Festivals and fairs are hits all year long in the Lake George Area. These are the events that people plan their vacation around. From flourishing film festivals to food and wine extravaganzas, these festivals and fairs are always winners.

Festivals and fairs always bring an extraordinary buzz to the Lake George Area. Every season brings an event that’s sure to get you excited. Fall gatherings include Harvest festivals to celebrate the autumn season and Oktoberfests that keep a cold beer in craft beer lover’s hands. Winter carnivals are held weekend-after-weekend every winter, with awesome events to participate in such as outhouse races and fry-pan tosses. Summer offers a little bit of everything. There are events such as the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival where you can sip on New York State wines and sample the cuisine of local restaurants. There are gatherings celebrating the arts such as the Adirondack Film Festival, where movie-buffs can see excellent films for the first time, or the LARAC Fall Arts Festival, where arts and crafts are displayed and appreciated.

If you love to taste, learn, and experience you need to come to a fair or festival at the Lake George Area.
