The summer of 2020 was one for the history books. Over a year later, life is finally on its way back to normal and many local attractions are making their grand return! Here are some worthwhile destinations we think you should visit when you make your grand return to Cooperstown this summer:
Once again, the Fenimore Art Museum is opening its doors and welcoming visitors with multiple new, uplifting exhibits. On May 29th, Fenimore will open Keith Haring: Radiant Vision, a premier exhibit celebrating the iconic late artist, Keith Haring. Witness an extensive collection of his works, including authentic lithographs, silk screens and more original pieces through September 6th. See this exhibit along with others that feature unique, local and historic art.
The Glimmerglass Festival is a one-of-a-kind celebration of the arts that, unfortunately, was put on hold last year. Thankfully, this summer, their big comeback includes a brand new outdoor stage and an exciting line-up of opera and theater performances, including The Magic Flute, Il Trovatore, and the world premiere of The Passion of Mary Cardwell Dawson. Experience these innovative works by renowned artists, but be sure to act quickly because seating is limited and tickets are selling fast!
As the former hops-growing capital of America, Cooperstown is home to a number of breweries, wineries, and distilleries where you can enjoy locally made, craft beverages. There are several stops along the Cooperstown Beverage Trail that are eager to welcome back visitors! Kick back with homemade beers at Brewery Ommegang and Red Shed Brewery, sample handcrafted whiskeys at Cooperstown Distillery, or sip smooth wines and enjoy live music at Pail Shop Vineyards!
