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!

Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic

Through his writings, curatorial practice, teaching, photographs, and photobooks, Nathan Lyons (1930-2016) had a tremendous impact on the history and practice of photography for more than sixty years. His work as a writer and curator has been widely celebrated, but his own art is less well known, despite its formal acuity and conceptual rigor. Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic demonstrates that he practiced what he preached—not only in the black-and-white images he sequenced and reproduced in his photobooks, but also in his final body of work. These last photographs, created in the decade before he died, are color images made with a digital camera and presented as inkjet prints. This exhibition represents the public’s first opportunity to see that work in tandem with selected photographs from his earlier bodies of work.

One of the primary features of Lyons’s work is his use of juxtapositions and sequencing as a core tenet of visual language, and he strongly believed in visual literacy as the key to navigating modern social life. His color work brings his vision full circle, providing a platform for discussion about the overwhelming presence of images and advertising in contemporary life. Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic details his vision and demonstrates its relevance for a new, visually sophisticated audience.

The George Eastman Museum has invited Nate Larson (American, b. 1978) and Marni Shindelman (American, b. 1977) to create a body of work specific to Rochester, New York. The artists, who work collectively as Larson Shindelman, are known for their series Geolocation, which transforms ephemeral bits of data into photographs and immersive installations. In this series, they use publicly available GPS information embedded in social media to track the location of user posts and then travel to the location to create a photograph that both marks the physical place and reacts to the content of the original post. Their work prompts discussions about social media, public and private information, and social issues surrounding race relations, gun violence, and the right to protest.

For this exhibition, Larson Shindelman have addedd to their Geolocation photographs by drawing from trending hashtags in Rochester to identify themes relevant to the community. They visited Rochester in the summer of 2018, creating the new body of work that will be displayed. This new work furthers their examination of how smartphones have contributed to a new era of social justice, including citizen journalism, information sharing, and community protest by exploring themes of racial discrimination, violence, right to protest, gun violence, police relations, political activism, and other social concerns.

The King and I
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s THE KING AND I

Elmira Savings Bank Broadway Series 
2018-2019 Season at the Clemens Center
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s
THE KING AND I

Two worlds collide in this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, based on the 2015 Tony Award®-winning Lincoln Center Theater production. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.”

Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. THE KING AND I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte’s Web – Sensory-Friendly Performance

John G. Ullman & Associates Foundation, Inc.
Family Connection Series presents
CHARLOTTE’S WEB – Sensory-Friendly Performance

Charlotte’s Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman. She will create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig but also ensures his place on the farm forever.

This treasured tale, featuring mad-cap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship.

This 60-minute Sensory-Friendly performance is for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders or any sensory or social cognitive disorders. Seating will be limited.

Adjustments to the production include:
• consistent sound volume,

• house lights dimmed (but not off),
• no strobes or flashing lights,
• explanation of what will be seen and heard,
• quiet areas in the venue,
• fidgets welcome,
• audience encouraged to talk and react,
• ability to leave your seats.

Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic

Through his writings, curatorial practice, teaching, photographs, and photobooks, Nathan Lyons (1930-2016) had a tremendous impact on the history and practice of photography for more than sixty years. His work as a writer and curator has been widely celebrated, but his own art is less well known, despite its formal acuity and conceptual rigor. Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic demonstrates that he practiced what he preached—not only in the black-and-white images he sequenced and reproduced in his photobooks, but also in his final body of work. These last photographs, created in the decade before he died, are color images made with a digital camera and presented as inkjet prints. This exhibition represents the public’s first opportunity to see that work in tandem with selected photographs from his earlier bodies of work.

One of the primary features of Lyons’s work is his use of juxtapositions and sequencing as a core tenet of visual language, and he strongly believed in visual literacy as the key to navigating modern social life. His color work brings his vision full circle, providing a platform for discussion about the overwhelming presence of images and advertising in contemporary life. Nathan Lyons: In Pursuit of Magic details his vision and demonstrates its relevance for a new, visually sophisticated audience.

The George Eastman Museum has invited Nate Larson (American, b. 1978) and Marni Shindelman (American, b. 1977) to create a body of work specific to Rochester, New York. The artists, who work collectively as Larson Shindelman, are known for their series Geolocation, which transforms ephemeral bits of data into photographs and immersive installations. In this series, they use publicly available GPS information embedded in social media to track the location of user posts and then travel to the location to create a photograph that both marks the physical place and reacts to the content of the original post. Their work prompts discussions about social media, public and private information, and social issues surrounding race relations, gun violence, and the right to protest.

For this exhibition, Larson Shindelman have addedd to their Geolocation photographs by drawing from trending hashtags in Rochester to identify themes relevant to the community. They visited Rochester in the summer of 2018, creating the new body of work that will be displayed. This new work furthers their examination of how smartphones have contributed to a new era of social justice, including citizen journalism, information sharing, and community protest by exploring themes of racial discrimination, violence, right to protest, gun violence, police relations, political activism, and other social concerns.

The George Eastman Museum has invited Nate Larson (American, b. 1978) and Marni Shindelman (American, b. 1977) to create a body of work specific to Rochester, New York. The artists, who work collectively as Larson Shindelman, are known for their series Geolocation, which transforms ephemeral bits of data into photographs and immersive installations. In this series, they use publicly available GPS information embedded in social media to track the location of user posts and then travel to the location to create a photograph that both marks the physical place and reacts to the content of the original post. Their work prompts discussions about social media, public and private information, and social issues surrounding race relations, gun violence, and the right to protest.

For this exhibition, Larson Shindelman have addedd to their Geolocation photographs by drawing from trending hashtags in Rochester to identify themes relevant to the community. They visited Rochester in the summer of 2018, creating the new body of work that will be displayed. This new work furthers their examination of how smartphones have contributed to a new era of social justice, including citizen journalism, information sharing, and community protest by exploring themes of racial discrimination, violence, right to protest, gun violence, police relations, political activism, and other social concerns.

A Clemens Center Mary Tripp Marks School-Time Series production performed by Theatreworks/USA

PETE THE CAT

When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners – and boy are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth. As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus.

The George Eastman Museum has invited Nate Larson (American, b. 1978) and Marni Shindelman (American, b. 1977) to create a body of work specific to Rochester, New York. The artists, who work collectively as Larson Shindelman, are known for their series Geolocation, which transforms ephemeral bits of data into photographs and immersive installations. In this series, they use publicly available GPS information embedded in social media to track the location of user posts and then travel to the location to create a photograph that both marks the physical place and reacts to the content of the original post. Their work prompts discussions about social media, public and private information, and social issues surrounding race relations, gun violence, and the right to protest.

For this exhibition, Larson Shindelman have addedd to their Geolocation photographs by drawing from trending hashtags in Rochester to identify themes relevant to the community. They visited Rochester in the summer of 2018, creating the new body of work that will be displayed. This new work furthers their examination of how smartphones have contributed to a new era of social justice, including citizen journalism, information sharing, and community protest by exploring themes of racial discrimination, violence, right to protest, gun violence, police relations, political activism, and other social concerns.
