about us

The Finger Lakes Thaw is a two day, multi-venue music festival that takes place in the many unique and intimate venues throughout the city of Ithaca, NY.  We are dedicated to providing a stage for local performers, but also creating opportunity for communities to see nationally-recognized artists. We are proud to root this festival in the community and work with many local businesses. The first annual Finger Lakes Thaw took place in March 2018, and will return in Spring 2019
