Events in Lake Placid

Lake Placid is host to a diverse range of events — sports, live music, art, and history all thrive in our mountain town!

Can you walk on water? Whether you're watching from the sidelines or cruising across the pond, you're sure to have a blast at the Whiteface Mountain International Pond Skimming Competition on April 6.

Dress up and get in on the fun!If you love to eat, don't miss Eat ADK Restaurant Week on May 2 - 9. Restaurants throughout Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Tupper Lake will offer special prix fixe menus with pricing options of $15, $20, and $30.

And this year marks the 20th anniversary of John Brown Day, held from 2 - 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 at John Brown Farm State Historic Site. Keeping with the tradition of past John Brown Days, the afternoon will be packed with conversation, education, and stories from people whose work advocates for human rights. 

There is something happening all the time in the High Peaks Region, and we have many more events on the calendar, so plan your visit now and join in the fun!
