Cold weather events never stop in the Lake George Area. From Winter Carnivals and spectacular Ice Bars to massive boat shows and ice fishing derbies, winter is packed with endless festivals and events in the Lake George Area.

The fun doesn’t stop when the temperature drops in the Lake George Area. Annual winter events, festivals, and activities are held all season long and serve to break up the cold season. Winter Carnivals are the crown jewel of annual winter events featuring awesome activities such as outhouse races, ice sculptures, and human foosball competitions. Amazing ice bars, like the Glacier Ice Bar & Lounge, become the coolest places in town to grab a refreshing drink. If you’re an ice angler, sign up for an ice fishing tournament and try to pull in a winning fish. The Great Upstate Boatshow is a perfect end-of-winter event that will get you in the mood for warmer weather.

Put on a warm jacket, grab your gloves, and get outside and experience how much fun it is during winter in the Lake George Area!
