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!

Events for April 20, 2024 x
Park staff clean the cliff of winter-loosened rock from above Lucifer Falls 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 commercial-free, public access TV series produced in Ithaca by Owl Gorge Productions a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

The Bard's Birthday Bash at Atwater Vineyards
The Bard's Birthday Bash at Atwater Vineyards

Is there a better way to celebrate Shakespeare's 460th Birthday than by playing his greatest hits & raising a glass in his honor? We think’st not!!  Join us for an evening of laughs, libations and Shakespeare in performance like you’ve never experienced.  Featuring scenes from: Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo & Juliet and more.  Don’t miss this fully immersive, one night only special event! Tickets are limited so get yours today.

Presented by Shakespeare on the Fly in conjunction with Atwater Vineyards.

Doors open at 6:30 PM, curtain at 7:00 PM.  Ticket includes $1 off the first glass of wine or cocktail.

Event link: https://www.exploretock.com/atwatervineyards/event/475053/the-bards-birthday-bash

Shakespeare on the Fly:

 We are a group of professional actors highly skilled in performing Shakespeare. What brings us together is a desire to perform Shakespeare's plays in a way akin to the way they would have been performed in his day. That is - actors gather for the first time with lines already memorized and have a rehearsal called "Burbage Time" (after Shakespeare's leading player Richard Burbage) in which entrances, exits, brawls, kisses, chases & dances are established. Then we sleep on it and perform for an audience the next day. What happens is nothing short of magical - the audience and actors are working out the story together in real time. 

 

Our mission is to go into communities & delight audiences with the pleasure, vitality, and accessibility of Shakespeare's language, while simultaneously taking that audience on an exploration of the provocative human themes that exist with his plays.

Dart Brothers
Dart Brothers CD Release Pre-Party

Saturday, April 20 · 6-9pm EDT

Tickets $15 HERE, $20 at the door

Welcome to the Dart Brothers CD Release Pre-Party at the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts, Inc. (TCFA)! Join us for a night of live music, drinks, and celebration as we gear up for the official record release of their upcoming album due out this summer. This in-person event will feature intimate performances by the Dart Brothers themselves, along with stories and anecdotes around the band's history, and writing and recording of their upcoming release. They will be joined by special guest artist Rena Guinn opening the show. Come out and support local music while enjoying a fun and laid-back atmosphere. Don't miss out on this exciting evening of music and community!

A few tidbits from the band regarding their previous album, Strangest Wavelength:
"The Strangest Wavelength from The Dart Brothers, released in 2020 and nominated for Americana Record of the Year by the Syracuse Music Awards, comes through as a wonderfully powerful classic rock record that touches on Americana and Alternative Country even as songs roll on with passionate vocals and strong guitar work through and through. The Strangest Wavelength album is packed to the brim with some outstanding guitar sections that flow, and wail while vocals keep true to that country twang undertone and give the record a near perfect aesthetic. What's really cool about these songs is that they are a real display of mature songwriting from seasoned musicians and at the same time shows a ton of youthful energy. These are songs the guys had fun recording and performing and you can clearly hear that with just about every single track on the record. It kind of makes you want to see The Dart Brothers perform live."

Now is your chance to see this marvelous group perform live at TCFA. For more information about the Dart Brothers and their upcoming record, please visit: https://dartbrothers.com

Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl

Four local yarn shops are planning the third annual Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl to celebrate Local Yarn Store Day on Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 10am – 5pm.   Needlecrafters are encouraged to visit all four shops and have their Yarn Crawl Passport stamped to be eligible for prizes. The participating shops are:

·       Blossburg Company Store at 224 Main Street, Blossburg, PA

·       Fiber Arts in the Glen at 315 N. Franklin St, Watkins Glen, NY

·       Rabbit Row Yarns & Haberdashery at 24 E. Market St, Corning, NY https://www.rabbitrowyarns.com

·       Wooly Minded at 91 E. Market St, Corning, NY

The Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl is an event for knitters, crocheters, spinners and weavers to travel from store to store exploring what each has to offer and finding inspiration for new projects. Each shop is planning unique promotions, trunk shows as well as exclusive fiber products for the festivities. Participants are encouraged to check out the Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl Facebook Group for event promotions, parking, dining, and carpool information.

