Lake George Winter Carnival

All weekends in February

Lake George Winter Carnival, held since 1961, begins this weekend featuring its ever-popular Outhouse Races, whether or not the lake’s ice has formed in time.

Relish the warmth of tasty samples during the chowder, chili, BBQ, and chicken wing cook-offs. Witness the always hilarious and fun outhouse races—a crowd pleasing favorite – as well as ATV races, polar plunges, fireworks, and more.

Kids can participate in children’s activities, go for a pony ride, and sip hot chocolate. And that’s just a sample; there’s so much fun for everyone.
