The Days of Incandescence” is a 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 downtown Corning's Gaffer District and the Heritage Village living history museum intended to transport guests back to 1880s Corning.

Come out and enjoy an evening in Corning, NY as we celebrate the Days of Incandescence and the return of the Gathers! Cheers!
