Lake Placid is home to a diverse range of events, capitalizing on our open spaces, fresh air, and prime outdoor adventures.
Our Olympic legacy remains strong as we continue to host world-class sporting events year-round, from the Empire State Winter Games to Ironman, and everything in between. Live entertainment also thrives in our mountain town at the many local taverns and restaurants. At the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, visitors and local alike will find exciting classes and dynamic performances in all seasons.
In the warmer months, events really start to heat up. Foodie specials abound and our area parks and waterfront are ideal for a picnic or family get together. Spend an evening relaxing on the shore of Mirror Lake or take in the fall foliage at the annual Flaming Leaves Festival.
Colder temperatures don't mean that the fun slows down. Throughout the winter there are Nordic races at Mount Van Hoevenberg and hockey tournaments (indoors and out) featuring grade-school teams or NCAA finalists. In December, join us for the Holiday Village Stroll for a chance to meet Santa and celebrate the season!
There is something happening all the time in Lake Placid and the High Peaks Region with many more events on the calendar.
