Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of scenic upstate New York, the Ferrario Elmira Jazz Festival is the Elmira-Corning area’s premier regional summer jazz festival. Since its inception in 2012, the festival has expanded into a two-day event celebrating both local and international artists, supporting area organizations and businesses, and strengthening the community.
