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!

2024 Wine & Herb Event- May Weekend

Drink. Eat. Garden. Repeat. Jumpstart your herb garden by gathering potted herbs and veggies showcased in our delectable food samples, complete with a matching recipe collection.

Indulge in herb-infused dishes and discover the perfect wine pairing for each. Take home the recipes, ensuring you'll shine as the star chef at your next gathering. Plus, enjoy up to three additional wine tastings to complete your delightful experience.

  • April 27/28 and May 4/5 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 Basil, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cilantro, Cherokee Purple Tomato, Dill, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary, and Sweet Banana Pepper..

Tickets:

Each ticket is good for the whole weekend to visit each winery once. Single tickets are $65 and couples tickets are $95 (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).

Join us for a spectacular evening of music as the Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes presents “A Grand Gershwin Celebration.” Showcasing three American composers, this concert promises to captivate as it begins with local composer Robert Dusek’s energetic and powerful Leviathan followed by Nkeiru Okoye’s poignant Voices Shouting Out which was written as a response to the 9-11 tragedy, calling for national optimism in the midst of profound challenges. Finally, two masterful works by George Gershwin will take center stage in this unforgettable performance.

As we commemorate the 100th anniversary of George Gershwin’s iconic masterpiece, Rhapsody in Blue, the audience will be transported to the dazzling streets of 1920s New York City, where jazz and classical music harmoniously collide. Accompanied by the virtuosic pianist Bryan Pezzone (LA recording and performing artist), this rendition guarantees to offer an unforgettable experience.

On the second half of the concert, we invite you to revel in the timeless beauty of Porgy and Bess – A Concert of Songs by George Gershwin, performed by soprano Dimery Alexis and baritone Fredd Redd. As the Chorus of the Southern Finger Lakes add their harmonious voices to the mix, this enchanting evening promises to be a grand celebration of Gershwin’s enduring musical legacy that you won’t want to miss.

Get your tickets today and prepare to be swept away by the magic of this extraordinary concert!

Redbud and dogwood bloom at Robert H. Treman State Park in Ithaca NY.
Paying it Forward in Parks

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the New York State Park system, and we are celebrating it locally! Robert H. Treman State Park itself was opened to the public a century ago, and Buttermilk Falls State Park was established in 1924 as well.

The Friends of Robert H. Treman State Park (Tremanparkfriends.org) have worked with Finger Lakes State Parks education/interpretation staff to produce exhibits about state parks in Tompkins County and the Finger Lakes Region in the atrium of the Tompkins Center for History and Culture (tompkins-center.net) on the Ithaca Commons. Come on down and explore the displays and short videos, including a life-sized image of Robert H. Treman, benefactor and leader in the creation of our state parks in Tompkins County and throughout the region, as well as other local parks and preserves. We take a brief tour of the exhibits in this episode (#260) of Walk in the Park (Walkinthepark.tv)

Also on May 4, hundreds of volunteers across the state pitched in on “I Love My Park Day” to help prepare parks for this season and for generations to come. We go to Robert H. Treman State Park to see what was happening there, including interviews with Park Supervisor Cassie Lovelace, Park Manager Jim Brophy, and Finger Lakes State Park Regional Director Fred Bonn. I Love My Park Day is coordinated by Parks & Trails NY (ptny.org).

Walk in the Park is a non-commercial, public access, cable TV series shown on channel 13 in the Ithaca, NY area.

Finished stone wall at Hunt Country Vineyards
The Ancient Art of Dry Laid Stone with DJ Kitzel - MAY 2024

Date & Time:

Saturday, May 18 & Sunday, May 19, 2024:  9:00am-4:00pm

Registration:

$300 per person - Includes morning pastry, lunch, a glass of wine, & instruction, both days.
PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED: No walk-ins. Space limited to 14 students.

   We are so pleased to team up with DJ Kitzel for yet another season of stonemasonry workshops here at Hunt Country Vineyards.

   DJ is  a natural instructor and sharer of talent, creativity, and skills.  A truly unique weekend workshop having fun learning from this talented stone mason, teacher, artist, and renaissance man.

   A combination of some great outdoor learning, comradery & tinkering with ancient stones.  All accompanied by delicious locally catered lunches, outstanding Hunt Country wines, & gorgeous vineyard scenery.

Dry Laid Stone: 

Dry-laid stonework is the ancient art of building with stone without the use of mortar.  Common in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world, it is becoming increasingly popular in North America in functional hardscapes.  This two-day course is designed to be a primer in the contemporary skills and applications of this timeless trade.  Currently, there are few dry-laid stone workers in the Finger Lakes and demand is growing.

