Calendar of Events in the Finger Lakes

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!

Self-Portrait Photo
A History of Photography

This rotation provides an overview of the history of photography through images that include photographers, photographic apparatus, and/or photographic objects. Made by a wide range of photographers, the objects on view begin with John Moffat’s 1865 portrait of William Henry Fox Talbot and culminate in Gillian Wearing’s 2013 work Me As Talbot, a self-portrait that mimics a portrayal of Talbot with his mousetrap camera. Curated by Jamie M. Allen, associate curator of photography, this installation depicts how photographers have referred to the medium, and to themselves, in their image-making.

Stories of Indian Cinema

Stories of Indian Cinema includes Abandoned and Rescued, the intriguing behind-the-scenes tale of the recently acquired collection of Indian films and posters; a film series that includes screenings of a selection of film reels discussed in the exhibition; and Nandita Raman: Cinema Play House, a series of poignant black-and-white photographs of abandoned and failing single-screen cinemas in India.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Stories of Indian Cinema

Stories of Indian Cinema includes Abandoned and Rescued, the intriguing behind-the-scenes tale of the recently acquired collection of Indian films and posters; a film series that includes screenings of a selection of film reels discussed in the exhibition; and Nandita Raman: Cinema Play House, a series of poignant black-and-white photographs of abandoned and failing single-screen cinemas in India.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Stories of Indian Cinema

Stories of Indian Cinema includes Abandoned and Rescued, the intriguing behind-the-scenes tale of the recently acquired collection of Indian films and posters; a film series that includes screenings of a selection of film reels discussed in the exhibition; and Nandita Raman: Cinema Play House, a series of poignant black-and-white photographs of abandoned and failing single-screen cinemas in India.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Lecturer to Explore History of Upstate Water Cures at the Geneva Historical Society

In conjunction with the current exhibit, Medicine and Illness: Health Care in Geneva, the Geneva Historical Society's spring lecture series is focused on illness and its treatment. The second lecture in the series is “Becoming Well at the Water Cures of Upstate New York” by Jane Oakes on Tuesday, April 17 at 7 p.m.
 
Water cures and mineral springs became popular during the 1830s and 1840s. Many continued to exist right into the 20th century. Ms. Oakes will look at what made these treatments popular, how the two health approaches differed, and how water cure theories still impact our ideas about health today. Examples will include Our Home on the Hillside in Dansville, the Cordelia Green Water Cure in Castile, and the sulfur springs hotels in Avon. She may also touch on Geneva’s own water cure at the Hygienic Institute on Pulteney Park.
 
Jane Oakes has been involved with historic education for over forty years. She has taught classes in open hearth cooking, nineteenth century schooling, and historic architecture for Genesee Country Village & Museum, was a museum studies and local history teacher for BOCES, and was the School Tours and Education Coordinator for the William Mills Mansion Museum in Mt. Morris. Ms. Oakes holds a BA in Theater and an MA in History.
 
The lecture series will conclude May 2 with “18th- and 19th-Century Medicine: From the Revolution Through the Civil War” by Les Buell.
 
The lecture series is free and open to the public. It is supported in part by the Samuel B. Williams Fund for Programs in the Humanities. For more information about this program or the series, visit www.genevahistoricalsociety.com or call the Geneva Historical Society office at 315-789-5151.
 
The Geneva History Museum is located at 543 South Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Parking is available on the street or in the lot at Trinity Episcopal Church.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Opening Reception and Exhibit: Student Art Show

Visitors to the Arts Center will get a preview of work being done by a new generation of artists from April 16 to April 28, during the Arts Center’s annual Student Art Show.  The two-week exhibit will highlight art created by middle and high school students in Penn Yan, Dundee and Marcus Whitman. 

 

Art teachers in all three districts have been collecting the best work done by their students throughout the year to include in this exhibit.  The yearly show generally includes drawing, painting, photography and ceramics as well as some unique and unexpected mediums.  In past years students have created work using plastic bottle caps, VHS and packing tape, and other recycled materials to name a few. 

