Who We Are

Big Dog Events and Galaxy Events are focused on providing fun and engaging festivals, to encourage people members to get out and enjoy what their communities have to offer. Galaxy Communications was actually one of the first radio companies to branch out from broadcasting and successfully put on local events too, while using the power of radio to promote these events. These events bring national recording artists, premiere restaurants, and some of the most talented artisans that the area has to offer together to create events that are dynamic and leave visitors talking for weeks to come. Based on the success of these core events, we’ve since expanded to other markets throughout the state and all along the East Coast. Despite the growth, we remain true to our original idea: bringing unique, fun festivals to local communities.

Galaxy Events was created in 2002, and was originally a branding and sampling company for outside clients. Upon the purchase of the ever-popular Taste of Syracuse festival in 2006, the division was completely rebranded and relaunched as the major events company it’s recognized as today.

In 2017, we added Big Dog Events to the Galaxy Communications family. Big Dog Events will operate all non New York State events while Galaxy Events will continue to own and execute our core events in New York State. Big Dog Events has big plans for growth in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, including Beer and Bacon Festivals, and Wine and Chocolate Festivals, among others.
