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. Check out our artists & events to see who we have featured in the past and who we are excited to host in the future. The purpose of the festival is to empower agents of change in our community. All of the proceeds from the events benefit the Economic Opportunity Program of Chemung & Schuyler Counties (EOP), an organization that has been a pillar in our community for over 55 years serving over 5,000 community members annually.
