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!

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Fall, Fire & Wine
Oktoberfest at Radisson Hotel Corning

Oktoberfest in Germany may be canceled this year due to Coronavirus, but the Gateway to the Southern Finger Lakes, Radisson Hotel Corning, is keeping the tradition going with some socially-distanced events for the public taking place now through the end of next month.  The historic hotel in the heart of the downtown Gaffer District proudly presents the following at its two restaurant venues: 

Fall, Fire & Wine
Guests of Radisson’s outdoor dining and entertainment destination, Market Street Social, are invited to round up family or friends and cozy up to Fall, Fire & Wine in celebration of Oktoberfest.  Along with free charcuterie boards and 25%-off the first bottle of wine, parties of 6 to 10 who reserve one of Market Street Social’s three private fire pits (reservations can be made by calling 607-962-5000 ext 112) are encouraged to bring their blankets, throws or favorite canine friend and partake in this inaugural autumn.  Pits are available any day of the week now through the end of October from either 5:30p-7:30p or 8p-10p with a $25 non-refundable deposit.  

Oktoberfest Menus
Both Market Street Social and Grill 1-2-5, Radisson’s indoor signature restaurant, are rolling out special menu offerings (in addition to their regular menus) in celebration of the start and finish of Oktoberfest.  

Kicking things off September 15 to September 19, those looking for an authentic taste of Germany can stop by either venue and enjoy:  Bratwurst – in beer with onions served with German potato salad; Jägerschnitzel – thinly sliced pork loin, breaded and pan fried and smothered with rich brown creamy mushroom sauce and served with spatzle; Beschwipster Huhn (Drunken Chicken) – chicken thighs stewed with vegetables in a rich sauce with red wine topped with white asparagus tips and peas; Sauerbraten – braised beef round with a rich sour beef sauce spiked with gingersnaps and served with braised red cabbage; Bavarian Cream with raspberry gelee; Warm Apple Cake; or Black Forest Torte with Kirshwasser.  

Then, on October 6 to 10, Smoketoberfest – an Oktoberfest finale – will wrap things up by giving fans of smoked foods a smokin’ hot menu dedicated to creative smoked dishes and smoked drinks.  

Radisson Hotel Corning complies with all COVID-19 health and safety regulations to protect customers and staff, including tables distanced at least 6-feet apart and mandatory mask-wearing inside the hotel when not seated.

He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.

Oktoberfest at Radisson Hotel Corning

Oktoberfest in Germany may be canceled this year due to Coronavirus, but the Gateway to the Southern Finger Lakes, Radisson Hotel Corning, is keeping the tradition going with some socially-distanced events for the public taking place now through the end of next month.  The historic hotel in the heart of the downtown Gaffer District proudly presents the following at its two restaurant venues: 

Fall, Fire & Wine
Guests of Radisson’s outdoor dining and entertainment destination, Market Street Social, are invited to round up family or friends and cozy up to Fall, Fire & Wine in celebration of Oktoberfest.  Along with free charcuterie boards and 25%-off the first bottle of wine, parties of 6 to 10 who reserve one of Market Street Social’s three private fire pits (reservations can be made by calling 607-962-5000 ext 112) are encouraged to bring their blankets, throws or favorite canine friend and partake in this inaugural autumn.  Pits are available any day of the week now through the end of October from either 5:30p-7:30p or 8p-10p with a $25 non-refundable deposit.  

Oktoberfest Menus
Both Market Street Social and Grill 1-2-5, Radisson’s indoor signature restaurant, are rolling out special menu offerings (in addition to their regular menus) in celebration of the start and finish of Oktoberfest.  

Kicking things off September 15 to September 19, those looking for an authentic taste of Germany can stop by either venue and enjoy:  Bratwurst – in beer with onions served with German potato salad; Jägerschnitzel – thinly sliced pork loin, breaded and pan fried and smothered with rich brown creamy mushroom sauce and served with spatzle; Beschwipster Huhn (Drunken Chicken) – chicken thighs stewed with vegetables in a rich sauce with red wine topped with white asparagus tips and peas; Sauerbraten – braised beef round with a rich sour beef sauce spiked with gingersnaps and served with braised red cabbage; Bavarian Cream with raspberry gelee; Warm Apple Cake; or Black Forest Torte with Kirshwasser.  

