2023 Adirondack Wine & Food Festival
The seventh annual weekend food festival in Lake George is bigger than ever, with more than 120 vendors and a new “food truck alley”.
Adirondack Wine & Food Festival
In 2023, the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival returns to Lake George on June 24 & June 25. Now in its seventh year, the Festival will feature more than 120 of New York’s best wineries, distilleries, breweries, cideries, artisan food producers, food trucks, crafters, and more at the Charles R. Wood Festival Commons in Lake George Village.
New this year, the Festival is expanding onto the adjacent Betty Little Boulevard, launching a “Food Truck Alley”, with 15 food trucks and several local artisans and festival sponsors. There will be free public access to Food Truck Alley.
Throughout the weekend, attendees will enjoy Culinary and Cocktail demonstrations and competitions. These segments feature the festival’s resident chef, Chef Eric Hudson (owner of Hudson’s Private Chef Services) and resident Mixologist, Kelli Hatin (owner of Mixaritas Mobile Bartending and SUNY Adirondack Business Professor) as they prepare food and drink made with ingredients supplied by Festival vendors. There will even be “Iron Chef”-style cooking and mixology competitions with secret ingredients from festival vendors.
Also new this year, Festival Entertainment is “amped up”, with a 2-day lineup of local solo musicians arranged by 518 Rock, plus the impressive Street Magic of TJ Clancy and stilt walking and aerial work from Jessica Black.
Adirondack Brewery will be running a brand new Biergarten this year.