 

Once the exhibit is hung by the district art teachers, the Arts Center recruits professional artists to judge the show, just as professional artists experience at juried art shows.  Awards are given for two-dimensional work, three-dimensional work, and photography for all three districts and an overall best of show is also chosen.  Thanks to the generosity of the district parent-teacher organizations, winners get cash prizes and are recognized at the exhibit opening, which will be held on Friday, April 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

 

“This is really an exciting show,” says Arts Center Executive Director Kris Pearson.  “Students get to see their work presented in a professional environment. Parents get to see their student’s work in a different context. Visitors get to see how assignments often stimulate very different creative responses.  Artists get to see the new generation of artists.”

 

The Student Art Show runs from April 16 to April 28.  The opening reception is Friday, April 20 from 7- 9 p.m.

The rabbet line will be determined and cutting the rabbet will be started. Also from the lofting, the shape of the transom will be laid out on mahogany and cut out.

April 28 – Mount Stem & Transom, Make GunwalesThe stem and transom will be mounted. From prepared gunwale stock, the workshop will make and fit the gunwales to the stem and secure them to the molds and transom.,

Preregistration is required by one week prior to the workshop date. You can register by calling the Museum at 607-569-2222 or e-mailing info@flbm.org.

Workshop fees are $35 for nonmembers, $30 for museum members and $25 for each accompanying family member.

Opening Reception and Exhibit: Student Art Show

Visitors to the Arts Center will get a preview of work being done by a new generation of artists from April 16 to April 28, during the Arts Center’s annual Student Art Show.  The two-week exhibit will highlight art created by middle and high school students in Penn Yan, Dundee and Marcus Whitman. 

 

Art teachers in all three districts have been collecting the best work done by their students throughout the year to include in this exhibit.  The yearly show generally includes drawing, painting, photography and ceramics as well as some unique and unexpected mediums.  In past years students have created work using plastic bottle caps, VHS and packing tape, and other recycled materials to name a few. 

 

Once the exhibit is hung by the district art teachers, the Arts Center recruits professional artists to judge the show, just as professional artists experience at juried art shows.  Awards are given for two-dimensional work, three-dimensional work, and photography for all three districts and an overall best of show is also chosen.  Thanks to the generosity of the district parent-teacher organizations, winners get cash prizes and are recognized at the exhibit opening, which will be held on Friday, April 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

 

“This is really an exciting show,” says Arts Center Executive Director Kris Pearson.  “Students get to see their work presented in a professional environment. Parents get to see their student’s work in a different context. Visitors get to see how assignments often stimulate very different creative responses.  Artists get to see the new generation of artists.”

 

The Student Art Show runs from April 16 to April 28.  The opening reception is Friday, April 20 from 7- 9 p.m.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Opening Reception and Exhibit: Student Art Show

Visitors to the Arts Center will get a preview of work being done by a new generation of artists from April 16 to April 28, during the Arts Center’s annual Student Art Show.  The two-week exhibit will highlight art created by middle and high school students in Penn Yan, Dundee and Marcus Whitman. 

 

Art teachers in all three districts have been collecting the best work done by their students throughout the year to include in this exhibit.  The yearly show generally includes drawing, painting, photography and ceramics as well as some unique and unexpected mediums.  In past years students have created work using plastic bottle caps, VHS and packing tape, and other recycled materials to name a few. 

 

Once the exhibit is hung by the district art teachers, the Arts Center recruits professional artists to judge the show, just as professional artists experience at juried art shows.  Awards are given for two-dimensional work, three-dimensional work, and photography for all three districts and an overall best of show is also chosen.  Thanks to the generosity of the district parent-teacher organizations, winners get cash prizes and are recognized at the exhibit opening, which will be held on Friday, April 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

 

“This is really an exciting show,” says Arts Center Executive Director Kris Pearson.  “Students get to see their work presented in a professional environment. Parents get to see their student’s work in a different context. Visitors get to see how assignments often stimulate very different creative responses.  Artists get to see the new generation of artists.”

 

The Student Art Show runs from April 16 to April 28.  The opening reception is Friday, April 20 from 7- 9 p.m.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.
