Annual Festivals & Special Events

Fun for the whole family

There are a number of great annual festivals and events throughout the Finger Lakes every year. Finger Lakes events showcase the rich character of our communities year-round.

The Finger Lakes is wine country, so don't forget to check on special events with our Wine Trail partners. But, there's much more to the Finger Lakes. Events centered around outdoor adventure, our rich history, the changing seasons, harvest season and the region's agricultural bounty, sport and music are never far away.  

GlassFest in Corning celebrates the long history of glass and glassmaking in Corning, with many events held in Corning’s Gaffer District and at the Corning Museum of Glass. Looking for out of the box unique celebrations of music, art, and more? Don’t miss the Rochester Fringe Festival celebrating the not so mainstream art of the ‘fringes’. More music abounds at the Geneva Music Festival with music and the arts taking place with celebrations around the Finger Lakes in various towns and communities.

Live music can be found throughout the region nearly every day of the week by visiting our partner FLX Music 247.

Find true local culture in the county fairs hosted in each of the 14 counties of the Finger Lakes. There you will find the taste, sights and sounds of summer in the region.

A series by Josh Dolan utilizing broken and rescued guitars as a canvas for collage giving them new life as art pieces.
April Gallery Night with Josh Dolan's "Broken Guitars"

Join us in the Grayhaven Lounge for BROKEN GUITARS,  a series by Josh Dolan utilizing broken and rescued guitars as a canvas for collage giving them new life as art pieces. The imagery of horses and the cosmos are often found in these works which tap into our subconscious need to ride! And broken things like broken people can still be beautiful and find new life. 

 

Josh has been a maker since childhood but only recently returned to active status as a visual artist. The pandemic, as for many of us, illustrated just how fleeting life is and forced him to choose a life of art and music. Not only is he a visual artist, but he’s also a pretty decent musician, singer and songwriter; having released his first record in 2023 with The 86ers. 

 

When not pursuing his passion for music and art he does stonework around ithaca in summer, and handyman projects during the off-season

We invite you to view an exhibition featuring works by the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators - Finger Lakes Chapter, a group representing artists working in a wide range of styles and media, both 2d and sculptural.The exhibition brings art and science together to help us understand the importance of interconnectivity and how better-informed decisions will help address the challenges of biodiversity loss, food insecurity and environmental conservation.

Event Details:

  • Moon & Stone Crystal Giveaway - the 1st 50 visitors on April 8th will receive a crystal hand-picked by the owners of Moon & Stone with a description card “Crystals have energy (think good vibes) that can mesh with your body's energy fields, giving you a Zen-like balance and promoting healing. Your body’s energy is always changing based on your mood. The vibration of a crystal is steady. When you incorporate crystals into your life, your vibration will raise or lower to meet that of the crystal! The crystal will choose you, you won’t choose the crystal! That means - which ever crystal you are attracted to right now, is the crystal your body and soul needs.” - Moon & Stone
  • 1-4pm Live music with Rachel Beverly
  • 12-4pm Christine Legott, Intuitive, Psychic Medium will be offering $20 Tarot Readings in Bagg Dare (10 Minute Readings)

2024 Total Solar Eclipse

Rochester & Geneva are in the path of totality during the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse. In a solar eclipse, the moon gets between the Sun and Earth. In a total solar eclipse, people who are in the path of totality see the Sun’s bright disk totally covered by the Moon for a short time.

Why is this a big deal? A total eclipse is one of the rarest and most spectacular events in nature. During the partial phases just before and after totality, the landscape around you is transformed by eerie dim light and strangely sharp shadows. During totality, the sky becomes as dark as deep twilight, bright stars and planets appear, and the Sun’s outer atmosphere, called the corona, shines around the black disk of the Moon’s silhouette. Changes in temperature, winds, and animal behavior occur during the time around totality. The experience is emotionally powerful and unforgettable.

