GlassFest returns to Corning this May

Corning’s annual GlassFest will return this May featuring craft and food vendors, fireworks, children’s activities, live music, and more.

GlassFest is scheduled for May 26 – 29, 2022. The event will begin at the Corning Museum of Glass on May 26 with a glass ribbon cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m.


This year’s event will also feature an observance of the 50th anniversary of the Flood of 1972, which caused great damage to the Corning Museum of Glass’ collection and library. Attendees can also expect the return of the Rock the Park music series and Memorial Day salute.
