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 celebrates both local and international artists, supports area organizations and businesses, and strengthens 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 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.
