Lake George Winter Carnival Time!

A Full Month of Events, Food and Fun!

It’s February – and that means all sorts of old fashioned winter fun in the Queensbury area! During the month of February, the annual Lake George Winter Carnival is in full swing! This yearly event is a traditional festival, planned and put together each year by an all-volunteer committee. The LGWC has been entertaining visitors to the area since 1961 – nearly six decades! It’s a month-long, family friendly winter celebration of the region featuring fun activities like cooking contests, ice sculptures, ATV races, and much more.

The Winter Carnival is a busy time of year for Lake George and its surrounding areas. If you’re interested in checking out the Carnival, we recommend planning ahead – there is so much to see and do, and you won’t want to miss a moment of it! While the Carnival calendar is chock full of happenings and activities, these featured events are the hallmark of wintertime in Lake George:

The Carnival features some high-octane events, including motorcycle, snowmobile, ATV, and even sanctioned car races on the ice. These are ongoing throughout the month of February.

If You Go

Don’t forget that the Carnival is ultimately a celebration of winter, and the majority of these amazing events are held outside and on the icy surface of the lake  (weather permitting). Dress for the weather! Layer on and bundle up, and bring your scarves, mittens or gloves, and hats. Finally, weather-resistant boots and shoes will keep your feet warm during your walks across the lake and around the village.
