There are a bunch of ways you can experience the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival. If you’re considering a General Admission Tasting Ticket, here’s our latest blog post about why we feel it’s a fantastic ticket to choose. This article is all about what’s included in your ticket, and some recommendations on how to make the most of your weekend in Lake George, New York!
Here’s what’s included in your GA Tasting Ticket…all the basics needed to party at the festival!
- 1 Adirondack Wine & Food Festival Souvenir Glass!
- A Festival Bag and Program to help navigate the festival and take notes on your favorite products!
- Small samples from our wineries, craft beverage and artisan food vendors (excludes food trucks)!
- FREE Utilization of our Drop-Off / Pick-Up service to take full advantage of the “Try Before You Buy” Experience our vendors have to offer!
- A portion of your ticket price benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Adirondacks (In 2018 they raised $11K thru our event – our goal is even higher in 2019!)
Vendors, Vendors, and more Vendors!
With a General Admission ticket, you will gain access to over 120 vendors including wineries, distilleries, cideries, breweries, meaderies, non-alcoholic craft beverage vendors, artisan food vendors, food trucks, artisan crafters and more! All food and beverage vendors will be giving out free samples, so pace yourself and have fun! You will also have access to the improved culinary demonstrations and other activities that the festival has to offer this year.
If you’re looking to throw down and party, Saturday is your day to attend when the majority of attendees explore the festival.
However, if you’re looking for a little slower pace, shorter lines for sampling and fun activities like “Wine & Chocolate for Enthusiasts” from Barkeater Chocolates Co. and other Sip and Craft events, then Sunday is your day! Take your time and enjoy the festival weekend! To find out all the reasons you should snag a Sunday Tasting Ticket, click on this link to read our Sunday Funday blog.
There’s nothing “general” about our General Admission Tasting Tickets.
If you’re trying to decide whether to hit the festival VIP or General Admission style, keep in mind that there’s nothing “general” about the GA Tasting Ticket- it’s an amazing experience worth every penny and could be the perfect fit for you and your festie friends. Unlimited food and beverage samples, hours of access to vendors of all kinds, and you get all the necessary items to take on the festival, ready to rock. Be sure to check out the merch tent staffed by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks for essential festival survivor gear like hands-free wine glass necklaces and wine glass koozies…a portion of every piece of festival merchandise that’s purchased is donated to this incredible organization- SPLURGE FOR CHARITY? I’ll take two… 😉
Saving some $$ on your festival ticket means you can spend more $$ doing other things in LG!
There is TONS to do in the Lake George region…LG is also the gateway to the Adirondack Mountains, and the attractions and activities in the area are some of the best in the country. One of our favorite things to do is take a lake cruise on one of Lake George Steamboat Company’s historic steamboats! Sunset dinner cruise anyone? **Toot-toot**
