2.) The 3rd Annual Oswego Porch Fest
This is something that many people may not know about, but it sounds awesome and is definitely something that is going to be worth checking out! Oswego has scheduled for over 30 performers to come out on Sunday September 24, 2017 from 1-5 p.m. They will be located on the west side of Oswego in the Historic Districts of West/Franklin and Montcalm Parks. The performances are free, and they are scattered throughout the neighborhoods and parks. Don’t miss this fantastic chance to meet local performers and spend the day outside with friends!
3.) CNY Great Pumpkin Festival
Each year, Oswego is the host of this annual festival. Come out and enjoy amusement rides, vendors, crafters, food, fun, and GINORMOUS pumpkins! This festival lasts all day long from September 30 to October 1, 2017. It is located at Washington Square Park in Oswego, NY. Take a picture next to one of the huge pumpkins and send it to us for a chance to be featured on the SUNY Oswego Instagram or Snapchat!
4.) Suicide Prevention 5k Fun Run and Walk
This is the 7th annual suicide prevention walk to be held on the SUNY Oswego campus. This walk is meant to support those who have lost someone to suicide, and raise awareness for the cause. The run/walk will be held on September 30, 2017 from 9-3 p.m. The event is free, but if you chose to raise $50 or more you will receive a free t-shirt. Put on your running shoes and come out to support a great cause!
5.) Oswego Farmer’s Market
The Oswego Farmer’s Market is basically a mini fair, with food trucks, fried dough, popcorn, vendors, crafters and much more! This event takes place each Thursday from 4-8 p.m. and is located on West 1st Street right in the heart of Oswego. There are only two more weeks left of the farmers market for this season, so don’t miss out!
There are many other things going on both on and off campus this fall, so don’t limit yourself to just these events! Get out, get involved and enjoy the fall season! Before we know it the ground will be covered in snow…
