest activities.
