Lake George Winter Carnival 2018

Weekends In February Are Winter Carnival Time!

Lake George Village offers a month-long celebration of winter during this annual family-friendly festival! The Winter Carnival takes place each weekend throughout February (Saturdays and Sundays from 2/3/2018-2/25/2018), so mark your calendar now and get ready to take part in the fun.

Relish the warmth of tasty samples during the chowder, chili, BBQ, and chicken wing cook-offs. Enjoy the always hilarious and fun outhouse races - a crowd pleasing favorite - as well as ATV, snowmobile races and more!

Kids can participate in children's activities, enjoy an ATV wagon or pony ride, and toast marshmallows on the beach. And that's just a sample; there's so much fun for everyone! View the complete list of activities below.

What Happens If There's No Ice?

Although Lake George is usually frozen solid by February, there are some years (like 2017) when mild temperatures cause the ice to be unsafe for the Winter Carnival's normal activities.

If ice-dependent events need to be canceled or relocated, that information will be announced on the Winter Carnival's Facebook page or website.

We will continue to make updates to this page through the end of the Carnival.
