Razzasque Days is a homecoming-type celebration taking place every year, the second weekend of July. The name harks back to the turn of the century, when Razzasque Day was a popular LeRoy merchants’ promotion for a dozen or so years, and then discontinued…for what reason, no one seems to know. After everyone appeared to have such a good time at the 1973 LeRoy Centennial, it was decided to try an annual celebration, and it seemed appropriate to revive the name, Razzasque, for the Friday and Saturday event. The festival has been a roaring success ever since.

Today, Razzasque Days continues to be a 2-day festival, held on the 2nd weekend in July on Friday and Saturday. The festival is still patterned after many of the LeRoy Centennial events with a kid’s parade and games in the park, Junior Prince and Princess drawing, a Grand Parade, Chicken BBQ, adult beverage tent, food booths and raffle. Razzasque Days is proud to provide our community the opportunity to gather each July to reconnect with old friends and celebrate LeRoy.
