Cultural Festivals

All of these festivals are free, non-profit organizations that are built and created by passionate locals and frequented by Syracuse natives from all walks of life. Offering live music, delicious authentic food, and plenty of activities for both adults and children, the variety of culturul festivals hosted in Syracuse is a great thing to check out on a beautiful summer day.

The progressive environment of this festival lets people know they truly are apart of a community. The festival is held in Clinton Square in the downtown area of Syracuse, NY. [4]

The Westcott Theater


Overview: One would find it very hard to believe that this venue frequented by Syracuse University students on an almost weekly basis was established in only 2008. Since then, the Westcott Theater, (or as it is more colloquially known, ‘The Westcott’), has grown exponentially in both size and standing among Syracuse University students, as well as the Syracuse community in general.

Due to its easy accessibility for students via bus, car, or walking, the Westcott Theater is a popular concert venue for many students on campus. The theater frequently brings in talent on a local and national level, and ticket prices almost never exceed $30 – $35. The venue also never seems to have shows exclusively for people 21 years of age or older – so for underage students, attending a concert at the Westcott is a positive alternative to a night of drinking at the bars on campus.

Because of the theater’s small size, shows at the Westcott Theater are almost always an intimate experience. The venue itself has two floors, with the stage, bar, and merchandise booth located on the first floor, and bathrooms located upstairs on the second floor. (Be warned however, the bathrooms only have two stalls, which almost always result in immensely long lines during any and all shows.) The physical construction of the actual building is not the most aesthetically pleasing. However, because the Westcott brings in such amazing artists on both a local and national level, it is renowned for the shows it puts on and its physical structure and appearance can be overlooked.


Overview: The Westcott Theater’s true shining attribute is the phenomenal musical acts it brings to its venue. Unfortunately, the majority of the time the Westcott brings big name talent to the theater on weekdays and school nights, which sometimes hinders students from coming out and enjoying a show, despite frequently cheap ticket prices.

In the 2012 – 2013 school year alone, the Westcott brought many big name artists across all varieties and genres of music, including Coheed and Cambria, The All American Rejects, 3lau, Dada Life, Fedde Le Grand, Excision, Datsik, Griz, Hinder, Aaron Carter, Kapslap and countless others. Tickets for many of these shows sold out entirely, days in advance, with the vast majority of audience members were Syracuse University students.

Electronic Dance Music at the Westcott: Perhaps the Westcott Theater’s greatest attraction for Syracuse University students is that it has started to bring many electronic dance music artists to the venue. Electronic dance music, (or ‘EDM’ as it is more colloquially known), is a music genre that is rapidly increasing in popularity, especially among teenage and college age students. Though the genre has been around for decades, as EDM has begun to be more mainstream, the Westcott Theater has taken notice. In this regard, at a school like Syracuse, which is known sometimes as much for its social activities as its academics, it is no surprise that EDM, which is all about partying, dancing, and having an all around good time, is increasing immensely in popularity. Fortunately, Syracuse fans of the genre are helping the Westcott reap the benefits of bringing big EDM names to the venue.

In the past two years alone, the Westcott Theater has brought numerous renowned DJs to its venue – some ranking among the best in the world. Famous talent of this genre that have performed at the Westcott Theater include Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis, Deniz Koyu, Krewella, Above & Beyond, Skrillex, Dirty South, Laidback Luke, Flux Pavilion, and many others. The caliber of talent and popularity of the electronic dance music genre at the Westcott have been attracting a lot of attention, both from the community of Syracuse and especially the Syracuse University student body. Slowly but surely the Westcott Theater is becoming the premier venue for student electronic dance music enthusiasts due its close proximity to campus and amazing shows.

Food and Drink: Located on the first level of the Westcott with comfortable proximity to the stage is a bar that serves a variety of alcoholic beverages, beers, and bottled water. The Westcott also has a water fountain on its first level located towards the back of the floor. Food is rarely sold at the venue, but at select events, particularly electronic dance music entertainment, gum and lollipops are sold at the merchandise stand towards the back of the theater on the first floor by the water fountain. No outside food or drink is ever permitted.

