Annual Festivals & Special Events

Fun for the whole family

WHILE MOST PUBLIC EVENTS WERE CANCELED IN 2020 DUE TO COVID-19 CONCERNS, WE DO LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING BACK THESE SIGNATURE EVENTS FOR 2021!

 

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 famous for great wines, and how could you have wine without cheese? Be sure to visit the Finger Lakes Cheese Festival to find the perfect cheeses to beautifully accompany the wine that best suites your palette. 

Need to work off the wine and cheese? Have no fear! The Finger Lakes proudly presents the Wineglass Marathon that was named a top destination and must-do marathon by Livestrong, Active Times, and others, the Wineglass course is a fast, flat, and scenic point-to-point course through the southern Finger Lakes, and a Boston Marathon qualifier race.

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.

Look below to find the biggest, annual events in the Finger Lakes that pique your interest and give you the flavor of what the region has to offer!

Holiday Feast made out of glass
Glass Holiday Feast

Stop in to see a festive holiday meal inspired by the warmth and kinship shared at tables throughout the holiday season.

Created by the Hot Glass Demo team, the holiday feast features meal staples like turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Each year the feast grows as gaffers create and bring their favorite dishes to the table.

Colorful glass ornament tree
Holiday Ornament Tree

In 2008, the first annual Holiday Ornament Tree showcased more than 600 ornaments handmade by our Hot Glass Show staff. The tree was eight feet tall and four feet in diameter at the bottom. The next year, the tree grew to 14 feet tall, with more than 2,000 glass ornaments made by Museum glassmakers.

The Museum's glittering ornament tree has now become a holiday tradition — the perfect background for an annual holiday photo. The tree is joined by other wonders in glass, including a holiday meal made entirely of glass, as well as a life-sized glass snowperson family. 

You can’t buy the ornaments on these trees, but you can Make Your Own Glass Ornament, year-round, at The Studio.

A Glass Tree of Life Menorah
Tree of Life Menorah

The Tree of Life Menorah brings together fine leaves, sturdy branches, a thick tree trunk, and an intricate system of roots—all made possible through flameworked glass shaped over a 4,000°F torch.

The menorah is a prominent symbol in the Jewish faith and plays a central role in the celebration of Hanukkah. Likewise, the “Tree of Life” carries different meanings across faiths, but holds special meaning in Judaism for its connection to the Torah, the Jewish people’s most sacred text. Genesis, the first book of the Torah, locates the “Tree of Life” at the heart of the Garden of Eden (2.4–3:24), and Proverbs 3:18 teaches: “[The Torah] is a tree of life to those who hold her close.”

For many, the tree represents growth, stability, and fertility, as well as hope for and connection to future generations. The extensive roots and intertwined branches illustrate family connections.

Glass candles with flames were also created and will be added each day of Hanukkah.

The Tree of Life Menorah was developed in partnership with Rabbi Todd Markley of Temple Beth Shalom, Needham, MA.

Kwanzaa Setting made out of glass
Kwanzaa Setting

The kinara, Swahili for candleholder, holds seven candles—three red on the left, three green on the right, and a single black candle in the middle—that represent the seven principles that are the foundation of the African-American celebration Kwanzaa. As a new candle is lit each day, families discuss one principle’s importance and how it fosters community amongst African-Americans.

The glass kinara represents a bridge spanning generations of African-American people, and a waterfall cascades behind it to symbolize how they all flow together. In this setting is a Kikombe cha Umoja (Unity Cup) signifying the gathering of family in celebration of a rich heritage. Behind the scene, a mirror invites the onlooker to see their reflection and contemplate what Umoja means to them.

Kwanzaa Setting was designed by Jonathan Rowe of Horseheads, New York, and the Rowe Family guided and assisted the Museum’s Hot Glass Demo Team in creating the piece. The collaboration grew out of discussions of Kwanzaa principles, African-American history, and the state of race relations in the United States. One key principle surfaced in those conversations as the focal point for discussions of family, community, and the issues at hand: Umoja, or “Unity.”

Stahl Caso artwork at Damiani Wine Cellars
Art Opening at Damiani Cellars: Stahl Caso

It’s time to turn off your brain and let feelings and stimuli take over. Join us Saturday for amazing wine, small bites, and art by local artist, Stahl Caso.

SPECIAL
$2 off glasses of the new 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon or 10% off bottles. Full cheese and charcuterie menu available for purchase. Masks are required.

FROM THE ARTIST:
In this collection of paintings, I have focused on my relationship with nature, titled “Portal Farming on Rural Moon.” I take a fantastical approach to seeds and plants within our lives.

I use primarily recycled materials in my Art. Found wood and paints, gifted materials from friends and occasionally items bought at second-hand shop like Ithaca Re-Use. I feel like the planet is covered in usable goods and it is one of my priorities to turn them into Art.

My process in making Art consists of multiple layers and formations over days and weeks. Some of my pieces have maybe six or seven previous pictures painted on the material. I just keep going until I feel like the Art has finished its journey. A common theme in my work is the creation of different rooms and doorways within the piece. I’m not entirely aware of why I do this, but it has been a component of my work for years. I do like the idea of life taking me in different directions based on the path I choose to take. Not in a super spiritual way but more of a pragmatic decision-making way. You never know what’s up ahead unless you go there…

Thank you for taking the time to look at my Art and read this short description/artist statement, I hope you found it enjoyable…

– Stahl Caso

Tasting room staff enjoying the wine.
2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Release Weekend

Sample our new release 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon this weekend in our Tasting Room. We only have 96 cases remaining and it’s a killer wine, ready to knock your socks off.

Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom | Virtual Event

A Clemens Center Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series production
presented by Columbia Artists Theatricals

TURNING 15 ON THE ROAD TO FREEDOM

Available for Streaming Monday, January 10 – Sunday, January 23, 2022

 

Filled with traditional and original Gospel and Freedom songs, Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom tells the moving and inspiring true story of Lynda Blackmon, the youngest person to walk all the way from Selmato Montgomery, Alabama, on the Voting Rights March in 1965. Linda was jailed nine times before her fifteenth birthday as she and her friends fought alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to secure the right to vote for African Americans. Ally Sheedy adapted the award-winning memoir by Lynda Blackmon Lowery (DialPress, 2016) for the stage. Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom is directed by Fracaswell Hyman and the music director is Joshuah Brian Campbell. The show is produced by Lynda Blackmon Lowery, Miranda Barry, Amy Sprecher, Voza Rivers and the New Heritage Theatre Group.

Please Note: This show tells the true story of the sometimes brutal period of Civil Rights history in the United States, including video of actual events. Some content may not be appropriate for children under 10.

Curriculum Ties: Black History, Civil Rights

Recommended for Grades 6 – 12   

Show Length: 50 minute performance and a 30 minute documentary-style interview with Lynda Blackmon Lowery
