Binghamton Spiedie Fest to Highlight Iconic Sandwich!



August 2-4, 2013 is the date for one of Upstate biggest food, music and arts festivals.  The iconic spiedie sandwich was invented here decades ago and this festival will certainly satisfy even the hungriest festival goer.  The venue is at Binghamton’s beautiful Otsiningo Park.

Tens of thousands will visit the three day food festival this year.  Organizers are predicting one of the largest crowds ever for a performer with ticket sales for LeAnn Rimes outpacing any of the previous year’s acts.