Security: Though not intensive by any means, recently the Westcott Theater has been stepping up and tightening its security for many of their shows. No outside food or drink is permitted, not even small items such as lollipops or gum. Bottled water is also not permitted, but can be purchased at the bar located at the first level inside the theater. Females are subject to having their purses searched, and both males and females are usually lightly patted down by security to ensure that no illegal items enter into the theater.

Community Standing: Recently, the Westcott has been receiving some bad press due to excessive noise complaints. After a show on March 4th of this year that ran past until 2 AM and received several noise complaints, the venue has become increasingly attentive to concerns of the community and to being more considerate of its volume post-shows. The Westcott has even gone as far as telling artists that they may not park their tour buses too close to the venue, and giving them a strict curfew by which they have to be off stage. In addition to noise complaints, after a part of the ceiling collapsed during a show in October of 2012 injuring many people, numerous safety concerns flooded the theater. The Westcott also often suffers from technological difficulties during electronic dance music shows, as the volume of the artists during their sets often exceeds what the equipment at the theater is capable of accommodating.

The electronic dance music scene is also frequently associated with excessive drug use, and because of the recent increase in bringing this type of entertainment to its venue, the theater is no longer becoming the ‘community friendly’ place it tried to promote when it was first established in 2008. However, with the recent enforced strictness that the theater is attempting to implement in regards to noise, safety, and security, the Westcott is attempting to fix this image. Unfortunately, to many Syracuse University students, it is still known as a place that is rather lax in terms of security, and has a reputation on campus as a venue where access to drugs and alcohol is readily available.

In Depth: University Union Performing Arts

University Union Performing Arts, Seth Meyers 2013

University Union Performing Arts

is responsible for bringing speakers and comedians to campus each year. In its earliest stages, the board was actually two different boards, University Union Speakers and University Union Comedians. The boards eventually combined to create University Union Performing Arts. As a board, the directors focus on bringing diverse acts to campus, focusing on attracting a large audience as particular issues affecting students today are discussed. The board seeks partnerships within the university in order to cross promote events and reach target audiences. With these partnerships, University Union Performing Arts has been able to build relationships and focus on national issues through their shows.

The typical set up for the Performing Arts schedule includes one speaker and one comedian a year. The events are typically held in Goldstein Auditorium, with tickets typically priced at five dollars ($5.00). Events for speakers either include a moderator, or the speaker will prepare a presentation and speech about his or her organization, cause, or work. Comedians present their stand up routines in the typical manner. Given a stage and whatever props they may require, comedians are given free reign to perform whatever material they would like. In the cases of Bo Burnham and Demetri Martin, the only accompaniment they needed were two musical instruments and a sketchpad and easel, respectively.


In the spring of 2012, University Union Performing Arts attempted to expand their reach. As Goldstein Auditorium only holds fifteen hundred people, the board wanted to venture beyond a show of this size. The shows are typically only open to the Syracuse University/SUNY ESF students and faculty, but in 2012, the organization announced that Aziz Ansari would be performing at the War Memorial/On Center. In an effort to engage a larger audience than just the university community, the show was open to the public.

In previous years, the Performing Arts board has steered clear of hosting events at off campus locations, but on rare occasions, there were events held at the Landmark Theater. These events seemed to go over well for the greater Syracuse community, as they were an attempt to connect students and residents of the city of Syracuse. While these events are less frequent, the organization has been committed to finding ways to increase the capacity of shows and bringing new talent to entertain the Syracuse audience.

The Performing Arts board hopes to expand its reach even more, and as University Union adapts to its new status as the official programming board of Syracuse University, all of the programming boards are working towards amplifying the quality of their shows. For Performing Arts, the new status gives the board a boost and a means to shine as a division of University Union.





In Depth: University Union Concerts

University Union Concerts, Juice Jam 2011

University Union Concerts

is comprised of one director of concerts and an executive board of members, all dedicated to successfully booking and marketing concerts that the student body. Excluding Mayfest, the Concerts board is responsible for booking six concerts a year, all of which are geared towards the greater Syracuse area, with a primary focus on the student body. Through the use of an annual survey, the Concerts board attempts to book acts that appeal to a wide demographic, though there are always issues with the final decision.

