When summer winds down that doesn’t mean the fun events in the Lake George region are over. When there’s a nip in the air and the leaves are changing, you can enjoy the fabulous Adirondack views and have a great time doing everything from listening to jazz to a cold beer at Oktoberfest.

6 Fall Events in the Lake George Region:

Lake George Jazz Weekend: This event should be on the calendar for every jazz lover. This free outdoor festival showcases a talented lineup of jazz musicians performing at Shepard Park. Bring a lawn chair to catch the music at the park or anchor offshore on your boat!

Adirondack Balloon Festival: The festival celebrates its 50th year in 2023. You can watch dozens of hot air balloons of all shapes and sizes launch and even book a ride with a pilot if you’re ready to get a birdseye view of the Adirondacks.

Heritage, Harvest & Horse Festival: Held each fall at Fort Ticonderoga, this family-friendly event teaches folks about the importance of horses and other working animals in North Country history. See demonstrations, meet the friendly team of oxen, shop at the farmers market, and explore their six-acre Heroic Corn Maze.

Lake George Oktoberfest & Fall Festival: Come and see how Lake George Village transforms into a Bavarian-style street fair! Enjoy nonstop German and Polka music, delicious food, traditional dancers, carnival rides, and more. Greet the fall season with a cold beer and the beautiful Adirondack foliage in the background.

Adirondack Nationals Car Show: Held on the weekend after Labor Day in Lake George Village, you can see hundreds of classic cars, trucks, hot rods, and custom builds at the Adirondack region’s biggest car show. In addition to the cool cars, there’s music, special events, and for real car buffs there are vendors offering parts, equipment, services, and other auto-related products.

ADK 5K: 2023 marks the return of this classic run along the banks of Lake George. Celebrate the cool, fall running weather and tackle a course that features beautiful views of the Adirondacks.
