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 most-anything-outdoors parties.

Look forward to the Ausable River Two-Fly Challenge in mid May, a chance to celebrate all things fly fishing!

Some of the finest fly fishing anywhere.

On May 20th, celebrate the Green Grass Getdown, when Sugar House Creamery in Upper Jay releases their herd of cows into pasture. The cows' antics are fun to see, and there's live music, food, and a farmers market.
