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!

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. BECKY’S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

CeleBrunch: a 40th Anniversary Celebration

Brunch without bubbly is just a sad breakfast - but we've got a great reason to party. It's our 40th anniversary, and to celebrate, we're inviting everyone to travel the Trail for brunch. The wineries are whipping up some delectable brunch items paired with carefully selected wines for your sampling. Get ready for the bubbles, it's CeleBrunch!

  • April 1st and 2nd from 10am to 5pm, both days
  • 10 participating wineries
  • This event is structured like our pre-2020 events:
    • Select a specific starting winery for you and your friends to start at. (This is where you’ll receive your fluted wine glass!)
    • Travel the trail as you please after your first stop.
    • The ticket is good for BOTH days, so feel free to spread the wineries out over both days or come on just Saturday or just Sunday. (Pro-tip: Sunday tends to be a lighter day, so the wineries won’t be as crowded, which makes for an excellent time to visit and get more one-on-one attention with less waiting.)
  • Groups are limited to 12.
  • Expect diversity. Some wineries will be offering the standard bar tasting while others will be offering a sit-down experience that may take longer. Take your time during the day and enjoy both!

Tickets:

Each ticket is good for the whole weekend to visit each winery once. Single tickets are $75 (plus tax and service fee) and include:

  • 1 wine and food pairing at each winery
  • 3 additional wine tastings per winery
  • 1 recipe collection 
  • 1 souvenir fluted wine glass

Discounted designated driver tickets are also available. The DD gets all the same perks as a regular ticket, minus the wine. They also get a DD travel mug, rather than a wine glass. $37 for a single (plus tax and service fee).

By Stephen Dietz
Linda Rochelle-Director

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. BECKY’S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

By Stephen Dietz
Linda Rochelle-Director

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. BECKY’S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

Dates/times/programs/protocols subject to change.

The Inn at Taughannock Falls is expanding its restaurant profile, and introducing a revitalization of its dining program and offerings. Executive Chef Clem Coleman joined the restaurant in 2022, helping to spearhead the post-COVID initiative to open the restaurant's doors to bigger, more vibrant experiences. Combining this with the utilization of the new one-acre Enchantment Garden the restaurant hopes to give guests an unrivaled experience. Restaurant and Hotel guests are welcome to make a memory out of their time at the Inn, sitting at one of the many fire pits or the outdoor two-story wood burning fireplace, enjoying the Sonos-sound system which connects each corner of the restaurant and garden, and marveling at the cutting edge LED light system that assists in setting custom moods and tones for each event or occasion.

 

Of the tasting series, Chef Clem said  "It's such an excellent opportunity to not only showcase the diverse culinary backgrounds of our kitchen staff but also to incorporate elements and themes from the surrounding communities, and especially local farms, into these really immersive menus. We're so excited to highlight these dishes."  The Inn at Taughannock Falls re-opens for the season on March 31st and will be offering regular dinner service Fridays-Sundays from 5-9PM. Easter and Mother's Day brunches will be available 11AM-4PM as well. The restaurant will open for its full Thursday-Monday schedule in June. Direct customer reviews have earned the restaurant the OpenTable Diner's Choice Award for 2023 in the following categories: Foodies, Ambiance, Romance, Notable Wine List, and Special Occasions. The Inn at Taughannock Falls also extends special thanks to local winery operators that are assisting them with expanding their local wine portfolio for the second season in a row.

Battle of the Worlds
Sci-fi movie night at the Conservatory

Sci-fi movie night at the Conservatory

April 15 at 6:30pm. $5.00 for admission, includes a bag of popcorn, and a drink.

TCFA will present a screening of the 1961 Italian science fiction film Battle of the Worlds, directed by Anthony Dawson. The film stars Claude Rains, Bill Carter, and Maya Brent.

A rogue planet—"The Outsider"— enters the Solar System and is on a collision course with Earth. When the Outsider takes up an orbit round Earth, an expedition is launched to make a close study of the new planet and to learn something of its underground base. The phantom planet begins spiraling inward toward the Earth, creating hurricanes and storms, and the beginning of the end appears to be near. A plan is hatched to launch an all-out attack against the planet in a race against time to save Earth from total destruction!

