Events in the Adirondacks

Adirondack events calendar

Events to keep you busy during your stay

The Adirondacks are home to a wide array of indoor and outdoor activities, but our communities also host family-friendly events year-round. Our towns, mountains, ponds, and rivers are unique, and so are the events found below, where you'll find everything from holiday strolls to snowmobile races, guided hikes to cookie swaps.

Meet and mingle at one of our many events, whether you're a family or flying solo. Take part in a group snowmobile tour, check out boreal birds on a guided walk, or bundle up and try and win one of the ice fishing derbies that dot local Adirondack lakes. Whatever your style and preferred pace, the central Adirondacks will have something to satisfy the entire family.

With a multitude of shops, restaurants, and lodging options, you'll have plenty of opportunities to do something everyone in the family will enjoy during your stay. 

Pick your weekend, find lodging and then get ready to experience warm-weather events in the Adirondacks.
