There's nowhere better to kick-off GlassFest than at May's 2300°! Get in the glassy spirit with an evening of great music, glassmaking, and revelry. At 2300°, hot glass gets interesting—and so do things at The Corning Museum of Glass. Enjoy glassmaking demonstrations, live music, and great food and drink.
Free and open to the public. Free shuttle bus service from the Museum’s I-86 parking lot is available.
From children looking for an adventure to artists looking for inspiration, there’s something for everyone at The Corning Museum of Glass. Explore 3,500 years of glassmaking history in the world’s largest collection of glass, featuring 45,000 pieces of classic and contemporary glass art. At the Hot Glass Show, watch live, narrated, glassmaking demonstrations, and see master glassblowers create stunning pieces before your eyes. Flameworking demos are also offered throughout the day. The only thing better than watching the wonder of glassmaking is trying it yourself! Make Your Own Glass in short, daily workshops: choose from fused picture frames and suncatchers, sandblasted drinking glasses, flameworked beads, pulled-glass flowers, or delicate blown ornaments. Best of all, kids and teens 17 and under are always free; adult admission is $22 (discounts available for AAA/CAA, Students, Military and 62+). Open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, the Museum is open until 7:00 pm.