This course will be a hands-on experience of dry-laid wall construction.  This class will build on skills learned in previous workshops.  Beginners are welcome, but this will be a more challenging build than in previous workshops, in terms of design and precision.  Students who complete the course will be able to build free-standing stone walls, retaining walls, foundations, walkways and stairs.  Hands-on learning will be mixed with direct instruction, discussion and working lunches.  Participants will learn the tools, techniques, materials and traditions of this accessible art form.

This portable skill set is in demand by landscapers and builders alike.  The trade requires few tools to get started.  Other benefits of dry-laid stonework include personal creativity, fitness, and a deep connection to an ancient human experience.

There will be a tent on site to protect participants from sun and rain.  All tools and materials will be provided.  Participants should dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes. Sunscreen, sun hat and a water bottle are recommended. You are also welcome to bring safety glasses, work gloves and any personal tools.

Instructor:

D.J. Kitzel is a stonemason, certified English teacher, and licensed wilderness guide with 34+ years of experience in the building trades, including masonry.  He has worked on historic structures and new builds across Rochester and the Finger Lakes region while pursuing a life-long interest in these traditional trades.   

Program: 

Saturday morning will include introductions, course overview, expectations, and safety.  Getting right into the project by 10am and throughout Saturday and Sunday.  Instruction will be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on work to construct a functional wall.  D.J. will provide instruction, all tools needed, and work songs.

Food: 

BREAKFAST:
- There will be local pastry, coffee, and tea available upon your arrival both mornings. 
- However, we encourage you to eat a hearty breakfast ahead of arrival, as you will be working hard all morning.  

LUNCH: 
- Locally catered lunches will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. 

SNACKS, HYDRATION, & WINE: 
- There are picnic items available to purchase in our tasting room, but please feel free to bring your own snacks if you feel you might need them before or after lunch.  Hard work can make a person more hungry than usual.
- Hydration is a requirement of hard work.  We will have hot coffee, tea, and cold mint water available to you all day.  Please bring a water bottle to refill throughout the day.  We also have refreshing beverage options for purchase in our tasting room. 
- An end of day glass of wine is included in your registration fee.  Wine tastings, wines by the glass or bottle, and local beer are also available for purchase.

LIVE History In Time
LIVE History In Time

Historic Geneva welcomes touring theater company Live History to Rose Hill Mansion for the interactive theatrical experience In Time on Saturday, May 18, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Due to a mysterious nexus in time, four members of the Swan household have been ripped from the late 1800s to the present day. Each with their own goal, yet all share a common problem. They only have an hour to return to their own time, otherwise they risk being erased from history. To get back to their time, they need the help of Rose Hill visitors. The question remains will they be In Time?

This program has escape room, quest, and theatre elements. Visitors will explore the mansion with characters from Rose Hill’s history while collecting clues and completing tasks in this live-action scavenger hunt. Groups will leave every 30 minutes beginning at 11 a.m. The last group will leave at 5 p.m. The experience takes about an hour. Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased in advance at historicgeneva.org or at the door the day of the event. The Carriage House Gift Shop will also be open for the event.

Redbud and dogwood bloom at Robert H. Treman State Park in Ithaca NY.
Paying it Forward in Parks

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the New York State Park system, and we are celebrating it locally! Robert H. Treman State Park itself was opened to the public a century ago, and Buttermilk Falls State Park was established in 1924 as well.

The Friends of Robert H. Treman State Park (Tremanparkfriends.org) have worked with Finger Lakes State Parks education/interpretation staff to produce exhibits about state parks in Tompkins County and the Finger Lakes Region in the atrium of the Tompkins Center for History and Culture (tompkins-center.net) on the Ithaca Commons. Come on down and explore the displays and short videos, including a life-sized image of Robert H. Treman, benefactor and leader in the creation of our state parks in Tompkins County and throughout the region, as well as other local parks and preserves. We take a brief tour of the exhibits in this episode (#260) of Walk in the Park (Walkinthepark.tv)

Also on May 4, hundreds of volunteers across the state pitched in on “I Love My Park Day” to help prepare parks for this season and for generations to come. We go to Robert H. Treman State Park to see what was happening there, including interviews with Park Supervisor Cassie Lovelace, Park Manager Jim Brophy, and Finger Lakes State Park Regional Director Fred Bonn.

