Last year’s event was an over whelming success and we expect nothing less of this year’s show.

This will be the second year in our new location, which is not only larger, but also a great experience!

Take in the wonderful crafts, the food and fun, and enjoy the beautiful sites of our city.

All of the vendors commented on how “well-organized and how well-run” the show was and many said that they would be back next year.

“With all of our past fundraising events, we are once again expecting capacity crowds and another successful event for our club,” said Mike Henderson, Oswego Lions Club President. “We will have entertainment, a section dedicated to children, food, wine and fun things to do for the whole family.”

The Oswego Lions Club, established in1956, raises money through various fundraisers and distributes this money in the community.

The primary missions of the Lions Club are sight and hearing related projects. This includes assisting community residents and school students with eye exams, eyeglasses, and hearing aids.

In addition to sight and hearing, the club donates money to many worthy organizations and causes in the community.

The funds raised from booth rentals will help support our administration fund so that we can continue to support these efforts. With your help and support, we can make this event a huge success that will allow us to fulfill our mission and continue to provide services needed most in our community.

Donations are always accepted.

Proceeds from past fundraising events have helped to support  the Children’s Museum of Oswego, Oswego Hospice Rainbow of Hope, Oswego Salvation Army, “H” and Mary Dowd $2000 Annual Scholarship Fund, Friends of Camp Hollis, The Oswego Library Capital Campaign, The Golisano Children’s Hospital, The United  Way Stone Soup Food Pantry and Stuff a Bus, “There is no Magic in Drugs” which is a drug awareness program for all the elementary schools and we are a major sponsor of the Oswego Little League,  just to mention a few.
