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!

Quilts=Art=Quilts

The 39th annual “Quilts=Art=Quilts” exhibition is currently on display at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn. But someone unfamiliar with fiber arts would be surprised by the quilts’ appearance. These are art quilts, a genre of quilts designed to hang on walls instead of covering beds.

Schweinfurth Art Museum - Quilt Show
Quilts=Art=Quilts

The 39th annual “Quilts=Art=Quilts” exhibition is currently on display at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn. But someone unfamiliar with fiber arts would be surprised by the quilts’ appearance. These are art quilts, a genre of quilts designed to hang on walls instead of covering beds.

Auburn's Schweinfurth Art Center Annual Quilt Exhibition

The Schweinfurth Art Center's annual Quilts=Art=Quilts exhibition is opening at the end of October and, with it, a weekend of events for quilters.

Quilts=Art=Quilts is an annual juried quilt exhibition that has been held annually since the art center opened in 1981. Each year, the exhibit attracts competitive entries from some of the world's leading quilt makers and fiber artists. The 2019 version features 73 quilts from 64 artists.

While most of the quilts were made by U.S. artists, six pieces are by international artists who hail from Australia, Canada, England, and South Korea. QAQ 2019 will be on display from Oct. 26, 2019, through Jan. 5, 2020.

Jurors for the exhibition were Claire Benn, one of the United Kingdom's leading mixed media and textile artists, and Petra Fallaux, a Dutch native who creates and teaches textile arts, writes, and curates textile exhibitions.

Quilters' Weekend begins on Wednesday, Oct. 23, with the start of a four-day Studio Schweinfurth workshop, "On Your Mark - Print!," taught by Rochester artist Pat Pauly. Registration is required for the workshop, which costs $520 for Schweinfurth members and $530 for nonmembers.

About Great Western…in March 1871, Charles Champlin, one of the 13 founders of the Pleasant Valley Wine Company, sent a case of champagne to his close friend Marshall P. Wilder, a well-known wine connoisseur in Boston.  Wilder declared it to be “the Great Champagne of the Western World.”  Great Western Champagne was born.

Today, after nearly 150 years of continuous production in Hammondsport, New York, Great Western is America’s most glorious champagne.

Great Western was the first American champagne to win a medal in a major European competition.

In the early twentieth century, Great Western reportedly sold more champagne than all of the French houses combined.  Great Western has enhanced the wine lists of the most prestigious American hotels and restaurants.

Great Western was the official champagne of the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction in Cooperstown and has been a part of celebrations by the great teams in sports including the New York Yankees, the New York Mets and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

During the Reagan Administration, Great Western Presidential Seal Champagne splits were featured on Air Force One, Marine One, in the White Hall Mess, at Camp David and in the President’s box at the Kennedy Center in Washington.

Great Western Champagne has been the official champagne of Watkins Glen International, one of America’s great road racing courses, for more than 50 years.  Iconic drivers such as Jacky Ickx, Jackie Stewart, Derek Bell and Jeff Gordon have enjoyed Great Western in the winners circle after hard-fought triumphs at the Glen.

Great Western Champagne is the official champagne of the National Women’s Hall of Fame Induction held every two years in Seneca Falls, New York and the New York Writers Hall of Fame Induction held annually in New York City.

The family-owned Great Western Winery in the Finger Lakes of New York is the largest producer of bottle-fermented champagnes in the eastern United States and is proud to be home to Great Western, the most honored American champagne.
