Cars have long been a part of American popular culture. Even now in 2018, if you have any doubt that the automobile still reigns supreme, check out the over 8,000 classic cars that take part in the annual Syracuse Nationals Car Show at the New York State Fairgrounds. The 19th Annual Syracuse Nationals 2018 is set to draw thousands of people to the Downtown Syracuse area during the three-day extravaganza. Starting on Friday, July 20th and through the afternoon of Sunday, July 22nd, there’ll be no shortage of fun things to do. This is one of the most highly-anticipated local Syracuse events of the summer, after all. And you don’t need to be a car enthusiast to have a great time!

Sure, having a love of hot rods will make this a must-attend event. Yet the more than 90,000 visitors that are expected to make their way to the fairgrounds don’t all share this automobile adoration. The reason why this festival is at the top of the list of what’s happening in Syracuse in July is because of the all-inclusive family-fun that can be had. From Artie’s Party, showcasing hand-painted artwork with an automotive theme, to the Main Stage, full of local bands ready to rock and roll all night, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. There’s even a special Women’s World area, full of vendors and activities that are four-wheeling but feminine in fashion!

Whether taking a road-trip to the event or just a local neighborhood joyride, let the comfort and convenience of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown Hotel be the perfect “rest area” on your highway to summer fun! Located just 5 miles from the Fairgrounds, the Marriott Syracuse Downtown will allow you to rest and relax before getting your motor running and heading out for your automotive adventure!
