Corning & the Southern Finger Lakes

Spring in the Southern Finger Lakes enters on a warm breeze, bringing the scent of wildflowers, green grass, crisp, new wines to sample, and spring festivals and events that only happen here.

Corning events offer opportunities to explore wineries, artist studios, and glassmaking. In May, GlassFest 2017 kicks off with four days of fire and arts in Corning, also known as the Crystal City. Stroll along the banks of the Chemung River and watch gaffers manipulate molten glass, listen to live music, and enjoy shopping and dining in historic downtown Corning, NY. Cap the night off with a glass of award-winning Finger Lakes wine and fireworks!

If you make the switch from red wines to white when warmer weather hits, then a trip to our Finger Lakes wineries is a must. Find your new signature spring drink and learn about the local grape harvest, the best vintages, and the history of wine making at our incredible wineries.

It follows that wine country offerings breathtaking beauty around every corner, and plenty of opportunities to explore the outdoors. If months of wool blankets and fireplaces have you ready to play outside, consider pitching your tent at one of the Finger Lakes camping sites. Falling asleep under a canopy of stars after a day of exploring the Southern Finger Lakes? Check and check.

Discover why Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes region has been voted one of the "coolest" and "most fun" towns in America this spring.
