Events in Lake Placid

The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are here and events have tapered off a bit - at least the major events. There are still a lot of great cultural and family events on a smaller scale happening during August and September - events you can join in and take in while relaxing with the family.
In the cultural department, The Lake Placid Center for the Arts has many events on the August calendar to help satisfy some of your desires.  From The Met Live in HD Encores, to the Wednesday Young & Fun Series for kids, there’s something going on most every day of the week at LPCA. If there isn’t an event happening, the art gallery is open for browsing Tuesday through Sunday afternoons from 1 - 5. 
It’s not too early to look ahead to the fall events either. The Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon, Artist at Work Studio Tour, Essex County Cheese Tour, Oktoberfest and Beer Fest, all taking place in September and October. 

Plan ahead ...or while you're here!

Don’t miss some of best and most popular events coming up soon! Check out the dates in our events calendar and join in the fun!