Juice Jam

At the beginning of each school year, University Union hosts a large-scale concert known as Juice Jam. On the second Sunday of every September, students are bussed to Skytop Field to view the concert, take part in the Student Activities Fair, and enjoy the carnival style games that abound. This concert acts as an introduction to the Syracuse community for some freshmen students, and is often the first time student organizations get to present themselves to potential members.

Juice Jam originally began as a small concert. In it’s first year, the show was free and open to the student body, but the venue was much smaller. In 2002, when it began, the concert was held near Lawrinson Hall. While the event was new, it still managed to “sell” out its limited number of tickets.

In 2011, Juice Jam took place on September 11th. As the show was announced, University Union Concerts notified the student body of the intent to donate funds to a charitable cause. The organization also used promotional opportunities to collect canned foods for food pantries throughout Syracuse. In keeping with the theme of charitable work, in 2012, University Union decided to do it again.

Following the tragic incident in Aurora, Colorado and the impact it had on a member of the Syracuse University community, University Union donated a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Organization for Victim’s Assistance. Considering the response from the student body when the previous year’s charitable endeavors were announced, the organization found it fitting to continue in this vein. Stephen Barton, a graduate of the Syracuse University Class of 2012, was injured in the Aurora, Colorado attacks; this gave the organization a cause to support that needed urgent attention and affected people outside of the Syracuse University community.

Past acts for this event include Passion Pit, Lup Fiaasco, Girl Talk and Childish Gambino.


The Bandersnatch Concert Series is a small concert that takes place in the Schine Underground. Each semester, two concerts are held, each 350 capacity, with the majority of these shows being open to students only. The series focuses on bringing musicians that either fall in the category of indie, or up-and-coming, with most of the acts being rappers or small bands. Typically, artists that are selected for these shows tend to go on to greater success in the near future. Examples of this occurrence are the band Grouplove, rappers Big Sean and Joey Bada$$, and indie rockers Two Door Cinema Club.


A staple of Syracuse University is the annual tradition known as Mayfest. On the last Friday of every April, students take part in festivities to celebrate the end of the school year. In 2009, the University decided host an official Mayfest celebration in Walnut Park, enlisting the help of Student Association and University Union. Since then, University Union and Student Association have worked together to find a balance in producing a safe environment for students to party responsibly. Though there are still events on Comstock and in houses around campus, Mayfest acts as a university-sponsored event that creates a safe space for students to enjoy their last full week of classes.

University Union Concerts’ role in the planning of the event is booking the musical talent. As the university-sanctioned event is still in the early stages of becoming a full-blown tradition in its own right, the organizations involved are still finding their place in the larger scheme of things. For University Union, the role has essentially been to find artists to play during the day, and as this has become the focus, the organization has begun focusing on the way the day-show would mesh with Block Party, the concert that takes place later that night.

Block Party

Block Party is the largest concert held y University Union. Each year, the Carrier Dome is opened on the last Friday of April. During the day, Mayfest takes place in Walnut Park, and around six o’clock in the evening, students move from Walnut Park to the Dome in preparation of the show. Since 2011, the capacity for such a show has reached a maximum of fifteen thousand people.

Because Block Party is the largest concert of the school year, it is often met with harsh criticism from the student body. In 2012, the student body was so outraged over the scheduled performer that the hashtag “Things I’d Rather Do Than Go To Block Party” became a national trending topic. Despite the repeated announcements about use of the annual survey, students still complained that they were not given an adequate line up. The fact that the organization was given seed funding and named the official programming board of the university only lead to more frustration within the student body. As a result of this, the show received a relatively low turn out rate, while students found other means of enjoyment. Those who attended the concert did enjoy themselves, as the event evolved into a giant party.

Tickets for this concert are available for purchase via and the .






