Lake George Area Winterfest
Enjoy four weekends of healthy outdoor fun, food and memories at Lake George’s newest event: WinterFest!
Winterfest is planned for the four weekends of February, enticing visitors to enjoy socially-distanced safe outdoor events such as cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, winter “fat tire” mountain biking and more while they dine and relax in the Lake George area.
Your wristband will unlock the activities you have signed up for in advance online, and will also be your ticket to horse-drawn carriage rides around Lake George and hot cocoa stations.
Purchase your wristband online at: www.lakegeorgewinterfest.com.
“WinterFest is the new way to get outside and really enjoy the wide variety of family-oriented socially-distanced recreational opportunities in the Lake George region of the Adirondacks,’’ said Christian Dutcher, who is organizing the event. “Our hotels are open and welcoming visitors. Our restaurateurs will be serving up great February food and drink specials while maintaining safety precautions. Local beers will be on tap, local bourbons poured. The WinterFest wristband will be your ticket to safe winter fun,” Mr. Dutcher said.
Since 1961, the Lake George Winter Carnival has put Lake George on the map for winter fun, but its focus on large group activities was not considered conducive to this year’s social distancing requirements. WInterFest is different in that it focuses on individual outdoor activities and offers discounts to make them very affordable.
“The health and safety of our guests and community is paramount, and the WinterFest schedule is subject to change based on our response to COVID-19,” Mr. Dutcher adds.
WinterFest is funded by Warren County and supported by the Warren County Board of Supervisors, the Town and Village of Lake George, Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce, and major hoteliers and restaurateurs.
