We're still more than 3 months away from the 31st Annual Spiedie fest but organizers are already announcing details they hope will make the festival bigger and better than ever.

The buttons are back. This year festival goers will once again be able to purchase buttons that will provide access to all three days of the festival.this years musical line up will feature Colbie Caillat, Joan Jett, and Christina Perry.

Broome County Excutive Debbie Preston says the Spiedie Fest is more than just a beloved Binghamton tradition.

County Executive Debbie Preston says, "Those traveling to our community, they help fill our hotels and the event itself generates an estimated $7 million of economic impact to our community. I have to say, that's not bad for a 3 day event."

New features at this years Spiedie Fest include a Taste of New York tent offering beer and wine, a larger collection of rides and glass blowing demonstrations.

This years Spiedie Fest will be held on the weekend of July 31st in Otsiningo Park with free admission on Friday night.
