We couldn’t be more excited to take over the vibrant and quintessential Upstate city of Ithaca, NY. All of our venues are in or adjacent to the Ithaca Commons, and for those with a penchant for adventure, there’s plenty scheduled to get you exploring the trails and nearby attractions.

If you’ve never been, you’ll love the energy and culture of Ithaca. It’s a perfect match for Create Upstate, and we can’t wait to spend a few days in the 607 with everyone!


  • State Street

    Blown away by the talented artists in Upstate, we were determined to grow our marketplace this year. That’s why we’re blocking off State Street and launching our Street Fair, a walkable collection of vendor tables and maker stations. It’ll provide the perfect environment to break up our day.

  • Cinemapolis

    Cinemapolis, a first-run movie theater, is a staple of Downtown Ithaca. It’s also where we’re hosting Thursday’s Upstate Discussions. Theater-style seating and, well, movie screens, will provide the perfect venue for talking shop.
