Lake George NY Festivals

Lake George hosts many events and does a great job at every one. Two favorites are Americade in June and the Adirondack Nationals in September. You just can’t beat walking around town seeing thousands of beautiful vehicles with the backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George. The streets are filled with people having fun and there are plenty of restaurants and gift shops. Even if you don’t want to pay to get into the official event, the whole town is really an event, itself.

Americade is a week long event centered around the sport and beauty of motorcycles. This is not like Sturgis, so don’t worry about bringing the kids. Whether you sign up for the event and attend all the activities or just go for a day, it is impossible not be impressed with the number of bikes of all makes, models and eras. You’ll see riders who are the weekend warriors, the long time bikers and the newer crop of sport bikers. What is equally impressive is how friendly everyone is in the mix. Nighttime gets a little wilder but it’s always safe and you can just relax and have a great time.

The Adirondack Nationals is a similar event for classic cars. They come from all over and the quality of the restorations is unbelievable. People are friendly and you can learn or just look. You can talk to owners about technical things or draw out the stories of how they got the cars. Either aspect can bring tears to your eyes. And speaking of that, you’ll see some phenomenal paint jobs. You can just hear the cha-ching behind every one! Google Americade and Adirondack Nationals to get more info. If you have even ounce of “gearhead” in your blood, you will enjoy these events.
