Events in Lake Placid

ADK Autumn

Fall in the High Peaks Region brings a bit of a slow-down so we can regroup and get ready for the events of winter. 
Arts events help fill the calendar this time of year as we move indoors to acclimate. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts has a full calendar of events to keep everyone busy. 

Perfect start to winter

As late fall rolls around and snow starts blanketing the region, we think more about winter events. Early December will see Luge, Skeleton and Bobsled World Cup events. Lake Placid will come alive for the very popular Lake Placid Holiday Village Stroll on the second weekend in December. Bring the kids to meet Santa and partake in lots of free family-fun activities during the Stroll. Of course, there are also lots of activities for adults including tastings and live music! 
Many more events fill the calendar, so browse through the listings. You’re bound to find at least one reason to visit Lake Placid during the late-fall season!
