SYRACUSE — A cool crisp breeze and temps in the 70s served as the background for this year’s Oakwood Fine Arts Festival. The festival started at 10 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. today, Saturday, June 22.
Chautauqua-Wawasee hosted the event at Oakwood Resort in Syracuse.
This annual family-friendly event brings artists from around the area and gives the lake community the opportunity to experience fine art in an up-close and personal, yet casual outdoor setting.

The juried fine arts and crafts festival was held outdoors at Oakwood Resort. Featuring award-winning artists, a children’s art experience, entertainment and food, admission to the festival is free, so bring the family for a full day of fun.
Over 30 artists from around the region showcased their talents.
Live music took place all day, featuring Gary Gerard, Will Certain and Beez and the Rocker.
