The Geneva lakefront $5-million dollar makeover begins today.
Since 2013 the Geneva Visitors and Events Center has struggled to book events. The state selected the facility to become the official Finger Lakes Welcome Center.
The first construction equipment was moved onto the site over the weekend.
The State has partnered with the New York Wine & Culinary Center, a premier attraction in the Finger Lakes that showcases New York’s dynamic and diverse agriculture, food and beverage industries through its classes, events, and farm-to-table restaurant, to help design the Finger Lakes Welcome Center.
The Finger Lakes Welcome Center Will Feature:
- I Love NY Kiosks with videos and directions to the Finger Lakes renowned tourism destinations.
- A Taste NY market showcasing local food, wine, beer, cider and spirits sourced from across the Finger Lakes.
- Children’s playground, electric vehicle charging stations and a farmers’ market.