Then, on October 6 to 10, Smoketoberfest – an Oktoberfest finale – will wrap things up by giving fans of smoked foods a smokin’ hot menu dedicated to creative smoked dishes and smoked drinks.  

Radisson Hotel Corning complies with all COVID-19 health and safety regulations to protect customers and staff, including tables distanced at least 6-feet apart and mandatory mask-wearing inside the hotel when not seated.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival is ON, Reimagined for 2020

TIL SAT SEPT 26:  Organizers of the 2020 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival announce that their ninth annual festival will take place as planned on Tuesday, September 15 – Saturday, September 26, but major changes are required in order to address public health and safety concerns during the continued threat of COVID-19.

“Most important is that the festival be delivered in a safe manner,” explains Festival Producer Erica Fee. “We love our performers and our audience members and we will do all that it takes to keep everyone safe and healthy this year, so that we can enjoy in-person festivals in future years."

Due to the known threat of an aerosolized virus being transmitted indoors, the Fringe is moving the majority of its shows online. Many other large 2020 fringe festivals have done the same, including Orlando, Minnesota and CincyFringe, often finding great success in attracting national and international shows to which their audiences wouldn’t have access otherwise.

“Among other benefits, the arts provide a platform for voices to be heard and allow communities to address difficult issues,” says Fee. “We needed to make sure that this platform exists this year in one way or another.”

To that end, the festival will feature a new, open-access, online Virtual Fringe, applications for which will run June 18 – July 31 at rochesterfringe.com. Shows that have previously applied for the 2020 in-person festival and are interested in virtual participation can simply log into their current applications and answer some additional questions.

“We at KeyBank are very proud to sponsor the Fringe, which has become an integral part of our community and a renowned celebration of the arts,” says Phil Muscato, KeyBank Rochester Market President. “The virtual performances featured in this year’s festival will be a wonderful celebration of Rochester’s creative spirit and will continue to bring incredible energy and notoriety to our great city.”

The festival itself will also curate some safely-enjoyed outdoor and drive-in shows, to be announced at a Virtual BIG REVEAL in August.

“Our mission remains the same: to provide platforms for artists and to make the arts readily accessible to audiences,” Fee adds. “We have all seen artists rise to the challenge of this pandemic, and I hope that they – and audiences – will be excited by this opportunity for even more creative exploration.”

The 12-day 2019 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival featured more than 650 performances and events – over 200 of them free – and broke all previous attendance records with more than 100,000 visitors.

From its five-day debut in 2012, the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival has become one of the fastest-growing and most-attended fringe festivals in the U.S.  It is also the largest multi-arts festival in New York State. As a bifurcated festival, it allows for a combination of headline entertainment curated by the non-profit Rochester Fringe Festival as well as an open-access portion programmed by the venues themselves. Renowned among the world’s 200+ fringe festivals for its spectacular, outdoor, free events as well as its large number of free performances in general, Rochester’s Fringe was also the first in North America to feature a Spiegeltent. From comedy to theatre, from music to dance, from visual art and film to spoken word, and from children’s entertainment to multi-disciplinary collaborations, the festival’s diversity also extends to venues that span the gamut from parked cars to grand theatres.

 

Rochester Fringe Festival connects and empowers artists, audiences, venues, educational institutions, and the community to celebrate, explore, and inspire creativity via an annual, multi-genre arts festival. It was pioneered by several of Rochester’s esteemed cultural institutions including Geva Theatre Center, the George Eastman House and Garth Fagan Dance; up-and-coming arts groups like PUSH Physical Theatre and Method Machine; and higher-education partners such as the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology. The organization’s overarching mission is to make arts readily accessible to audiences, as well as to provide a platform for artists to share their ideas and develop their skills, while stimulating downtown Rochester both culturally and economically.

