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!

Bon Vivant: An FLX Bounty Meandor at Hosmer Winery

It's that time of year again! Harvest is coming to an end and the wines are finding a place in the cellar as we reflect and celebrate how fortunate we are for the bounty that we have. We invite you to join us at Hosmer Winery for a taste of the good life with samples of local food and handcrafted goods.

We will be selling Hosmer wine by the glass and serving delectable hors-d'oeuvres to enjoy with a live performance from Donna Colton (so get ready to dance). This event is free of charge!!

Nouveau Celebration 2022

Join us in celebrating the first wine of the 2022 harvest! Enjoy a glass of our Nouveau wine and hearty seasonal hors d’oeuvres from Veraisons, outdoors among the fall foliage. We'll have live music throughout the afternoon as well.

Our annual Nouveau celebration began in 1977, the year we were established, as a way of celebrating our first harvest and we’ve continued the tradition every year since over our 40+ year history.

Each year, our Nouveau wine undergoes a quick primary fermentation before being racked and put in a wooden cask. The resulting wine is intensely fresh and fruity. We invite you to join us for a taste of our 2022 Nouveau wine straight from the cask!

Farm Sanctuary's Celebration for the Turkeys

For the first time since 2019, we are back in person with Farm Sanctuary’s beloved annual event: Celebration for the Turkeys! This annual event is well-loved for its inspiring speakers, time spent at Farm Sanctuary, and experiences of community and connection with fellow guests and farm animals.

Join us for this year’s event on November 5 as we express gratitude for the animals who call Farm Sanctuary home and celebrate the powerful ways we can grow and come together as a community. Whether you will be a returning regular to Celebration for the Turkeys, or visiting for the first time, this is a great opportunity to experience Farm Sanctuary as we work to provide refuge for animals exploited by factory farms and promote a more just, compassionate, and sustainable food system. Visit our website to purchase tickets!
