8 Reasons Sunday at the ADK Wine & Food Festival is the BEST!
Did you know that most people attend the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival on Saturday? Well, did you also know that the best day to enjoy the ADK Wine & Food Festival is actually Sunday? Not only are General Admission tickets less expensive, but there are so many hidden benefits to going to the festival on Sunday! We also have brand new VIP Tasting Tickets this year which grant you access to the festival on both days! If you purchase a VIP ticket, you have exclusive access to book our VIP Cabanas! The VIP Cabanas are sold out on Saturday, but we still have some available on Sunday!

#1 Shorter Lines
Crowds at the festival are much smaller on Sunday making lines shorter and the atmosphere more relaxed!
Fewer attendees mean you and your friends have free reign to experience the festival grounds and all it has to offer.
This also is our most family friendly day of the festival because fewer people means an even more relaxed experience for families with children!
Enjoy shorter lines to try the wonderful hand-crafted products our 120+ vendors are sampling and displaying.
#2 More Wine
With shorter lines on Sunday, that means you’ll spend less time waiting to enjoy the fantastic wines, beer, spirits, and ciders our vendors have to offer; and more time drinking them!
With TONS of local craft beverage makers; each of them sampling 4-15 products each, you will have every opportunity to discover your new favorite craft beverages!
#3 Interact With Vendors
Fewer crowds on Sunday mean more time to interact with our vendors throughout the festival.
Nowhere else in the Adirondacks will you have the opportunity to talk with winemakers, brewers, cheesemakers, and crafters like you do at the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival!
Learn about wines you’ve never heard of, twists on craft ciders that you’ve never had before, and more!
#5 More Entertainment
The Adirondack Wine & Food Festival will have live roaming entertainment during the weekend – and you’ll really be able to enjoy the acts on Sunday since the crowds are smaller! The entertainment on Sunday includes magic from TJ Clancy, dance performances from Dynamic Dance Works, and more! Click here to view the full schedule of live entertainment.
When there isn’t live entertainment, you can enjoy music courtesy of Adirondack Broadcasting, the festival’s Exclusive Radio Station!
#7 Hang Out With The Locals
Make the festival weekend a long weekend and hang with the locals on Sunday to make the most of your festival experience – take some time to make some new friends and learn about everything Lake George has to offer!
For locals, Sunday is your best bet! The festival ends at 5pm on Sunday, so plan your drive home ahead of time and sit back and enjoy your festival purchases at home before heading back to the daily grind on Monday!
#4 The Culinary Tent
The Culinary Tent features Iron Chef-style cooking competitions. The Chefs will utilize vendor foods and craft beverages in their recipes, plus wine & beer pairing suggestions. Also under the Culinary Tent, local bartenders will demonstrate unique wine cocktail recipes sponsored by Mixaritas Mobile Bartending opposite the culinary demos, mixing new concoctions from wines and liquors available for purchase at the festival!
#6 Fun For Everyone!
Kids will have no problem staying busy throughout the festival! Our kids tent will have fun activities, games, and more for the little ones you bring along courtesy of The Fun Spot, our Official Kids Tent Sponsor!
If you’re looking for a little slower pace, shorter lines for sampling, and a laid-back atmosphere for your kids then Sunday is your day!
#8 More Value
Buying a Sunday ticket to the festival will save you money as well as get you shorter lines, more wine, vendor interactions, better access to the culinary tent, more music, and lots of fun that the entire family can enjoy together!