In Depth: University Union Cinemas

University Union Cinemas, Les Miserables 2013

University Union Cinemas

is primarily responsible for the weekly movie screenings held on South Campus and Main Campus, in Goldstein Student Center and Gifford auditorium, respectively. The films screened tend to be major blockbusters that have recently been released, but the films have yet to be released to DVD/Blu-ray.

When the Cinemas division of University Union first began, the films ran from Wednesday night to Sunday night, with screenings being held in Watson Theater, as opposed to Gifford Auditorium. Before the influx in licensing prices, the organization hosted multiple screenings on multiple nights, for a moderate fee to subsidize the costs. Midnight screenings of films would be held as an additional event, while blockbuster films would be shown at earlier times. These blockbuster screenings had an admission price of two dollars.

In the recent past, Cinemas has evolved and eliminated midnight viewings, instead opting for weekly screenings of one film. Every Thursday and Sunday night, a film can be viewed on South Campus thanks to partnership between University Union Cinemas and S.C.O.P.E. On Friday and Saturday night, the same film can be viewed on Main Campus in Huntington Beard Crouse’s Gifford Auditorium. All screenings begin at 8 pm. At the end of each spring semester, the board closes University Union’s year with a film screening on the quad. This event is free and open to all members of the Syracuse community.

Each year, Cinemas is asked to host advanced film screenings for major production companies. Studios such as Fox, NBC Universal, and Sony Pictures have brought films to campus through the use of their student representatives. Movies such as The Evil Dead, American Gangster, and Get Him to the Greek have all been brought to campus through these partnerships.

In 2012, University Union Cinemas attempted to expand their reach by introducing a full-fledged student film festival. The film festival, aptly titled SyRECuse Student Film Festival, was created in order to give back to the students for all of their support to University Union. The first place prize included two tickets to the Tribeca Film Festival. As the event was in its beginning stages, there were a few problems and missteps in the planning and execution of the event, but the goal was not lost on the student body.

As the organization continues to expand, University Union Cinemas has continued searching for ways to engage and excite the student body, as it is a weekly presence. The board incorporates new and exciting ways to promote events, attract students, and provide a fun alternative to partying, especially in the cold weather months.




University Union

University Union 2013

University Union

, a student run organization, is the official programming board of Syracuse University.  The organization consists of three programming boards, four administrative boards, and two cabinet positions. The organization is responsible for planning large-scale concerts, speaking engagements, and weekly movie screenings on campus.


University Union was founded in 1962 as a student organization focused on bringing quality entertainment to the student body. At the time, the programming board focused on smaller scale events, but in its fifty years of existence, University Union has expanded its scope in order to reach a wider demographic of students. The organization consists of three programming boards: Performing Arts, responsible for the speaker and comedian engagements; Cinemas, responsible for the weekly film screenings and quad film screenings each year; and Concerts, which is responsible for planning six concerts a year.

With each school year, University Union’s Board of Directors (comprised entirely of students) works to provide diverse entertainment to fit the student body. With the incorporation of student surveys in the mid-2000s, the group focused on gaining more student insight as to what artists and speakers they wanted to see. As surveys go, the organizations sought to reach as many students as possible. In 2011, the organization was told to use Syracuse University’s Office of Institutional Research and Assessment as its means of surveying. This was to be done in accordance with Student Association Bill 55. 243, which made University Union the official programming board of Syracuse University, as well as granted the organization seed funding.


University Union consists of three programming boards, two boards dedicated to external relations, and three, internal “cabinet” positions. Cinemas, Concerts, and Performing Arts are the three boards responsible for programming events for the student body and each of these boards receives funding from Student Association. Collaborations and Promotions are the two boards that have the most experience with other student and professional organizations. The internal positions include the President, Vice President and Director of Operations.

Getting Involved

To get involved with University Union, students simply need to join the University Union group on . Registration requires students to sign in with their school network ID and password, and simply verify their e-mall address. Once this is done, students only have to search for University Union and join the group. The password is juicejam.

For those who want to get more involved, the University Union office is open most days of the week. Members of the board of directors as well as executive boards can be found in office 126D in the Schine Student Center.
