About

Come celebrate Corning, NY's history and mystery during the Days of Incandescence.

“The Days of Incandescence” is a special multi-day celebration each October inspired by the actual history and rather curious mystery behind Corning’s role in making the special glass bulbs for Thomas Edison’s incandescent lamp and, as a result, it’s role in helping spread light across the world. As part of this multi-day event, a special story was written and published called The Legend of the Gathers which explores that historic event and the role a mysterious young boy played in making it all come true. “The Days of Incandescence” introduces actor guided walking tours, live performances, and thematic special offers and experiences throughout the Gaffer District and the Heritage Village to take guests back to the 1880s.

The 2021 Days of Incandescence includes the following events.