What will we see? The Moon will begin to cover the Sun at 2:07 pm. Using a safe solar viewing method, we will see more and more of the Sun covered by the Moon over the next 73 minutes. This time is called a partial phase because the Sun is partially covered by the Moon. Totality begins at 3:20 pm and lasts 3 minutes 38 seconds (plus or minus a few seconds, depending on your exact location). After totality, the Moon gradually uncovers the Sun in a second partial phase. The eclipse ends for Rochester viewers at 4:33 pm

Solar Eclipse Viewing Event

On January 24, 1925 Auburn witnessed a total solar eclipse, which for many was a once in a lifetime experience. This rare astronomical phenomena attracted the attention of local scientist Theodore Case. Ted and members of his lab worked with the Colby Radio Research Lab while observing, documenting, and even filming the solar eclipse from the roof of the Masonic Temple in Auburn.

On April 8, 2024 Auburn will again experience a total solar eclipse. Join us for a unique viewing experience on the roof of the iconic Phoenix Building, right next to where Case recorded the eclipse in 1925, and one of the highest points in the city.

Schedule:
12 pm - meet at Phoenix Building, lunch provided
12:30 pm - Presentation by Cayuga Museum staff: history of solar eclipses, the Case Research Lab, and more
1 - 2 pm - Behind the scenes tour of Phoenix Building with owner Andrew Simkin
2 - 3 pm - Tour of clock tower and roof, prepare for eclipse

Eclipse: The total solar eclipse visits New York beginning at 3:16 pm with the final exit of the Moon’s shadow from the state at 3:29 pm. Through New York, the speed of the Moon’s shadow will accelerate from about 2210 miles per hour to about 2735 miles per hour.

After eclipse | Approximately 4 pm - Reception at Cayuga Museum, tour of Case Research Lab (optional)

This experience is $250 per person, including meals, special presentations, access to an exclusive tour of the Phoenix Building, exclusive viewing access from the Phoenix Building roof, a private reception, and a unique experience for this once in a lifetime event!
Reservations required as capacity is limited to 10 guests.

Safety and accessibility information:
The roof of the Phoenix Building is accessible through the clock tower, which requires walking up multiple flights of stairs in a small space. Flat shoes are required, rubber soles or sneakers are ideal. Eclipse viewing glasses will be provided.

This event is rain or shine, and reservations are non-refundable.

Park staff clean the cliff of winter-loosened rock from above Lucifer Falls at Robert H. Treman State Park.
Scaling our Gorges

Each spring, the Finger Lakes State Parks Scaling Teams rappel down cliffs over Gorge Trails, manually removing shards of shale that winter freezing has left perched on ledges. If they didn’t do this hard, dangerous work, called “scaling,” it would not be safe enough for us to walk in the gorges, for fear of falling rock. Scaling must be conducted annually in six state parks in the Finger Lakes region. In this encore episode (167) of Walk in the Park from 2017, we take a close look at the scalers at work on the high cliffs in the upper gorge of Enfield Glen in Robert H. Treman State Park near Ithaca, NY. The scalers tell us and show us what’s involved.
Walk in the Park is a commercial-free, public access TV series produced in Ithaca by Owl Gorge Productions a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

The Bard's Birthday Bash at Atwater Vineyards
The Bard's Birthday Bash at Atwater Vineyards

Is there a better way to celebrate Shakespeare's 460th Birthday than by playing his greatest hits & raising a glass in his honor? We think’st not!!  Join us for an evening of laughs, libations and Shakespeare in performance like you’ve never experienced.  Featuring scenes from: Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo & Juliet and more.  Don’t miss this fully immersive, one night only special event! Tickets are limited so get yours today.

Presented by Shakespeare on the Fly in conjunction with Atwater Vineyards.

Doors open at 6:30 PM, curtain at 7:00 PM.  Ticket includes $1 off the first glass of wine or cocktail.

