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!

FRAM + AUTO
FARM + AUTO, art show curated by Lindsey Glover

FARM + AUTO
Curated by Lindsey Glover
Opening event: Saturday evening, February 11, 2023,6:00 to 8:00 pm
Free to attend, Wine and light refreshments served


Featuring work from a diverse group of creators, this show explores our connection to the land through the lens of the farm and/or the automobile. Participating artists include Orlando Arriaga, Michael Ashkin, Kenneth C. Burkhart, Carrie Chalmers, Lindsey Glover, Christina Leung, Jerry Lim, Joseph Podlesnik and Constance Saltonstall.  Show runs through March 24, with gallery hours on Fridays and Sundays, 1-5pm.

FARM + AUTO is a contemplation of the changing socio-economic landscape in America, fueled by the Industrial Revolution that gave us the automobile and, in turn, aspirations for a different kind of life. In this collection of photographs, sculptures, and artifacts, we explore the impact of modernization on America’s agricultural heritage, consider the evolution of deeply American ideals of freedom and personal liberty, and redirect attention to the high environmental costs of this shift.

Winter Seconds Sale at Handwork

February 16th to March 8th
Enjoy a wide range of discounts on handcrafted pottery, fiber, jewelry, woodwork, glass, wall art and more at Handwork Co-op's Winter Seconds Sale.

What's on Sale:
☀️ Artist's Seconds that are slightly imperfect, still full of charm, and totally unique, beautiful items.
☀️ Overstock items that are priced to sell. Including work from our local artists, from New York State artists and beyond.

We often get a question: "What makes this an artist's second? I don't see what's wrong with it!"

While it's true many of the seconds in our sale have minor imperfections, some of the items are overstock or come from an old collection of artists' work, and some items are experimental works of art. That's the fun of our second sale! You never know what you'll find, but you can surely find something beautiful at a great price.

Handwork, Ithaca's Artisan Cooperative is located in downtown Ithaca at 102 West State Street. Our store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday 11 am to 5 pm.

📧 Our sale is in-store only but we offer more than one way to shop: E-mail our staff at HandworkOnlineShop@gmail.com to request photos of our shelves and shop the sale from afar.

Drawing of Taughannock Falls from the 19th century
Taughannock Folklore

Host Tony Ingraham reads and illustrates legends and stories about Taughannock Falls before it was a state park in this encore episode 197 of Walk in the Park (from 2018). Find out about who Taughannock was, the “door” in the falls, the Taughannock Giant, and other “facts and fancies,” as author Margaret Badger called them in New York Folklore Quarterly in 1963. (Ingraham notes that stories that involve indigenous people at Taughannock may or may not have some roots in Haudenosaunee culture or history, but that they certainly have come to us via the pens of non-Indian people; and in some cases may have been been made up entirely or embellished for the entertainment of tourists at the hotels that once were perched near the rims of Taughannock Gorge in the 1800s.}

Walk in the Park is produced by Owl Gorge Productions, a partner business in the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance.

barrel and tank sample fridays
Barrel and Tank Sample Fridays

Do you consider yourself an aficionado of sorts? A connoisseur devoted to wine? If so, we’ve got the perfect promotion for you.

On every Friday in March, the member wineries of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail will be offering you a tank or barrel sample to go along with the purchase of your flight or tasting.

This isn’t just “getting an additional wine sample.” This is getting to taste a wine before it’s ready for the bottle. It’s getting to taste the wine before it’s mature, filtered, etc.

It’s getting to taste a part of the winemaking process.

The tank or barrel sample you have will* align with what’s in your flight or tasting selection, so you’ll get to experience the “before and after” of that wine.

But even if you aren’t an aficionado or connoisseur, this tasting will still be such an eye-opening experience and will give you a greater appreciation for the steps that go into creating your favorite wine.

So pick a Friday (or 2) and swing into any of our 12 wineries during the month of March for your Tank or Barrel Samples.

 

*Exceptions to this may apply depending on your selection and what they have in their tanks and barrels.

FRAM + AUTO
FARM + AUTO, art show curated by Lindsey Glover

FARM + AUTO
Curated by Lindsey Glover
Opening event: Saturday evening, February 11, 2023,6:00 to 8:00 pm
Free to attend, Wine and light refreshments served


Featuring work from a diverse group of creators, this show explores our connection to the land through the lens of the farm and/or the automobile. Participating artists include Orlando Arriaga, Michael Ashkin, Kenneth C. Burkhart, Carrie Chalmers, Lindsey Glover, Christina Leung, Jerry Lim, Joseph Podlesnik and Constance Saltonstall.  Show runs through March 24, with gallery hours on Fridays and Sundays, 1-5pm.

FARM + AUTO is a contemplation of the changing socio-economic landscape in America, fueled by the Industrial Revolution that gave us the automobile and, in turn, aspirations for a different kind of life. In this collection of photographs, sculptures, and artifacts, we explore the impact of modernization on America’s agricultural heritage, consider the evolution of deeply American ideals of freedom and personal liberty, and redirect attention to the high environmental costs of this shift.

Winter Seconds Sale at Handwork

February 16th to March 8th
Enjoy a wide range of discounts on handcrafted pottery, fiber, jewelry, woodwork, glass, wall art and more at Handwork Co-op's Winter Seconds Sale.

What's on Sale:
☀️ Artist's Seconds that are slightly imperfect, still full of charm, and totally unique, beautiful items.
☀️ Overstock items that are priced to sell. Including work from our local artists, from New York State artists and beyond.

We often get a question: "What makes this an artist's second? I don't see what's wrong with it!"

While it's true many of the seconds in our sale have minor imperfections, some of the items are overstock or come from an old collection of artists' work, and some items are experimental works of art. That's the fun of our second sale! You never know what you'll find, but you can surely find something beautiful at a great price.

Handwork, Ithaca's Artisan Cooperative is located in downtown Ithaca at 102 West State Street. Our store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday 11 am to 5 pm.

📧 Our sale is in-store only but we offer more than one way to shop: E-mail our staff at HandworkOnlineShop@gmail.com to request photos of our shelves and shop the sale from afar.

Drawing of Taughannock Falls from the 19th century
Taughannock Folklore

Host Tony Ingraham reads and illustrates legends and stories about Taughannock Falls before it was a state park in this encore episode 197 of Walk in the Park (from 2018). Find out about who Taughannock was, the “door” in the falls, the Taughannock Giant, and other “facts and fancies,” as author Margaret Badger called them in New York Folklore Quarterly in 1963. (Ingraham notes that stories that involve indigenous people at Taughannock may or may not have some roots in Haudenosaunee culture or history, but that they certainly have come to us via the pens of non-Indian people; and in some cases may have been been made up entirely or embellished for the entertainment of tourists at the hotels that once were perched near the rims of Taughannock Gorge in the 1800s.}

Walk in the Park is produced by Owl Gorge Productions, a partner business in the Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance.
