Onsite Dining Opportunities

Delicious sandwiches and wraps

We invite you to picnic on the Glimmerglass Festival grounds prior to or after the performance. Refreshments are available two hours before curtain and during intermission. Our concession stands, located at the front of the theater, offer fine wines, specialty wraps, sandwiches, salads and desserts.

Festival Fare

New in 2016! Beginning with the July 17 performance of La bohème, The Glimmerglass Festival offers an exciting new option for on-campus alfresco dining. Choose from two curated selections, the Sophisticated Palate – perfect for the food adventurer – or the Regional Cuisine, for those who want to try local products and support the burgeoning farm-to-fork movement in Central New York. Pre-orders are preferred, though many options are available on campus each day. Picnics may be picked up at the Marketplace. Click here for more information.

Black Cat Cafe picnics

Pre-ordered gourmet picnics are also available. Black Cat Cafe gourmet picnics are delivered fresh to the theater daily, innovative and created using the freshest local produce and finest ingredients. We ask that you order your picnic 48 hours in advance of your visit. Click here to order your picnic today.

Festival Dining

A visit to Glimmerglass isn't just a night at the opera -- it's your ticket to a summer-long festival of music, song, arts and community. Three weekends at the peak of the season feature a concentration of events and opportunities to meet and mingle with artists, friends and enthusiasts over special lunches and dinners.

Food Truck Dining

Stop by the Pizza Genie food truck, located just outside the Pavilion, for fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza.  The food truck is open noon to 7:00 p.m.
