Lake George Winter Carnival 2022 - 3rd Weekend

Shepard Park : Canada St, Lake George, NY  12845

The Lake George Winter Carnival is back in 2022 — every weekend in February!

It was 1961 when a group of volunteers first planned a Lake George Winter Carnival. More than half a century later Winter Carnival continues to celebrate outdoor recreation in the Adirondacks with four activity-packed weekends, every Saturday and Sunday in February.

Since there was no Lake George Winter Carnival in 2021 due to COVID-19, we’re celebrating the 60th anniversary of this keystone event this year.
