The Lake George Area Winterfest is Lake George's newest winter event, bringing socially-distanced, family-friendly fun to Lake George every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the month of February 2021.

Save On Your Stay

Purchasing a Winterfest wristband entitles you to 15% off your stay at participating lodging properties. You could opt for a resort in the Village, a rustic lodge in the Adirondacks, or a hotel in Glens Falls.

Enjoy Discounted Dining

Your Winterfest wristband will also get you 10% off at participating restaurants throughout the Lake George Area.

Have A Winter Adventure

Each Winterfest admission includes one fun winter activity - like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobile tours, axe throwing, dog sled rides, or fat tire mountain biking - at no additional cost. Choose your favorite activity or one you've always wanted to try and book your adventure on the date and time that works best for you.

Those with Winterfest wristbands can also enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides throughout Lake George Village on Saturdays from 2PM - 8PM and free hot chocolate stations at area restaurants and shops.
