There’s always an awesome annual event worth attending in the Lake George Area. Every season features a massive festival or a niche gathering that attracts visitors from near and far. From traditional Adirondack events to small up-start gatherings, annual events are always an exciting addition to a Lake George Area vacation.

The Lake George Area is renowned for its annual events

These events are so magnificent that visitors plan their yearly vacation around attending. Annual events run the gamut, from massive gatherings that hobbyists and foodies love, to small festivals dedicated to music and the arts.

The year begins with nature-related events such as Thurman Maple Days and the Hudson River Whitewater Derby. These events have an undeniable Adirondack flavor. Summertime has a spate of annual hits. Gearheads travel hundreds of miles to attend the Adirondack Nationals Car Show and the Americade Motorcycle Rally. Food-connoisseurs stroll from booth to booth tasting the area’s finest cuisine at the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival. Fall festivals abound with Oktoberfests, the Adirondack Balloon Festival and the World’s Largest Garage Sale drawing huge crowds every autumn. Even winter can’t stop the annual events. Winter Carnivals and Ice Bars pop-up all over the region to entertain those who brave the winter weather.

As if you needed another reason to visit the Lake George Area.
