holiday events in Syracuse

It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays! From Thanksgiving through the New Year, holiday events in Syracuse sparkle. Make your season extra special with a visit to Central New York for the holidays!

Lights on the Lake presented by Wegmans takes place between November 16th and January 8th. Visitors can enjoy this drive through display of holiday fun, The Land of Oz and sparkling, lighted animations.

The Village at Skaneateles hosts the annual Dickens Christmas celebration which begins the day after Thanksgiving and runs every Saturday and Sunday through December 18, from noon to 4 pm, plus December 24 from noon – 2:30 pm. Meet Charles Dickens and a cast of characters right from the pages of the storybook as they interact with visitors throughout the Village.

The Nutcracker is performed at the Oncenter this year by two amazing groups – the Syracuse City Ballet as well as the Moscow Ballet with the Great Russian Nutcracker.

Home For The Holidays invites you to ring in the season with Symphoria, dancers, the Syracuse Pops Chorus, Syracuse Children’s Chorus, and special guests, as well as a visit from Santa on December 16th and 17th.

Of course, the topper for the holiday season is New Year’s Eve at the historic Marriott Syracuse Downtown. There are still tickets remaining for our party packages which include events in our Grand Ballroom, Persian Terrace and Finger Lakes Ballroom on December 31, 2016.

When in town for any holiday events in Syracuse, we hope you will consider staying at our newly restored Marriott Hotel.