 “It's great fun!” Crawler Pat Jackson tells us. “Go with a friend, check out the yarn and things related to yarn, and afterward, compare your "finds".”

Knitter Ellen Kathan shares, “Last year was my first time participating in the Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl, and I had so much fun visiting each shop. The featured projects and yarns I purchased have been perfect for winter knitting.  Can’t wait for this year’s Yarn Crawl.”

And repeat Door Prize Winner, Ruth Riesbeck writes, “The Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl is a lovely way to spend a Saturday in April while supporting our local yarn shops.  I've participated in the first two crawls and have enjoyed my visits to the stores - it's not difficult to get to all four shops in one day, even if you start late!  Each shop is unique with its own personality.  I cannot say enough about the yarns that are available - they are beautiful, making decisions very, very difficult!  The shop owners have created inspiring and friendly environments to show off their yarns, supplies and other gifts.  They have something for everyone, beginners and experts alike.  I've been delighted with everything I've purchased and have been lucky enough to win some amazing door prizes!  I can't wait to be a part of this event again!”

The shop owners say, “As small business owners, we are delighted to host the Twin Tiers Yarn Crawl for the third year. Each shop showcases the immense variety of fiber products and a unique sense of community. We welcome our existing customers and encourage new fiber and needle art makers to come celebrate with us!”

 Local Yarn Store Day is an annual yarn shop appreciation day created by The National Needlearts Association (TNNA). The 2024 LYS Day is designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of enthusiasts to drive awareness and celebrate fiber craft. Vendors and retailers alike tout the benefits of locally owned yarn stores through an array of special products, classes, and more.

Park staff clean the cliff of winter-loosened rock from above Lucifer Falls 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 commercial-free, public access TV series produced in Ithaca by Owl Gorge Productions a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

Michael Foster's "Ghost" Trio + Free Workshop

The Ghost is a trio featuring John Moran (bass) and Joey Sullivan (drums), which focuses on exploring, exploiting, interrogating, and unpacking the queer potential within the free jazz tradition. The Ghost released its last record, Vanished Pleasures, on Relative Pitch Records in 2023. The Ghost has performed around the US & Canada including Artists Space (NYC), Fire Museum (Philly), Elastic Arts (Chicago), Casa del Popolo (Montreal).

Michael Foster's work as a saxophonist & curator focuses on the overlap of queer identity/theory and free improvisation within myriad experimental mediums. As a saxophonist he often employs extensive instrumental preparations (such as drum heads, vibrators, amplification, balloons, etc) in conjunction with a broad dynamic tone that draws inspiration from the saxophonic tradition of Ben Webster and Sonny Rollins. I often work with Sarah Hennies, Lydia Lunch, Leila Bordreuil, William Parker, Weasel Walter, Psychic TV, Spiritualized, Han Bennink, and countless others. As a curator, Michael has run countless series throughout NYC including Queer Trash, a curatorial platform for LGBTQIA+ artists engaged in experimental performance practices. Queer Trash was awarded the 2018 Curatorial Fellowship at Issue Project Room and has since presented work at MoMA/PS1, and countless spaces around NYC.

Wednesday May 1st 6pm @ Grayhaven Motel Michael will be giving a free workshop on Queerness in Experimental Music followed by a ticketed performance by "The Ghost" trio.

Tickets can be purchased online until April 30th for $16.25 - OR- in person at Grayhaven Motel $15 cash advance / $20 cash door

Made possible in part with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by the Community Arts Partnership and sponsorship from the Cornell Department of Music and Hound & Mare.
