73. The District Festival

The arts in Syracuse are going through pretty amazing times recently; there’s no stopping or slowing down, either.

When I first heard about The District Festival I was immediately into it. I had seen Grey Gardens on HBO and was hooked on the weird dynamic between The Bouvier’s…not to mention, to learn a little more about Jackie O is always on my to-do list. It was incredibly insightful.

The District Festival is exactly that, a festival. It’s a celebration of arts and wonderful acting here in Syracuse with the production of 3 shows for 3 weekends. We’ve missed the opening weekend, but for a good reason. However, there’s still time to check out the remaining weekends.

It goes from March 7th-24th, and all shows are played at the Empire Theater at the State Fairgrounds. They’ll be showing performances of The Full Monty, Grey Gardens and I Remember Mama. Click here for more info.

This is a great chance to mix things up a little and check out some great talent here in Syracuse. Tickets are reasonably priced at $20 each or $50 for a 3 show package.

Tip: To purchase advance tickets call 315-362-2768 or visit their website.
