The 6th annual Adirondack Wine & Food Festival in Lake George will showcase over 120 of New York's best wineries, breweries, distilleries, artisan food vendors, crafts, and food trucks the region has to offer, with the beauty of Lake George as its backdrop! Who Will Be There:
New York State craft wines and beverages are the centerpiece of the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival. Some of the fine businesses on hand at the festival include Adirondack Winery, Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery, Adirondack Brewery, Lake George Distilling Company, Mean Max Brew Works, Nettle Meadow, Hidden Hollow Maple Farm, and many more.
The tastings don't stop at wine, liquor, and beer. At this try-before-you-buy, farmers market-style event, sample chocolate, cheese, maple products, ice cream, hot sauce, slushies, jerky, olive oil, mustard, rubs, fudge, cookies, crackers, and more.What to Expect:Samples & Tastings
You’ll receive a commemorative wine glass to be used throughout the event to sample craft beverages! As a designated NY Farmer’s Market, the Festival offers the perfect opportunity to try before you buy. Each of our craft beverage and artisan food makers will offer complimentary samples of their products. So whether it’s your new-found favorite bottle of chardonnay, cheddar cheese, or chocolate fudge, each vendor will have their products available for you to purchase and take home with you -- made even easier if you utilize our popular Purchase Drop-Off/Pick-Up service!Cooking Demonstrations
The Festival’s Culinary Tent is known for some incredible cooking demonstrations from local celebrity chefs, such as The Queensbury Hotel's Chef Colin Miner. All weekend long the chefs utilize their own products, as well as local foods and craft beverages in their recipes from their vendors, plus wine & beer pairing suggestions. Also, under the Culinary Tent, local bartenders demonstrate unique Wine Cocktail recipes opposite the culinary demos, mixing new concoctions from wines and liquors available for purchase at the festival! Family-Friendly Atmosphere
The Adirondack Wine & Food Festival is family-friendly. We have a Kids Activity Tent, a state-of-the-art natural playground, and a skateboard park located just outside the Festival Commons at Charles R. Wood Park grounds. The festival is free for ages 15 and under to attend; designated driver and underage tickets are available.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks will once again join us as our official festival beneficiary. Their volunteers are on hand helping us run the festival smoothly, including roaming the grounds providing ample bottles of water to keep everyone hydrated, offering festival swag, and running raffles to raise money.
