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.

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.

Your January just got a whole lot hotter! Enjoy great music, glassmaking, and Finger Lakes Wines and Ciders at January's 2300°.

At 2300° Fahrenheit, hot glass gets interesting—and so do things at The Corning Museum of Glass. Enjoy glassmaking demonstrations, live music, and great food and drink. Free and open to the public.

Live Glassmaking by Robin and Julia Rogers
Get ready to warm things up in a major way as Robin and Julia Rogers take the floor in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. A team for nearly 18 years, it's safe to say Robin and Julia Rogers are artists who truly love working with glass. As a team, they approach glass in many ways often incorporating blown and sculpted glass with electronics, sound, light, shadow, and many other elements. They pull inspiration from the world around them, melding their ideas to create thoughtful and intriguing works.

Live Music Featuring Hannah Gill and The Hours & Svet
The Austin-based band Hannah Gills and The Hours swing by our Auditorium to bring their disco-infused pop sounds and captivating low-register vocals to 2300°. Plus, enjoy electro hip-hop violinist Svet in the cafe. Recognize the name? Svet was featured on America's Got Talent in Season 7!

Live Music by Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers & SUNGBEATS
Get ready for live, high-energy zydeco music. Not familiar with the style? Zydeco refers to a genre of music that originated in Louisiana featuring fast-tempo accordion. Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers are renowned for their unique style which infuses blues, soul, and funk with a traditional zydeco rhythm. Dopsie has been called "the Jimi Hendrix of the accordian" by Rolling Stone magazine so this is one performance you definitely don't want to miss. And, because we couldn't have just one amazing musical act, check out SUNGBEATS. Sung Lee is an award-winning beatboxer and live looper from New York City. Using just a microphone and loop pedal, he creates incredible bass-thumping music. From electronica to hip-hop, watch live as this performer makes music, right in front of your eyes.
