Finger Lakes Events Calendar

Festivals, Happy Hour, Live Music, Theatre, and More!

It doesn’t matter what your interests are or who you’re in the Finger Lakes with, you can always find a great event to enrich your time in the region with those you care about. 

Events take place all year round in the Finger Lakes region. From lakeside (and on the lake) events in the summer to harvest activities in the fall, snowmobiling or snowshoeing in the winter, and festivals in the springtime! Step inside a glassmaker’s studio to blow your own glass, stroll Main Street on a food tour, or gather for live music and theater performances. Browse the list of Finger Lakes events below or search the specific dates you will be visiting to see everything going on in the region.

Great Events that Happen Every Year

Below, you will find dozens of great events happening throughout the year with many of them happening annually. If you have memories of favorite annual Finger Lakes events from childhood such as cardboard boat regattas, hot air balloon festivals, cheese, apple or pumpkin festivals, to name a few, it’s likely that event that still takes place or, has likely improved your enjoyment. If you see a special event that piques your interest but can’t make it, click on the event anyway, it might be coming back next year!

Events Added Daily

Make sure to check back frequently to see if any other great events have been added. Events are added daily by businesses from every sector and interest so if there is nothing that sparks your interest now, there very well could be soon!

Adapted from Jane Austen’s Novel by Rachel Atkins

Craig Bond-Director

Witty, intelligent, beautiful, rich, entitled, and spoiled, Emma Woodhouse loves to be a matchmaker, though she has vowed to never marry herself. When Frank Churchill, Mr. Weston’s flirtatious son, and Jane Fairfax, the accomplished niece of local chatterbox Miss Bates, enter Highbury’s limited social sphere, complications and misunderstandings foil all of Emma’s plans, revealing her obliviousness to the true nature of almost everyone around her—including herself.

Hunt Country Writer’s Workshop with Lilace Mellin Guignard – Writing Inner & Outer Landscapes

On a winter Sunday, we will open our doors to a small group who with to jumpstart or refresh their writing.  "I find I do more writing in the winter," says our instructor, Lilace Mellin Guignard.  "The extra darkness and colder weather are conducive to hunkering down and diving inward." 

A glass of wine and breaking bread with some like minded folks makes it even better.

INSTRUCTOR: Lilace taught poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania before becoming associate publisher of Mountain Home magazine, for which she also writes.  Before moving to Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, she taught courses at the University of Nevada, Reno, and Warren Wilson College.  She is the author of an adventure memoir, When Everything Beyond the Walls Is Wild: Being a Woman Outdoors in America (Texas A&M Press 2019) and a poetry chapbook Young at the Time of Letting Go (Evening Street Press 2016).  Her poems have appeared in Poetry magazine, Ecotone, Calyx, and Northern Appalachia Review, to name a few.  You can find her at tentofonesown.com.

WORKSHOP:  How do we convey internal thoughts and feelings while following the age-old adage to (mostly) show, don’t tell? If the outer landscape is what we have in common, how do we use it to reveal what is going on inside? This workshop will present a more holistic way to approach the use of creative tools we have been taught are separate—simile, metaphor, sensory description, sound, rhythm, tone—so that we better understand how they work together to convey meaning in our fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

This workshop is for all levels and all genres, and will include individual writing time, craft tips, handouts, discussion, and house made farm-to-table noshes with wine. Bring your favorite journal and pen, bring a cushion and blanket if you like to spread out on the floor. Most of all, bring a willingness to let go of judgment, explore, and create.

FOOD & WINE:  A meal of house-made soups, salad, bread, and cookies will be served at the conclusion of the workshop.  A Hunt Country glass of wine of your choosing will also be included.  Additional wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available for purchase.  We can accomodate most food restrictions. 

Please email tessa@huntwines.com with any questions, or give us a call at 315-595-2812.
