What Can You Expect to See and Do At the Festival?

The Festival is a 3-day event from Friday through Sunday . The beautiful Charles R Wood Park is a short walk to the Village Center and the Million Dollar Beach. Make it a full summer day or weekend enjoying all that Lake George has to offer during this lovely time of year in the Adirondacks.

Festival Food and Beverages

This Festival puts a special emphasis on the Food and the Music. Enjoy refreshing beverages perfect for a summer day. The standalone Beer and Wine offers local domestic and craft brewed options with a great choice for every taste.

Live Music

At this Festival the music will be presented on alternating Stages — Festival Main and Pavilion (more intimate stage inside the Dining Tent). There are 18 bands over the course of the entire weekend including a wide variety of musical genres.  


The Festival offers a marketplace of about 30 exhibitors selling both handmade and resold items. A portion of the marketplace includes specialty foods and wine and spirits sold by local and regional entrepreneurs. 

Kids’ Activities

We’ll have great activities for the kids, such as pony rides, a bounce zone, farm animals, and cold delicious drinks. Please note that KIDS 14 and Under get FREE admission, but the private contractors of the various Kids activities will charge a few dollars for their offerings. Prices vary!

Marketplace Featured Artist

Photographer Brad Wanik

Brad Wanik does beautiful wildlife, landscapes, and aircraft photography. He lives in the Lake George area and captures many of his wildlife subjects on his own land. Looking at this owl, you might be humbled to have ever imagined all you would need for a good photograph is the newest pixel phone and a lucky encounter with a magnificent creature.

Marketplace feature Bella-Brooke Vineyard

(From their website): Established in 2008, Bella-Brooke Vineyard is a labor of love for its owners Gary & Carol Davis and Larry & Jodi Hollister. Lifelong friends and neighbors who share a love for Northern New York and wine, decided to combine the two together and try their luck at growing cold hearty grapes to produce wine.

The vineyard sits overlooking beautiful Black Lake, New York, making it a prime place to grow grapes. Bella-Brooke vineyard produces cold hearty grapes such as LaCrescent, Marquette, Frontenac, Frontenac Gris as well as a few others.

What People are Saying

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what we’ve been told!

What a beautiful day! I absolutely loved this Festival and all the great food, music, and vendors.


We could not get our kids to leave. They enjoyed the day so much. We’ll be back next year.


The bands were excellent. I came all three days — and what a deal to pay less than a single cover charge to see them all.
