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.

There’s a festive holiday spirit 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 up 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.

The holiday season kicks off the day after Thanksgiving, November 25th, with Black Friday Shopping small business-style. Come visit our charming boutiques and galleries and grab lunch at one of our award-winning restaurants.

HallmarkWhile often referred to as Hallmark-worthy for its charm and nostalgic holiday festivities, this year, America’s Crystal City will literally be a Hallmark Christmas Town. 

Beginning November 27, Corning, NY, will be featured on HallmarkChannel.com for a special livestream view of the yuletide décor that makes the season shine so bright. Tune in to experience all the joy the twinkling lights and stunning displays can bring this Christmas, and be sure to stop by Corning’s Gaffer District and Centerway Square to see the dazzling décor yourself!
