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 events like GlassFest and 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.

Run in the 35th Annual Wineglass Marathon

The 35th Annual Wineglass Marathon, one of the more popular and fastest-growing marathons in the Northeast U.S., takes place in the Finger Lakes Region on Sunday, October 2, 2016. Each year, more and more runners travel from all over the US and Canada, and from around the world to America’s “Crystal City”. Runners come for a variety of reasons (including the 1st time marathoner just looking to finish, marathon veteran adding to their list of races completed or states in which they have run a marathon, runners looking for personal bests and/or qualifying times for races such as the Boston Marathon, and runners coming with groups or on the recommendation of friends), not least of which includes Corning's attractions and natural beauty plus typically great weather (for running) in the autumn season along with an unmatchable display of community spirit and support.

Wineglass Marathon Health & Fitness Expo

The 2016 Wineglass Marathon Health & Fitness Expo will take place at the Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG) on Friday, September 30th (12:00 pm-7:00 pm) and Saturday, October 1st (10:00 am-7:00 pm). The Expo is a hub of excitement for runners, spectators and the local running community. Begin your Wineglass Weekend experience here!

Corelle 5K

As part of Wineglass Weekend, the Corelle 5K is a great warm up for those participating in the full or half marathons. The 5K is a family friendly event that gives runners of all ages and skill levels the chance to participate. It is a flat, out and back course that starts and finishes near the War Memorial Stadium of the Corning Painted-Post High School.