Finished stone wall at Hunt Country Vineyards
The Ancient Art of Dry Laid Stone with DJ Kitzel - MAY 2024

Date & Time:

Saturday, May 18 & Sunday, May 19, 2024:  9:00am-4:00pm

Registration:

$300 per person - Includes morning pastry, lunch, a glass of wine, & instruction, both days.
PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED: No walk-ins. Space limited to 14 students.

   We are so pleased to team up with DJ Kitzel for yet another season of stonemasonry workshops here at Hunt Country Vineyards.

   DJ is  a natural instructor and sharer of talent, creativity, and skills.  A truly unique weekend workshop having fun learning from this talented stone mason, teacher, artist, and renaissance man.

   A combination of some great outdoor learning, comradery & tinkering with ancient stones.  All accompanied by delicious locally catered lunches, outstanding Hunt Country wines, & gorgeous vineyard scenery.

Dry Laid Stone: 

Dry-laid stonework is the ancient art of building with stone without the use of mortar.  Common in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world, it is becoming increasingly popular in North America in functional hardscapes.  This two-day course is designed to be a primer in the contemporary skills and applications of this timeless trade.  Currently, there are few dry-laid stone workers in the Finger Lakes and demand is growing.

This course will be a hands-on experience of dry-laid wall construction.  This class will build on skills learned in previous workshops.  Beginners are welcome, but this will be a more challenging build than in previous workshops, in terms of design and precision.  Students who complete the course will be able to build free-standing stone walls, retaining walls, foundations, walkways and stairs.  Hands-on learning will be mixed with direct instruction, discussion and working lunches.  Participants will learn the tools, techniques, materials and traditions of this accessible art form.

This portable skill set is in demand by landscapers and builders alike.  The trade requires few tools to get started.  Other benefits of dry-laid stonework include personal creativity, fitness, and a deep connection to an ancient human experience.

There will be a tent on site to protect participants from sun and rain.  All tools and materials will be provided.  Participants should dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes. Sunscreen, sun hat and a water bottle are recommended. You are also welcome to bring safety glasses, work gloves and any personal tools.

Instructor:

D.J. Kitzel is a stonemason, certified English teacher, and licensed wilderness guide with 34+ years of experience in the building trades, including masonry.  He has worked on historic structures and new builds across Rochester and the Finger Lakes region while pursuing a life-long interest in these traditional trades.   

Program: 

Saturday morning will include introductions, course overview, expectations, and safety.  Getting right into the project by 10am and throughout Saturday and Sunday.  Instruction will be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on work to construct a functional wall.  D.J. will provide instruction, all tools needed, and work songs.

Food: 

BREAKFAST:
- There will be local pastry, coffee, and tea available upon your arrival both mornings. 
- However, we encourage you to eat a hearty breakfast ahead of arrival, as you will be working hard all morning.  

LUNCH: 
- Locally catered lunches will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. 

SNACKS, HYDRATION, & WINE: 
- There are picnic items available to purchase in our tasting room, but please feel free to bring your own snacks if you feel you might need them before or after lunch.  Hard work can make a person more hungry than usual.
- Hydration is a requirement of hard work.  We will have hot coffee, tea, and cold mint water available to you all day.  Please bring a water bottle to refill throughout the day.  We also have refreshing beverage options for purchase in our tasting room. 
- An end of day glass of wine is included in your registration fee.  Wine tastings, wines by the glass or bottle, and local beer are also available for purchase.

Schumann A Major String Quartet, Op. 41 No. 3
Reena Esmail Saans
Suk Love Song
Franck Piano Quintet 

From romantic passion to intense hatred, music is not only often inspired by, but also can elicit profound emotions. Robert Schumann’s Quartet in A Major, which opens with a sighing “Clara” motive in homage to his beloved bride, captures the composer’s affection, but also his extreme volatility. The soaring melodies of Reena Esmail’s Saans were composed as a wedding present for a friend—a celebration of love, but also testament to the deep relationship between friends. César Franck’s explosive Piano Quintet is a tumultuous expression of a range of emotions, which inspired not only numerous tales about the genesis and effect of the work, but also holds the listener in its impassioned thrall.

Redbud and dogwood bloom at Robert H. Treman State Park in Ithaca NY.
Paying it Forward in Parks

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the New York State Park system, and we are celebrating it locally! Robert H. Treman State Park itself was opened to the public a century ago, and Buttermilk Falls State Park was established in 1924 as well.

