Syracuse Auto Expo

Date: Feb 10 - Feb 13, 2022

SADA President and SADA Charity Preview Co-Chair Rich Burritt made the announcement. “Although we are disappointed that there will be no 2021 Auto Expo, we know our local dealerships and national brands are excited to be returning to the Oncenter in 2022. We’re hoping to return to the days when large crowds support the 14 charities who benefit from the Auto Expo Charity Preview. Our goal for the 2022 event is to raise over $350,000 for the necessary services that support Central New Yorkers. Our experience over the last year has taught us that these organizations are critical to many people and families in need.”

“We’re enthusiastic about the 2022 Auto Expo as we celebrate the return of events and the ability to enjoy hundreds of vehicles spread out through the Oncenter complex. We will be back strong in 2022 as we welcome back manufacturers, local dealerships with their staffs, and friends and families that are excited to see the latest designs and technology in cars, trucks, and crossover vehicles.”

The Syracuse Auto Expo is one of the five oldest shows in The United States, debuting in 1907. That year, the highlight of the show was the unveiling of the Franklin automobile, made at their factory on West Fayette and Geddes Street in downtown Syracuse. The only other year the show was postponed was in 1945, during World War II.
