The cost to participate is $15 per person and includes collectible wine and beer glasses, along with unlimited tastings throughout the district.
"We are pleased to host Cabin Fever in our downtown," said Coleen Fabrizi, Executive Director of Corning's Gaffer District. "Not only is it an excellent way to taste some of the best wine and beer the region has to offer, it's also a great way to explore the variety of great businesses we offer with friends and family."
The Gaffer District is also proud to announce the return of the Drink Responsibly Designated Driver Appreciation Program, sponsored by Bottles & Corks. The program promotes responsible consumption, and encourages everyone to enjoy the event with a designated driver.
