Essex County Arts Council visits Ticonderoga!

ECAC President Rebecca Kelly and her husband, Craig Brashear, spent an educational day in Ticonderoga recently, visiting several of the ECAC CAP-grant-funded organizations there. Each year ECAC supports a myriad of programs in the Ticonderoga region with Cultural Assistance Program funds. If you haven’t visited Ticonderoga recently, it’s time you did! Don’t miss the following:

Ticonderoga Arts, Inc: With a gallery on Montcalm St, Ti Arts features exhibits and classes in a wide range of mediums. CAP funds will help support a juried art show in the fall, called “Sense of Place.”

Ticonderoga Heritage Museum: The Heritage Museums and Visitors Center is located at the end of Montcalm St, with so much history crammed into a small building! Here, you can learn the history of the Ticonderoga pencil, among other things. CAP funds their annual summer children’s workshops.

Lower Adirondack Region Center for History: maintains a wonderful museum right on Moses Circle in the Hancock House. CAP funds will help to support their 2024 Program Series.

Fort Ticonderoga: CAP funded “Scots Day – 2024,” on June 15th, but a visit to the Fort is always an exciting and informative trip back in history!

Other events in Ticonderoga that CAP funds support:

Ticonderoga Festival Guild’s summer concert series – https://tifestivalguild.org/

Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce – music at the Farmers’ Markets.

Ti/Montcalm Partnership – Fall Fest on September 28, 2024.

Shepard Park amphitheater destroyed in fire

Today is a sad day for Lake George.

As many of you may have heard, early Sunday morning there was a fire that destroyed the bandstand in Shepard Park. Lake George will not be deterred though.


The Village and friends are already working on plans to ensure this summer season is as enjoyable and memorable as all of the summers before it.

As the final plan is laid out, we will keep everybody posted on the status of our Summer Concert Series. The Village, the Arts Project, and we know everybody else in our community, are all hopeful that the shows will go on!

Watch for updates HERE.

In addition, The Gibson Brothers have made appearances at The Grand Ole Opry, and on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. These guys are the real country deal!