 

2020 sponsors include: KeyBank; New York State Council on the Arts; University of Rochester; RIT; Rochester Area Community Foundation; Ames Amzalak Memorial Trust; National Endowment for the Arts; Daisy Marquis Jones Foundation; Cultural Services of the French Embassy; Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation; Hyatt Regency Rochester; The Pike Company; Louis S. & Molly B. Wolk Foundation; Big Slide Creative; 13WHAM TV; CITY Newspaper, D&C Digital; McCarthy Tents & Events; Nazareth College; SUNY Brockport; St. John Fisher College; The Rubens Family Foundation; Hamilton A/V; House of Guitars; City Blue; Yelp!; WXXI; KidsOutandAbout.com; Mary Cariola Children’s Center; Canandaigua National Bank; YMCA of Greater Rochester;  and Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC.

Guests of Radisson’s outdoor dining and entertainment destination, Market Street Social, are invited to round up family or friends and cozy up to Fall, Fire & Wine in celebration of Oktoberfest.  Along with free charcuterie boards and 25%-off the first bottle of wine, parties of 6 to 10 who reserve one of Market Street Social’s three private fire pits (reservations can be made by calling 607-962-5000 ext 112) are encouraged to bring their blankets, throws or favorite canine friend and partake in this inaugural autumn.  Pits are available any day of the week now through the end of October from either 5:30p-7:30p or 8p-10p with a $25 non-refundable deposit.  

Oktoberfest Menus
Both Market Street Social and Grill 1-2-5, Radisson’s indoor signature restaurant, are rolling out special menu offerings (in addition to their regular menus) in celebration of the start and finish of Oktoberfest.  

Kicking things off September 15 to September 19, those looking for an authentic taste of Germany can stop by either venue and enjoy:  Bratwurst – in beer with onions served with German potato salad; Jägerschnitzel – thinly sliced pork loin, breaded and pan fried and smothered with rich brown creamy mushroom sauce and served with spatzle; Beschwipster Huhn (Drunken Chicken) – chicken thighs stewed with vegetables in a rich sauce with red wine topped with white asparagus tips and peas; Sauerbraten – braised beef round with a rich sour beef sauce spiked with gingersnaps and served with braised red cabbage; Bavarian Cream with raspberry gelee; Warm Apple Cake; or Black Forest Torte with Kirshwasser.  

Then, on October 6 to 10, Smoketoberfest – an Oktoberfest finale – will wrap things up by giving fans of smoked foods a smokin’ hot menu dedicated to creative smoked dishes and smoked drinks.  

Radisson Hotel Corning complies with all COVID-19 health and safety regulations to protect customers and staff, including tables distanced at least 6-feet apart and mandatory mask-wearing inside the hotel when not seated.

Quilted Art Exhibit suspended from ceiling
All Things Being Blue

Anna Warfield's exhibit will consist of stitched, stuffed didactic poems and commands that are confrontational, mesmerizing and frightening. Her work veers between dead serious and casual.

This exhibit is part of the Central New York Emerging Artist Project in conjunction with the Cayuga Musuem. Anna's work will be on display in both the Cayuga and Gallery Julius at the Scwheinfurth. She is interested in using the juxtaposition of spaces between the Schweinfurth and the Cayuga Musuem to highlight didactic polarities in her work. 

She states: "My practice is driven by the juxtaposition of ideas, themes, textures and physical spaces. Soft Thorn, a recent body of work, consists of soft-sculptural poems. The work is aspirationally frank. The pieces address complexities in sexuality, female ownership of self, language and voice, with an underlying sexualization of speech. I catch and hold attention by moving text off the page and into the oversized, dimensional world of soft sculpture. The work broadcasts its intentions, summarizes memories, and demands conversations with a single other person; it’s intimate, personal, political."

KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival is ON, Reimagined for 2020

TIL SAT SEPT 26:  Organizers of the 2020 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival announce that their ninth annual festival will take place as planned on Tuesday, September 15 – Saturday, September 26, but major changes are required in order to address public health and safety concerns during the continued threat of COVID-19.

“Most important is that the festival be delivered in a safe manner,” explains Festival Producer Erica Fee. “We love our performers and our audience members and we will do all that it takes to keep everyone safe and healthy this year, so that we can enjoy in-person festivals in future years."

Due to the known threat of an aerosolized virus being transmitted indoors, the Fringe is moving the majority of its shows online. Many other large 2020 fringe festivals have done the same, including Orlando, Minnesota and CincyFringe, often finding great success in attracting national and international shows to which their audiences wouldn’t have access otherwise.

