What are the Days of Incandescence?
Steuben County Conference and Visitors Bureau partners with Corning's Gaffer District to develop and host the annual Days of Incandescence seasonal event.
"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, its role in helping spread light across the world. As part of this multi-day event, a unique story was written and published called The Legend of the Gathers, which explores that historical event and the role of a mysterious young boy's role 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. Check out the schedule below, and also visit the Days of Incandescence website for more on the history and story behind this family-fun event throughout the Gaffer District!
