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.
Celebrate with us about the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang. We will have a Lake Placid Olympic Cauldron Lighting to kick off Winterfest, a team USA event with multiple events, and interactive stations opportunities to share with your favorite athletes.
Lake Placid Loppet is our 35th Annual race of this classic cross country event. The 16th Annual Backcountry Ski Festival is a weekend of skiing, mini demos, instructional ski clinics, backcountry tours, guest athletes slideshows and feasting. There is bound to be a favorite activity in that list.
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!