The Friends of Robert H. Treman State Park (Tremanparkfriends.org) have worked with Finger Lakes State Parks education/interpretation staff to produce exhibits about state parks in Tompkins County and the Finger Lakes Region in the atrium of the Tompkins Center for History and Culture (tompkins-center.net) on the Ithaca Commons. Come on down and explore the displays and short videos, including a life-sized image of Robert H. Treman, benefactor and leader in the creation of our state parks in Tompkins County and throughout the region, as well as other local parks and preserves. We take a brief tour of the exhibits in this episode (#260) of Walk in the Park (Walkinthepark.tv)

Also on May 4, hundreds of volunteers across the state pitched in on “I Love My Park Day” to help prepare parks for this season and for generations to come. We go to Robert H. Treman State Park to see what was happening there, including interviews with Park Supervisor Cassie Lovelace, Park Manager Jim Brophy, and Finger Lakes State Park Regional Director Fred Bonn. I Love My Park Day is coordinated by Parks & Trails NY (ptny.org).

Walk in the Park is a non-commercial, public access, cable TV series shown on channel 13 in the Ithaca, NY area. Owl Gorge Productions (Owlgorge.com) produces Walk in the Park as a public service at PEGASYS Community Media Center (Pegasys.webstarts.com). Owl Gorge Productions is a Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance partner.

Geneva Music Festival 2024 Season: Light and Dark
Thursday, May 30, 7:30 PM
Brentano String Quartet

Mark Steinberg and Serena Canin, violins; 
Misha Amory, viola; 
Nina Lee, cello

Haydn String Quartet Op. 33 No. 5
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8
Mendelssohn String Quartet in D Major, Op. 44/1


Join the Brentano Quartet, hailed by the New York Times for their “luxuriously warm sound [and] yearning lyricism” for a special concert celebrating musical contrasts. Revel in Joseph Haydn’s genial and energetic String Quartet in G Major, Op. 33, No. 5, which overwhelmingly brings warmth and light to mind. Darkness descends in the String Quartet No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 110 by Dmitri Shostakovich; its dedication (“In memory of the victims of fascism and war”), somber, sometimes grating harmonies, and musical allusions (incorporating, for instance, “Dies irae” from the Catholic requiem mass) capture the pain and sorrow felt by its composer. Hope dawns, though, and brightness reigns in Felix Mendelssohn’s spirited String Quartet in D major, Op. 44, No. 1.

Beethoven Op. 76, “Harp”
Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2
Georges Antoines Piano Quartet

Music making can be a balm, offering respite among sorrow and strife, and giving artists a way of expressing their pain or reacting to their circumstances. In music, composers may celebrate victories, lament the loss of friends, or find the metaphorical harmony and peace that eludes the larger world. Join resident GMF artists for an exploration of three composers whose lives and works were shaped by their experience of conflict. Written during the Napoleonic wars, Beethoven’s “Harp” Quartet is a sparkling, lyrical reminder of joy, while Shostakovich’s Piano Trio, written as a memorial and replete with a danse macabre, dwells upon the tragic. Georges Antoine’s Piano Quartet, emerging from the trenches of World War I, is a passionate testament to a musical career cut short.

Wag Your Tail Along The Trail

Dearest four-legged friends,

 

The moment has come for you to nudge your human companion and make your way to the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, from June 1st through the 30th. Each winery along the trail has prepared delightful treats just for you, the most delightful of all creatures, and ample pets and belly rubs await from admirers aplenty to make your tail wag with joyous vigor.

"But what about my beloved human?" you might inquire. Fear not, for they too shall partake in the festivities. At the very first winery you visit within the designated dates, your human will receive a 'pooch-friendly punch card'. Should they manage to guide you to 6 or more wineries, acquire a bottle at each, and turn in their punch card at the final stop (or mail it to the wine trail office), they will enter for a chance to claim a grand prize! The precise nature of the reward remains a closely guarded secret, but we shall reveal it in due course.

 

Take note, dear reader, of these important considerations for your human's awareness:

 

  • The tasting rooms of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail's esteemed wineries are entirely pet-friendly, though restaurant areas are an exception.
  • Participation in this splendid event is free, save for any tasting fees your human may incur at each winery.
  • The first 100 who pre-register will receive a free bandana to enhance your undeniable charm. (see below to pre-register)
  • While we trust you'll be the epitome of good manners, please stay leashed at all times. We wouldn't want you to dart off with unchecked enthusiasm and lose your way.
  • Additionally, the wine trail has been busily planning further delights, including souvenir options to mark your visit, delectable dog biscuits to take home, photo opportunities, contests, and much more!

 

Yours devotedly,

 

The Canine Connoisseur and Wine Trail Leader
