Have you wanted to visit Hammondsport NY this summer? This is the week to visit the south end of Keuka Lake!! Two live music events, a motorcycle show, and that isn’t including the many amazing wineries like Bully Hill, maybe the best restaurant in upstate New York!!

Music in the Park is this Thursday August 11 featuring “Blue-Eyed Soul.” Funk, Soul, and Rock and Roll make Blue Eyed Soul a favorite dance band for the Finger Lakes. Grab your dancing shoes and enjoy Thursday Evening 6-8:00pm.


On Friday August 12, the Finger Lakes Boating Museum on Pleasant Road in Hammondsport will host Olympian couple Cal and Olivia Coffey for the launch of a new exhibit. One of the features will be a rowing simulator. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcome to attend.

If you love boats, and the Finger Lakes, don’t miss this blog by A great read by Al Freihofer who rowed the perimeter of all 11 Finger Lakes in his Adirondack canoe this summer.

“My admiration for the folks at Keuka Lake is sky-high; their basin-wide commitment years ago to septic system monitoring literally saved their lake from dramatic decline (and saved their tourism, their property values, their health, and their sense of what it takes to do anything across many constituencies!).”

On Saturday August 12 it will be motorcycle heaven at the Glen Curtiss Museum. 9am til 4pm this FREE outdoor event but admission to the full museum is only $10.

On Sunday the party continues with more live music and back at the Finger Lakes Boating Museum. This Happy Hour concert will feature a string ensemble with star musicians and a great refreshment menu. Members get a discount but non-members can enjoy for just $35.