Event link: https://www.exploretock.com/atwatervineyards/event/475053/the-bards-birthday-bash

Shakespeare on the Fly:

 We are a group of professional actors highly skilled in performing Shakespeare. What brings us together is a desire to perform Shakespeare's plays in a way akin to the way they would have been performed in his day. That is - actors gather for the first time with lines already memorized and have a rehearsal called "Burbage Time" (after Shakespeare's leading player Richard Burbage) in which entrances, exits, brawls, kisses, chases & dances are established. Then we sleep on it and perform for an audience the next day. What happens is nothing short of magical - the audience and actors are working out the story together in real time. 

 

Our mission is to go into communities & delight audiences with the pleasure, vitality, and accessibility of Shakespeare's language, while simultaneously taking that audience on an exploration of the provocative human themes that exist with his plays.

Dart Brothers
Dart Brothers CD Release Pre-Party

Saturday, April 20 · 6-9pm EDT

Tickets $15 HERE, $20 at the door

Welcome to the Dart Brothers CD Release Pre-Party at the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts, Inc. (TCFA)! Join us for a night of live music, drinks, and celebration as we gear up for the official record release of their upcoming album due out this summer. This in-person event will feature intimate performances by the Dart Brothers themselves, along with stories and anecdotes around the band's history, and writing and recording of their upcoming release. They will be joined by special guest artist Rena Guinn opening the show. Come out and support local music while enjoying a fun and laid-back atmosphere. Don't miss out on this exciting evening of music and community!

A few tidbits from the band regarding their previous album, Strangest Wavelength:
"The Strangest Wavelength from The Dart Brothers, released in 2020 and nominated for Americana Record of the Year by the Syracuse Music Awards, comes through as a wonderfully powerful classic rock record that touches on Americana and Alternative Country even as songs roll on with passionate vocals and strong guitar work through and through. The Strangest Wavelength album is packed to the brim with some outstanding guitar sections that flow, and wail while vocals keep true to that country twang undertone and give the record a near perfect aesthetic. What's really cool about these songs is that they are a real display of mature songwriting from seasoned musicians and at the same time shows a ton of youthful energy. These are songs the guys had fun recording and performing and you can clearly hear that with just about every single track on the record. It kind of makes you want to see The Dart Brothers perform live."

Now is your chance to see this marvelous group perform live at TCFA. For more information about the Dart Brothers and their upcoming record, please visit: https://dartbrothers.com

Park staff clean the cliff of winter-loosened rock from above Lucifer Falls at Robert H. Treman State Park.
Scaling our Gorges

Each spring, the Finger Lakes State Parks Scaling Teams rappel down cliffs over Gorge Trails, manually removing shards of shale that winter freezing has left perched on ledges. If they didn’t do this hard, dangerous work, called “scaling,” it would not be safe enough for us to walk in the gorges, for fear of falling rock. Scaling must be conducted annually in six state parks in the Finger Lakes region. In this encore episode (167) of Walk in the Park from 2017, we take a close look at the scalers at work on the high cliffs in the upper gorge of Enfield Glen in Robert H. Treman State Park near Ithaca, NY. The scalers tell us and show us what’s involved.
Walk in the Park is a commercial-free, public access TV series produced in Ithaca by Owl Gorge Productions a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

2024 Wine & Herb Event- April Weekend

Drink. Eat. Garden. Repeat. Jumpstart your herb garden by gathering potted herbs and veggies showcased in our delectable food samples, complete with a matching recipe collection.

Indulge in herb-infused dishes and discover the perfect wine pairing for each. Take home the recipes, ensuring you'll shine as the star chef at your next gathering. Plus, enjoy up to three additional wine tastings to complete your delightful experience.

