Details: As the largest event of its kind in New York State's Finger Lakes Region, Finger Lakes Cork and Fork is the leading culinary showcase of fresh foods, fine wines, and 'farmer's favorites.' The event focuses on the area's diverse agricultural industry; its renowned wine and beverages, and highlights the people who are responsible for cultivating this authentic "food revolution" movement.
Hosted by the Seneca County Chamber of Commerce, the event is held annually at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls. In its third year, it attracted thousands of attendees and featured over 100 different food, wine and local product vendors; and displayed sponsors, entertainers, and local businesses who offered samples, sales, educational seminars and cooking classes.
This event has been designated as regionally significant by Governor Cuomo's office for its impact on efforts to raise awareness of the region's agricultural bounty, promotion of healthy living through the use of fresh ingredients, and its charitable donations towards fighting hunger. The event also promotes growth in the regional economy as part of a Buy Local campaign.
