Family smiling at festival

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! Plus, if you purchase a VIP ticket, you have exclusive access to book our VIP Cabanas! The VIP Cabanas are almost sold out on Saturday, but we still have some available on Sunday! Click here to learn more about our VIP Cabanas, provided by Adirondack Safari and Glamp ADK, our VIP Cabana Sponsor.

We’ve listed the top 8 reasons why #SundayFunday at the Festival is simply the best! Click here to purchase tickets! Read more about tickets and offerings.

#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!

#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!

#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 TJ Clancy (magician) and Jessica Black (aerialist)

#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! 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!

#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!
