Cabin Fever is another way for people to get out and enjoy downtown Corning.

For only $15 a person you can enjoy wine tastings, craft beer sampling, great shopping, dining promotions, and much more. More than 25 wineries and breweries from the Finger Lakes region will be featured at the event. This is an event held annually as a way to let people get out of their home and enjoy the outdoors after being inside most of the winter.

“Usually by this time of the year, people are ready to get out and have a good time,” said Executive Director of Corning’s Gaffer District Coleen Fabrizi. “We happen to have an amazing downtown with all kinds of businesses to enjoy, as well as be right here in the middle of the Finger Lakes Wine Country and what has now become brewery land. So, we really like to celebrate it and get people out.”

As part of the Drink Responsibly Designated Driver Program sponsored by Bottles & Corks, special promotions will also available for any designated drivers.

“For Designated Driver Program, we hand out a coupon for anybody that’s doing that,” said Bottles & Corks Sales Associate Thomas Bourdage. “So, trying to support people to not drink and drive.”

Other special promotions include discounts, gift cards, and free merchandise. The event goes from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and tickets will be available at any of the three check-in points.

Check-in locations include Lando’s Hotel and Lounge, Radisson Hotel of Corning, and the Info-Center of Corning. Merchandise to help add to the fun will also be available for purchase.
