What is IGNITE the Winter?
IGNITE the Winter is a First Friday event held in March in Downtown Auburn. The festival was introduced in 2012, by IGNITE, Cayuga County’s Young Professionals, a program of the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce, as a family-friendly celebration of winter developed to stimulate economic activity in Downtown Auburn during the off-season. The event was organized in partnership with the Downtown Auburn Business Improvement District and received community-wide support.
The festival is held on Exchange Street and inside Genesee Mall and the municipal parking garage. More than a dozen vendors from Auburn and Cayuga County are expected to participate in the cookoff. Main stage acts in past years have included acoustic rock performer Dave Hawthorne, a cappella group Cayuga Chords, Merry-Go-Round Youth Theater.
