The small town of Corning is also known as “Olive City” due to its many highly acclaimed olive oil producers, olive harvesters, packagers and great gift shops that host tasting bars full of olives, olives and more olives. Olive oil connoisseurs will be delighted by the variety and innovations of the many companies, some award-winning for their personal styles. With hundreds of flavors, you are sure to find a new favorite or a distinctive gift. Fittingly, Corning hosts an Olive Festival every August with a parade, lawn mower and bed races, the Miss Corning Pageant and the mysterious Missing Olive Contest. Come for the olives, stay for the fun.