Phil Hardy describes the film as one of the “most humorous, inventive, stylish” films in 60’s Italian science fiction

Two members of the Finger Lakes Scaling Team remove loose rock from above the Gorge Trail at Robert H. Treman State Park.
Scaling Our Gorges

Each spring, the Finger Lakes State Parks Scaling Teams rappel down cliffs over Gorge Trails, manually removing shards of shale that winter freezing has left perched on ledges. If they didn’t do this hard, dangerous work, called “scaling,” it would not be safe enough for us to walk in the gorges, for fear of falling rock. Scaling must be conducted annually in six state parks in the Finger Lakes region. In this encore episode (167) of Walk in the Park from 2017, we take a close look at the scalers at work on the high cliffs in the upper gorge of Enfield Glen in Robert H. Treman State Park near Ithaca, NY. The scalers tell us and show us what’s involved.

Two members of the Finger Lakes Scaling Team remove loose rock from above the Gorge Trail at Robert H. Treman State Park.
Scaling Our Gorges

Each spring, the Finger Lakes State Parks Scaling Teams rappel down cliffs over Gorge Trails, manually removing shards of shale that winter freezing has left perched on ledges. If they didn’t do this hard, dangerous work, called “scaling,” it would not be safe enough for us to walk in the gorges, for fear of falling rock. Scaling must be conducted annually in six state parks in the Finger Lakes region. In this encore episode (167) of Walk in the Park from 2017, we take a close look at the scalers at work on the high cliffs in the upper gorge of Enfield Glen in Robert H. Treman State Park near Ithaca, NY. The scalers tell us and show us what’s involved.

Walk in the Park is a non-commercial, public access, cable television series produced by Owl Gorge Productions, a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

The Inn at Taughannock Falls is expanding its restaurant profile, and introducing a revitalization of its dining program and offerings. Executive Chef Clem Coleman joined the restaurant in 2022, helping to spearhead the post-COVID initiative to open the restaurant's doors to bigger, more vibrant experiences. Combining this with the utilization of the new one-acre Enchantment Garden the restaurant hopes to give guests an unrivaled experience. Restaurant and Hotel guests are welcome to make a memory out of their time at the Inn, sitting at one of the many fire pits or the outdoor two-story wood burning fireplace, enjoying the Sonos-sound system which connects each corner of the restaurant and garden, and marveling at the cutting edge LED light system that assists in setting custom moods and tones for each event or occasion.

 

Of the tasting series, Chef Clem said  "It's such an excellent opportunity to not only showcase the diverse culinary backgrounds of our kitchen staff but also to incorporate elements and themes from the surrounding communities, and especially local farms, into these really immersive menus. We're so excited to highlight these dishes."  The Inn at Taughannock Falls re-opens for the season on March 31st and will be offering regular dinner service Fridays-Sundays from 5-9PM. Easter and Mother's Day brunches will be available 11AM-4PM as well. The restaurant will open for its full Thursday-Monday schedule in June. Direct customer reviews have earned the restaurant the OpenTable Diner's Choice Award for 2023 in the following categories: Foodies, Ambiance, Romance, Notable Wine List, and Special Occasions. The Inn at Taughannock Falls also extends special thanks to local winery operators that are assisting them with expanding their local wine portfolio for the second season in a row.

wine & herb event
2023 Wine & Herb Event- April Weekend

Drink. Eat. Garden. Repeat. Get a head start on your herb garden. Collect the potted herbs and veggies featured in all the food samples along with the matching recipe collection.

As you savor herb-prepared cuisine, you’ll be offered a wine that compliments that dish and be able to take home the recipes, so that you can be the highlight at your next get-together. You’ll also be offered up to 3 additional wine tastings.

  • April 29/30 and May 6/7 from 10am to 5pm, both days
  • 10 participating wineries
  • This event is structured like our pre-2020 events:
    • Select a specific starting winery for you and your friends to start at. (This is where you’ll receive your souvenir wine glass and first potted herb or vegetable plant!)
    • Travel the trail as you please after your first stop, collecting potted herbs or vegetable plants as you go.
    • The ticket is good for BOTH days, so feel free to spread the wineries out over both days or come on just Saturday or just Sunday. (Pro-tip: Sunday tends to be a lighter day, so the wineries won’t be as crowded, which makes for an excellent time to visit and get more one-on-one attention with less waiting.)
  • Groups are limited to 12.
  • Expect diversity. Some wineries will be offering the standard bar tasting while others will be offering a sit-down experience that may take longer. Take your time during the day and enjoy both!

