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!

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.

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.

ABOUT THE RMSC COUNCIL

RMSC Council was initiated in 1941 when several Rochester women decided to form a Women’s Council for social interaction and fundraising support for the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception 80 years ago, RMSC Council has proudly donated close to $2.8 million to RMSC through creative and invaluable fundraising efforts.

Brenna O'Toole's Evening Light
Art Installation: Brenna O'Toole

On display in the Tasting Room for all of May and June!

Don’t miss Brenna’s reception on May 5th from 5:30-7:30pm.

Brenna O’Toole is a pastel painter and calligrapher who lives and works in Ithaca, New York. She is inspired by the natural world, and she seeks to capture ephemeral moments of beauty in her paintings.

Brenna’s primary focus is landscapes; she loves to explore the world around her through art. Reflections on water, the interplay between light and shadow, the ever-changing sky — all of these are deep wells of inspiration, and she never tires of them. Brenna has a strong affinity for soft pastels. Expressing the shapes created by light feels natural with the medium, and it is always a joy to discover the right colors for each piece.

Brenna lives with her husband, Al, and they enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors. Almost all of her reference material comes from hikes or walks they’ve taken together. She grew up in Webster, New York, received a BA in Studio Art, and lived in Ithaca for a short time before moving downstate. Her paintings have been shown in several galleries and venues across the state, from the Adirondacks to the Hudson Valley, where she lived until 2020 upended the world. She is amazed and grateful to be back in the Finger Lakes.

“A high-energy… hymn to the glories of girlishness.” – The New York Times

OMG you guys!!! Legally Blonde – The Musical is coming to the Clemens Center!

Fabulously fun and international award-winning Legally Blonde – The Musical is the ultimate Broadway tribute to Girl Power! The story follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, sexism, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams, and proves that you can be legally blonde and STILL the smartest person in the room. This contemporary, sassy musical moves at a breakneck pace driven by memorable songs and explosive dances. Legally Blonde – The Musical warms the heart by proving that self-discovery can be way too much fun and hilarious to boot.

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down, however, when her boyfriend dumps her so he can start getting more serious about his life and attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle uses her ingenuity and charm to get into Harvard too. School begins with endless struggles, but with the help of her new friends, Elle quickly realizes her potential, and her true assets, as she sets out to prove herself to the world and make everyone a believer.

Based on the beloved movie, Legally Blonde – The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with Broadway’s brightest new heroine and, of course, her Chihuahua, Bruiser.

Opening Day at Genesee Country Village & Museum
Opening Day Of The 2023 Season

Mark your calendars for the very first day of our 2023 season!

We can’t wait to welcome you back in 2023! Plan ahead to visit us next season and explore our 19th-century Historic Village, learn about sporting art, fashion, and culture in the John L. Wehle Gallery, enjoy a historic craft beer in the Freight House Pub, hike our nature trails, attend exciting special events, and so much more.

When you visit us on Opening Day, you’ll be able to chat with our knowledgeable costumed interpreters who keep the hearth fires burning, the heirloom gardens flourishing, and the livestock tended. You’ll hear the clanging of the blacksmith’s hammer, smell the aroma of fresh-baked treats, and truly experience life in the 19th century. Interpreters — including cooks and craftspeople — will be demonstrating their talents all day! Wander down to the farm to meet the animals, see what’s cooking at the Pioneer Farmstead, and so much more.

Make sure to visit the John L. Wehle Gallery when you visit on this special weekend to explore “Becoming Gendered: Garment as Gender Artifact,” our brand new exhibition for 2023! And don’t forget, “Duck, Duck, Shoot! The Story of American Waterbirds,” is still on view throughout the 2023 season. 

Enjoy a premier shopping experience when you visit Genesee Country Village & Museum’s Flint Hill Store, located adjacent to the admissions tunnel. From handcrafted goods made right here in the Historic Village, to treats and sweets, Museum apparel, local art, decor, and more, there’s something for everyone in the Flint Hill Store!

ADVANCED BLACKSMITHING | $80

Sunday, April 30 | 3:00pm
Saturday, May 6 | 3:00pm

Advanced blacksmithing introduces the student to the art of knife making using a railroad spike to create the wider form of a skinning blade.  Topics will include the use of the cross peen fuller to draw out the width of the blade as well as quench or case hardening to form a simple working edge.  This 2.5 hour class will test the endurance of a student who has either taken the intermediate class or has prior experience in bladesmithing.

wine and herb event
2023 Wine & Herb Event- May 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).
