Arts Council 5K Fun & Other Events

Syracuse City Arts Council was thrilled to host our first-ever 5K fun run!  The event took place on June 29th and featured around 3 dozen runners. It was a beautiful morning for a run. We are very appreciative of the support of the runners and sponsors, especially Tanner Clinic as title sponsor. Jesse Petersen came in first place with a run time of 18:03, followed by Doug Smith with a time of 19:11. The fun run will be an annual event hosted by the Arts Council before the parade.

Upcoming events: Syracuse City Arts Council is hosting a 5K Monster Dash! We encourage runners to dress up (no masks please for safety). The cost is $20 per runner and includes a T-shirt, swag bag, and a ticket to breakfast! This is a SCREAMING deal and sure to be a big hit. The race is October 27th at 8 a.m. Register at or the day of the race.

Breakfast runs 9-11 a.m. the same day (October 27th) at the Community Center. The cost is $5 per plate. Join us for French toast, potatoes, sausage, and your choice of beverage. All proceeds benefit the Arts Council.

We’re also hosting our annual candy walk outside the Community Center the same day from 10-11 a.m. We love seeing the little ones in costume!  Please bring your own bag for candy collection. We are actively seeking businesses and/or individuals to host booths to hand out candy. Decorations are encouraged, and participants can put up banners and hand out promotional business items during the event. Those interested in providing goodies for the candy walk can email ​​ to register or with any questions. There is no cost to participate in the candy walk.

We hope to see you October 27th for a fun-packed morning!
