There’s always a free event to attend in the Lake George Area. From free art exhibits to car shows and motorcycle rallies, when it comes to free events, the Lake George Area puts its money where its mouth is.

An entire Lake George Area vacation can be spent attending free events. Libraries, museums, and art galleries hold free concerts, free exhibits, and free art showings. Your family will love the fireworks shows over Lake George every Thursday in the summer. You can check out classic cars or sweet motorcycles at the Adirondack Nationals Car Show and Americade motorcycle rally. In the fall, watch hot-air balloons fly high at the Adirondack Balloon Festival. For adrenaline junkies, the Hudson River Whitewater Derby is a whitewater rafting race that is free to attend. Browsers will love the World’s Largest Garage Sale held every fall in Warrensburg. Attending is free and browsing is half of the fun!

If free is the right price for you, it’s time to head to the Lake George Area.
