GlassFest marks the unofficial beginning of summer in the Southern Finger Lakes, when the streets come alive with wizards turning air, fire and sand into works of art, the air is spiced with the aromatic scent of roasting meat and street food, and every inch of downtown Corning's Gaffer District covered in treasures just waiting for discovery.

This four-day festival, slated for May 24-27, 2018, is spread throughout Corning's Gaffer District, a historic section of the city renowned for its arts and cultural offerings, as well as a dizzying variety of restaurants, boutique shops, and entertainment. Corning is the home of the Rockwell Museum, a Smithsonian affiliate where exhibits portray the spirit of America, and the Corning Museum of Glass, offering hot glass shows, make-your-own keepsake workshops, and a variety of events.

Despite the oft-delicate nature of glass, GlassFest is a family-friendly festival through and through. Festivities kick off Thursday, May 24, with 2300° – the temperature at which "hot glass gets interesting" – at the Corning Museum of Glass. From 6 – 8 pm, enjoy glassmaking demonstrations, live music, great food and drinks for free!

For the next three days, GlassFest takes over the town, and Friday's festivities include a Scavenger Hunt with a grand prize giveaway, outdoor glass demonstrations, and a Finger Lakes wine and beer tasting at several locations downtown. Cap the evening with live music at Riverfront Centennial Park.

Saturday starts, and ends, with a bang as runners from across the region head to the starting line for the GlassFest 8K Race through downtown Corning. From there, enjoy more glass demos, street exhibits, vendors, and a variety of activities for kids. The day ends with a dazzling fireworks display rivaling any July 4th celebration.

Watch the elemental alchemy of glassmaking during Corning's GlassFest, and experience the Crystal City's unofficial start to summer!

Can't get enough of the fire arts? The Tiffany & Treasures Trail is a self-guided adventure through the history of fire arts in the Southern Finger Lakes. Explore museums, make your own glass, or shop around until you find the perfect treasure.

The Best of New York State Wines

The Finger Lakes Wine Festival pairs over 80 wineries with breweries, music, culinary classes, and regional artisans to bring you one of the summer's hottest events. Discover, taste and enjoy the best wines New York State has to offer, including many varieties from local Finger Lakes Wineries.

Cabernets, Chardonnays, Moscatos – oh my!

Pour, sip, eat and repeat. With more than 600 wines available for tasting and purchase, the Finger Lakes Wine Festival is your one stop shop for New York wines. Unlike a traditional wine tour where you have to organize transportation from one winery to the next, the world-renowned Watkins Glen International racetrack houses everything you want and need in one beautiful location.

Between tastings, fill up on gourmet food, enjoy live music, and browse the wares of a variety of arts and craft vendors. If you're looking for a real thrill, take a pace car ride around the track! For those who prefer grains to grapes, the onsite beer garden will quench your thirst. With so much to do (and drink,) it might be best to stay the night. On-site camping is available, or enjoy a relaxing evening at one of the excellent Corning hotels. Don't miss out on this fun and fantastic opportunity! Purchase tickets to the Finger Lakes Wine Festival today.
