GlassFest, presented by Corning’s Gaffer District and Chemung Canal Trust Company, is four days of glassmaking demonstrations, music entertainment, art vendors, shopping, food, and more!

GlassFest kicks off on Thursday night with the Glass Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and 2300°: GlassFest, held at the Corning Museum of Glass featuring live glassmaking, music entertainment, food, and drink.

Friday begins with outdoor Hot Glass Shows and the Finger Lakes Wine & Craft Beer Tasting throughout Corning’s Gaffer District. Finish off the night at the Rock The Park concert in Riverfront Park.

Spend all day on Saturday and Sunday wandering along Historic Market Street which is closed to car traffic and filled with fine and fired artists, and food vendors. Watch live glassblowing shows on the outdoor stage in Centerway Square, listen to music during Rock The Park on both days, enjoy activities for the whole family, and even stay late for Fireworks on Saturday night!

On Sunday | May 29 | during GlassFest we honor our fallen soldiers with a special Memorial Day Salute (2:30pm) and a performance by Nashville recording artist Mark Wills (3pm). Plan to come early and watch the Hot Glass Demos by Corning Museum of Glass gaffers throughout the afternoon (11am–5pm), let the kids play on the free inflatables (12–4pm) and shop and eat your way along Market Street (10am–4pm). See you there!

Do you know if they'll be honoring the local fallen (like my late husband) or all of them? I have my VIP tickets for the concert.