Herbs this year are hot pepper, cilantro, dill, oregano, tomato, parsley, cauliflower, sweet pepper, basil, and Cabbage.

Tickets:

Each ticket is good for the whole weekend to visit each winery once. Single tickets are $95 and couples tickets are $140 (plus tax and service fee) and include:

  • 1 wine and food pairing at each winery, per person
  • 3 additional wine tastings per winery, per person
  • 1 potted herb or vegetable plant per ticket (1 for a single ticket, 1 for a single DD ticket, and 1 for a couples ticket)
  • 1 recipe collection per ticket
  • 1 souvenir wine glass per person

Discounted designated driver tickets are also available. The DD gets all the same perks as a regular ticket, minus the wine. They also get a DD travel mug, rather than a wine glass. $45 for a single (plus tax and service fee).

Daffodil Daze
Daffodil Daze

DAFFODIL DAZE in Candor, NY is a private property open on limited dates for the public to view tens of thousands of daffodils in bloom and/or volunteer for Operation Extend the Joy – the effort that distributes the flowers to nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, elderly housing, and others. The 2023 dates are Friday, April 28th – Sunday, May 7th, at 292 Candor Hill Road. Depending on bloom time and the number of volunteers, Share the Joy might extend into the following days.

Please note that although it was inspired by our event, the Candor Chamber of Commerce DAFFODIL FESTIVAL – featuring vendors, food, and more – is a completely separate, one-day event, held downtown at the Spencer Avenue ball field on Saturday, April 29th, 2023. We send down thousands of daffodils to the Festival so you can get a peek of the more than 250 varieties up at 292 Candor Hill Road.

Follow us on Facebook for updates on this year’s viewing and volunteering, and visit our website for more extensive background information at https://www.facebook.com/DaffodilDazeCandorNY

wine & herb event
2023 Wine & Herb Event- April Weekend

Drink. Eat. Garden. Repeat. Get a head start on your herb garden. Collect the potted herbs and veggies featured in all the food samples along with the matching recipe collection.

As you savor herb-prepared cuisine, you’ll be offered a wine that compliments that dish and be able to take home the recipes, so that you can be the highlight at your next get-together. You’ll also be offered up to 3 additional wine tastings.

  • April 29/30 and May 6/7 from 10am to 5pm, both days
  • 10 participating wineries
  • This event is structured like our pre-2020 events:
    • Select a specific starting winery for you and your friends to start at. (This is where you’ll receive your souvenir wine glass and first potted herb or vegetable plant!)
    • Travel the trail as you please after your first stop, collecting potted herbs or vegetable plants as you go.
    • The ticket is good for BOTH days, so feel free to spread the wineries out over both days or come on just Saturday or just Sunday. (Pro-tip: Sunday tends to be a lighter day, so the wineries won’t be as crowded, which makes for an excellent time to visit and get more one-on-one attention with less waiting.)
  • Groups are limited to 12.
  • Expect diversity. Some wineries will be offering the standard bar tasting while others will be offering a sit-down experience that may take longer. Take your time during the day and enjoy both!

Herbs this year are hot pepper, cilantro, dill, oregano, tomato, parsley, cauliflower, sweet pepper, basil, and Cabbage.

Tickets:

Each ticket is good for the whole weekend to visit each winery once. Single tickets are $95 and couples tickets are $140 (plus tax and service fee) and include:

  • 1 wine and food pairing at each winery, per person
  • 3 additional wine tastings per winery, per person
  • 1 potted herb or vegetable plant per ticket (1 for a single ticket, 1 for a single DD ticket, and 1 for a couples ticket)
  • 1 recipe collection per ticket
  • 1 souvenir wine glass per person

Discounted designated driver tickets are also available. The DD gets all the same perks as a regular ticket, minus the wine. They also get a DD travel mug, rather than a wine glass. $45 for a single (plus tax and service fee).
