Lake Placid is host to a diverse range of events. Our Olympic tradition remains strong as we continue to host world-class sporting events year-round. Live entertainment also thrives in our mountain town. See below for upcoming events.

In September, join us for the Zonta Club 5K Chili Run, a family-friendly day of fun at scenic Heaven Hill Farm. The views are amazing, the run/walk is for a good cause, and the hot chili will be a welcome treat.

October brings the return of the Lake Placid Film Festival, a curated mix of new independent films, documentaries, classic films and special guests. Enjoy films from around the world and as close as the Adirondacks, including a special competition for local high school students.


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!
