Memorial Day Events

Memorial Day is perfect for reflection and family gatherings. Celebrate by spending time together watching the Annual Memorial Day Parade or bring the family to the fire arts at GlassFest. This spectacular four-day festival was named one of the Top 100 Events in North America by the American Bus Association. Reflect at the Bath National Cemetery, explore museums dedicated to history and culture to learn about the people who helped shape the world we know today.

The weather in May tends to be warm and pleasant, so it is also an excellent time of year to enjoy the Finger Lakes. Unwind by renting a kayak on Keuka Lake, or, get out and taste your way through the Keuka Lake Wine Trail.

If you enjoy the events during Memorial Day, join us in the Finger Lakes Region for Fourth of July! This weekend is loaded with fireworks, fun events and activities.
