Events in Lake Placid

We’ve been very busy this winter, but the fun doesn't stop when the snow melts. Check out some of the exciting events lined up for Lake Placid this spring.
 
If you're looking for some variety and culture, we have the perfect event! Take a trip around the globe with the annual World Music Festival, which is now in its fourth year. The festival is a smorgasbord of live entertainment, workshops, and kids' activities. Learm how to make a didgeridoo, take a salsa dance lesson, or get down with some African drumming. It all happens March 6 at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.
 
The ECAC Division I Hockey Championship is always an exciting event. The top four college hockey teams in the east converge in Lake Placid on March 18 and 19 to take home top honors and move on to the national championship. This is some of the best college hockey you’ll see in America, so plan to be there if you’re a hockey fan. The following weekend, NCAA Hockey action rolls into town with the National Division III championships — it's a chance for hockey lovers to see more of the best college hockey around!
 
Celebrate all things maple on April 2 and 3 during this year's Maple Fest! With tastings, entertainment, and restaurant and retail specials and promotions, you don’t want to miss this annual event, which marks the arrival of spring and the flow of maple sap. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to hit the annual Tastes of Maple on Saturday, April 2. It's a day filled with maple-based culinary samples from local restaurants, spirit and beer tastings, a maple syrup tasting competition where the public is the judge, and live entertainment. What could be sweeter?
