The Lake George Winter Carnival… Every weekend in February!

The 1st Annual Lake George Winter Carnival was held in the winter of 1961. Now, over a half-century later, this celebration of all the great Adirondack wintertime outdoor activities continues with 4 activity-packed weekends during the month of February.

The 2018 Lake George Winter Carnival brought fun and exciting events for all! The weather was great and people were everywhere! Events all over Lake George Village! We would like to give a big THANK YOU to all of the businesses who participated in our events–you guys rock!