“Among other benefits, the arts provide a platform for voices to be heard and allow communities to address difficult issues,” says Fee. “We needed to make sure that this platform exists this year in one way or another.”

To that end, the festival will feature a new, open-access, online Virtual Fringe, applications for which will run June 18 – July 31 at rochesterfringe.com. Shows that have previously applied for the 2020 in-person festival and are interested in virtual participation can simply log into their current applications and answer some additional questions.

“We at KeyBank are very proud to sponsor the Fringe, which has become an integral part of our community and a renowned celebration of the arts,” says Phil Muscato, KeyBank Rochester Market President. “The virtual performances featured in this year’s festival will be a wonderful celebration of Rochester’s creative spirit and will continue to bring incredible energy and notoriety to our great city.”

The festival itself will also curate some safely-enjoyed outdoor and drive-in shows, to be announced at a Virtual BIG REVEAL in August.

“Our mission remains the same: to provide platforms for artists and to make the arts readily accessible to audiences,” Fee adds. “We have all seen artists rise to the challenge of this pandemic, and I hope that they – and audiences – will be excited by this opportunity for even more creative exploration.”

The 12-day 2019 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival featured more than 650 performances and events – over 200 of them free – and broke all previous attendance records with more than 100,000 visitors.

From its five-day debut in 2012, the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival has become one of the fastest-growing and most-attended fringe festivals in the U.S.  It is also the largest multi-arts festival in New York State. As a bifurcated festival, it allows for a combination of headline entertainment curated by the non-profit Rochester Fringe Festival as well as an open-access portion programmed by the venues themselves. Renowned among the world’s 200+ fringe festivals for its spectacular, outdoor, free events as well as its large number of free performances in general, Rochester’s Fringe was also the first in North America to feature a Spiegeltent. From comedy to theatre, from music to dance, from visual art and film to spoken word, and from children’s entertainment to multi-disciplinary collaborations, the festival’s diversity also extends to venues that span the gamut from parked cars to grand theatres.

 

Rochester Fringe Festival connects and empowers artists, audiences, venues, educational institutions, and the community to celebrate, explore, and inspire creativity via an annual, multi-genre arts festival. It was pioneered by several of Rochester’s esteemed cultural institutions including Geva Theatre Center, the George Eastman House and Garth Fagan Dance; up-and-coming arts groups like PUSH Physical Theatre and Method Machine; and higher-education partners such as the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology. The organization’s overarching mission is to make arts readily accessible to audiences, as well as to provide a platform for artists to share their ideas and develop their skills, while stimulating downtown Rochester both culturally and economically.

 

2020 sponsors include: KeyBank; New York State Council on the Arts; University of Rochester; RIT; Rochester Area Community Foundation; Ames Amzalak Memorial Trust; National Endowment for the Arts; Daisy Marquis Jones Foundation; Cultural Services of the French Embassy; Max and Marian Farash Charitable Foundation; Hyatt Regency Rochester; The Pike Company; Louis S. & Molly B. Wolk Foundation; Big Slide Creative; 13WHAM TV; CITY Newspaper, D&C Digital; McCarthy Tents & Events; Nazareth College; SUNY Brockport; St. John Fisher College; The Rubens Family Foundation; Hamilton A/V; House of Guitars; City Blue; Yelp!; WXXI; KidsOutandAbout.com; Mary Cariola Children’s Center; Canandaigua National Bank; YMCA of Greater Rochester;  and Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC.

Quarantined Studio Visit Series

Join us virtually in the studios of artists from all over the country. Artists' studio spaces can be as creatively designed as their own artwork, whether they are at home, in another location, or even just at a desk. This video series is interested in the places where art is made.  

Our first Studio Visit is with San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham: Joe has been making quilts, writing about quilts, talking about quilts, and teaching quilt making since 1979. He has been widely published and has had his quilts shown and acquired by major museums. Building from an understanding of traditional quilts, Cunningham has found a way to express his ideas in original quilt terms. He has been featured on the PBS program Craft in America, and continues to travel widely to teach and lecture.
