Experience Christmas in Downtown Corning This Holiday Season

Crystal City Christmas

Sponsored by First Heritage Federal Credit Union

Walk along our brick-lined sidewalks, slip into family-owned boutiques, and enjoy a Crystal City Christmas in our charming downtown.

A festive holiday spirit is alive in Corning’s Gaffer District when the air turns crisp, and the lights twinkle on our tree-lined streets. When you step into our charming downtown, it isn’t hard to see why Country Living Magazine named Corning, NY, one of “America’s 25 Best Small Towns for Christmas.” Some locals even say that if you crinkle your eyes on a snowy day, you will think you are exploring a Christmas snow globe!

You can’t help but feel the magic!  Whether you’re coming home for the holidays or visiting downtown Corning for the first time, we promise you’ll run out of time before you run out of things to do.
