Many of you will be driving in for the festival from out of town, which means that by the time you get here you’ll be ready to stretch your legs, use the bathroom, and grab a snack! Luckily for you, the Adirondacks Welcome Center is right on I-87 between Exits 17 & 18, just 15 minutes from the Festival Commons! It’s the perfect place to rejuvenate before you hit the festival.
Only a few years old, the Adirondacks Welcome Center puts other rest stops to shame. It’s spacious with nice clean bathrooms and even has a playground outside if you’re traveling with kids! Plus, you can’t leave without taking a picture by the I Love NY sign.
If you’re planning to stick in town for a few days, the Welcome Center has interactive I Love NY kiosks to help you plan your trip and find things to do in the area. There is also a pet comfort area, free Wi-Fi, and phone charging stations.
The best part about the Adirondacks Welcome Center is the food and beverages showcased in Taste NY vending machines! You can try things like craft sodas, maple syrup, artisan cheeses, and more. You can even get a sneak peek at some of the 120 vendors that will be at the festival! We recommend coming to the festival with a plan, so it’s a great opportunity to scope out the vendors and decide who you want to try more from. Here’s what you can find from our vendors at the Welcome Center:
- Craft soda from Adirondack Pub & Brewery
- Cheese curds and yogurt from Argyle Cheese Farmer
- Cheese from Nettle Meadow
- Crackers from Saratoga Crackers
- Lake keychains from Love is on Lake George
- Candles from Wax n Wix
