Events in the Corning Area

We have the gorgeous scenery—the panoramic views and remarkable lake fun that sets the Finger Lakes region apart— world-class wine and craft beverages, world-renowned art, unique shops, delicious food, engaging hands-on activities and outdoor adventures. But we couldn't stop there, which is why we have so many exciting events all year long throughout Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes.

Annual Finger Lakes events like GlassFest and the Finger Lakes Wine Festival which, year after year, are named to the top 100 events in all of North America. Unique events on the shores of breathtaking Keuka Lake and in small town squares. Events with motorcycles and seaplanes and vintage boats, as well as special wine trail events, brewfests, and historic reenactments.

Whether you're looking for something romantic, fun for the whole family, or reasons to get away with friends, we have music, art, food, and so much more.

Check out our calendar for events this week and other upcoming events this month, or take a look at our top annual events and our popular holiday events.
