Annual Events in Downtown Corning
There's never a dull moment in downtown Corning. The Gaffer District offers a full schedule of annual events and live music held throughout the year that celebrates our history, diversity, and vibrancy!
Make sure to join us each May for our annual GlassFest, as we honor our rich history of world-class glass production with live fire art demonstrations, musical performances, art vendors, and so much more!
Or, join us for our annual celebration of Christmas in the Crystal City, featuring the Parade of Lights and Sparkle, to discover why Corning has been named one of the "Best Christmas Towns to Put on Your Holiday Bucket List" by Country Living Magazine!
Visiting the Finger Lakes during Fall? Plan on visiting our Harvest Festival, featuring a four-block long farmer's market and live music throughout Corning!
