Events in Lake Placid

Charming and Exciting Events

In Lake Placid, the fun doesn't end when you leave the trails. On any given day, you might find wine and beer tastings, live music, educational workshops, sporting events, art openings, theater productions, festivals, or full moon parties. 

Make plans now to join us for our fantastic early-winter Holiday Village Stroll weekend from December 8-10. This magical weekend in our snowglobe village features events for all ages including cookie decorating, visits with Santa, live music, wine tastings, story hours, and much, much more. Talk about a quaint way to usher in the holidays! 

Skate America returns to the Olympic village for the Thanksgiving holiday from November 24-26. The world will be watching this spectacular skating exhibition sponsored by Smucker’s. Sixty world-class athletes with dreams of becoming future olympians will be competing in Lake Placid’s 1980 Herb Brooks Arena.

Be sure to come out and cheer on Team USA as they compete at World Cup Luge on their way to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang. The World Cup Games continue with additional events in Para-BobsleighAerials, and Bobsled and Skeleton

Empire State Winter Games, ECAC Hockey, and Lake Placid Loppet highlight some of the other exciting cold-weather sporting events here in Lake Placid. This Olympic year, we welcome these games, along with many others, in the spirit of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic games which were hosted in Lake Placid.  

There is something happening all the time in the High Peaks Region with many more events on the calendar, so plan your visit now and join in the fun!
