Welcome back, weekend. We sure have missed you. There is so much happening starting Thursday and carrying us all the way till Sunday. Art, food, wine, fireworks, we have it all. Check out all the events on our events calendar, but catch all the details below!
For all the early risers out there, get out of town for the morning to cheer on the bicyclists on the Tour de Keuka. The participants, who raised money to help feed families struggling with hunger with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, will begin their ride in Hammondsport and cruise all around scenic Keuka Lake.

On your way home, stop by the farmer’s market for some groceries and local products between 10am and 3pm. Plus, everyone keeps telling me the donuts are spectacular, so grab some of those too, and let me know what you think.
In the evening, check out Corning Museum of Glass’s guest artist Courtney Dodd from 6pm to 8pm. She’ll be doing a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater.

Finally, the weekend has arrived. Kick off happy hour at Liquid Shoes, which recently opened its doors! Test out all their brews with a $10 flight and snack on freshly made sandwiches as you enjoy the open view out onto Market Street. After you’ve finished off the delicious beers, head over to Brick House Brewery. They’ll be hosting the classic rock band Still Kickin’ at 9pm (and Fridays are $3 margarita nights!). If Indie Rock is more your speed, the Family Ties band will be playing Saturday night at 9pm.
Here’s all the info.
More music? You betcha. If you’re looking for a change of scenery, Ithaca is having a Reggae Fest all weekend, Friday to Sunday. Listen to some chill artists, both local and not-so-local, all while supporting a cause! A portion of the proceeds go towards protecting Cayuga Lake and funding education. #Reggae4Cayuga

With the summer season comes firework season, and Set the Night to Music is one not to miss. This free show will start just after 9 pm, but if you head over to the Arnot Mall after 5pm, the parking lot will be filled with vendors like Hometown BBQ and M&M Hots. There’s even a cornhole tournament with prizes!

Wrap up your weekend with wine! Keuka Lake Wine Trail is hosting Fire It Up! Begin the event at one of the five wineries participating, and sample four delicious wines perfectly paired with hearty barbecue and grilled foods sourced from the local area. Make your way to the next winery and repeat until full (and maybe a little drunk).
