Hunger Project Raffle

The annual Hunger Project Raffle is Sunday, December 15th, at noon at Nibsy’s Pub. All proceeds benefit local food pantries. 


The Syracuse St Patrick’s Parade was founded by Nancy Duffy. It all began with a meeting at Coleman’s Pub and Nancy’s strong desire to bring her Irish heritage and culture to the streets of Syracuse, New York. The 2020 Syracuse St. Patrick’s Parade is Saturday, March 14, at noon.
