Finger Lakes Trail Days
July 26 – 27, 2019
Steuben County Fairgrounds, Bath, NY
Steuben County Conference and Visitors Bureau is partnering with Finger Lakes Trail Conference and the Friends of the Chemung River in hosting the first annual Finger Lakes Trail Days on July 26 – 27, 2019. The event will take place at the Steuben County Fairgrounds in Bath, NY.
“Finger Lakes Trail Days is a celebration of all things outdoors,” Kevin Costello, President of the Steuben County Conference and Visitors Bureau. “We want to draw more attention to the many ways locals and visitors can participate in outdoor recreation in the Southern Finger Lakes and felt tapping into our partnerships with the Finger Lakes Trail folks and the Friends of the Chemung was the best way to do that. We all got together and came up with the idea of hosting a weekend of great music, outdoor recreation activities and local food and drink with the goal of introducing attendees to the many opportunities there are in our region to get outside and get active.”
Finger Lakes Trail Days begins on evening of Friday, July 26th with a concert featuring the Grammy Award winning bluegrass band, Steep Canyon Rangers. In 2013, the Steep Canyon Rangers’ solo album Nobody Knows You won the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album. The duet of Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley will show of their guitar and vocal prowess warming up for the Steep Canyon Rangers.
Gates open Friday night at 6:00 pm.
