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.