  • April 27/28 and May 4/5 from 10am to 5pm, both days
  • 10 participating wineries
  • This event is structured like our pre-2020 events:
    • Select a specific starting winery for you and your friends to start at. (This is where you’ll receive your souvenir wine glass and first potted herb or vegetable plant!)
    • Travel the trail as you please after your first stop, collecting potted herbs or vegetable plants as you go.
    • The ticket is good for BOTH days, so feel free to spread the wineries out over both days or come on just Saturday or just Sunday. (Pro-tip: Sunday tends to be a lighter day, so the wineries won’t be as crowded, which makes for an excellent time to visit and get more one-on-one attention with less waiting.)
  • Groups are limited to 12.
  • Expect diversity. Some wineries will be offering the standard bar tasting while others will be offering a sit-down experience that may take longer. Take your time during the day and enjoy both!

Herbs this year are Basil, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Cilantro, Cherokee Purple Tomato, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary, and Sweet Banana Pepper..

Tickets:

Each ticket is good for the whole weekend to visit each winery once. Single tickets are $65 and couples tickets are $95 (plus tax and service fee) and include:

  • 1 wine and food pairing at each winery, per person
  • 3 additional wine tastings per winery, per person
  • 1 potted herb or vegetable plant per ticket (1 for a single ticket, 1 for a single DD ticket, and 1 for a couples ticket)
  • 1 recipe collection per ticket
  • 1 souvenir wine glass per person

Discounted designated driver tickets are also available. The DD gets all the same perks as a regular ticket, minus the wine. They also get a DD travel mug, rather than a wine glass. $45 for a single (plus tax and service fee).

Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl

Four local yarn shops are planning the third annual Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl to celebrate Local Yarn Store Day on Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 10am – 5pm.   Needlecrafters are encouraged to visit all four shops and have their Yarn Crawl Passport stamped to be eligible for prizes. The participating shops are:

·       Blossburg Company Store at 224 Main Street, Blossburg, PA

·       Fiber Arts in the Glen at 315 N. Franklin St, Watkins Glen, NY

·       Rabbit Row Yarns & Haberdashery at 24 E. Market St, Corning, NY https://www.rabbitrowyarns.com

·       Wooly Minded at 91 E. Market St, Corning, NY

The Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl is an event for knitters, crocheters, spinners and weavers to travel from store to store exploring what each has to offer and finding inspiration for new projects. Each shop is planning unique promotions, trunk shows as well as exclusive fiber products for the festivities. Participants are encouraged to check out the Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl Facebook Group for event promotions, parking, dining, and carpool information.

 “It's great fun!” Crawler Pat Jackson tells us. “Go with a friend, check out the yarn and things related to yarn, and afterward, compare your "finds".”

Knitter Ellen Kathan shares, “Last year was my first time participating in the Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl, and I had so much fun visiting each shop. The featured projects and yarns I purchased have been perfect for winter knitting.  Can’t wait for this year’s Yarn Crawl.”

And repeat Door Prize Winner, Ruth Riesbeck writes, “The Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl is a lovely way to spend a Saturday in April while supporting our local yarn shops.  I've participated in the first two crawls and have enjoyed my visits to the stores - it's not difficult to get to all four shops in one day, even if you start late!  Each shop is unique with its own personality.  I cannot say enough about the yarns that are available - they are beautiful, making decisions very, very difficult!  The shop owners have created inspiring and friendly environments to show off their yarns, supplies and other gifts.  They have something for everyone, beginners and experts alike.  I've been delighted with everything I've purchased and have been lucky enough to win some amazing door prizes!  I can't wait to be a part of this event again!”

The shop owners say, “As small business owners, we are delighted to host the Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl for the third year. Each shop showcases the immense variety of fiber products and a unique sense of community. We welcome our existing customers and encourage new fiber and needle art makers to come celebrate with us!”

 Local Yarn Store Day is an annual yarn shop appreciation day created by The National Needlearts Association (TNNA). The 2024 LYS Day is designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of enthusiasts to drive awareness and celebrate fiber craft. Vendors and retailers alike tout the benefits of locally owned yarn stores through an array of special products, classes, and more.
