About the Adirondack Wine & Food Festival
Take your taste buds on an unforgettable journey as you are introduced to over 90 New York State wineries, breweries, distilleries, cideries, artisan food vendors, food trucks and more, with the beauty of Lake George as your backdrop!
Founded by Sasha Pardy in 2014, Adirondack Festivals LLC is based out of Queensbury, New York and is the organizer of the Adirondack Wine and Food Festival.
The 4th Annual Adirondack Wine & Food Festival was held June 23rd & 24th at Charles R. Wood Festival Commons (former Gaslight Village) in the heart of Lake George, New York. The festival is a celebration of the amazing wines, craft beverages, artisan foods and more that New York State’s finest producers have to offer! With a tasting ticket, attendees use their souvenir wine glass to sample wines, beers, spirits, ciders and unique food products from over 90 vendors in a farmer’s market style set-up. All vendors will also be selling their products for people to take home and the Festival makes that easy by providing a Purchase Drop-Off/Pick-Up tent for attendees to utilize. Food Trucks will also be offering unique food selections at a-la-carte pricing.
The designated beneficiary of the 2018 Adirondack Wine and Food Festival was Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Southern Adirondacks – their volunteers were on hand all weekend long helping the event run smoothly and raising money through water & t-shirt sales & more.
The Chef William Creations Culinary Tent, sponsored by Marcella’s Appliance, featured cooking demonstrations performed by Finger Lakes Celebrity Chef William Cornelius and special guests all weekend long. The Chef utilized his proprietary sauces, local foods and craft beverages in his recipes, as well as providing wine pairing suggestions. Also under the Culinary Tent all weekend, local bartenders demonstrated unique Wine Cocktail recipes opposite the culinary demos, mixing new concoctions from wines and liquors available for purchase at the festival! This exciting new addition to the festival was sponsored by the Lake George Bar Crawl and Bolton Boat Tours. Also, Marcella’s Appliance was adjacent to the culinary tent, smoking meats on Big Green Egg Grills both days of the festival, ending with a “fest taste test” of these delicious meats.
The Adirondack Wine & Food Festival has quickly become one of the largest Wine Festivals in New York State and is recognized as a premier event for the Lake George Region. The 2018 Festival was the biggest yet, with a record 6,376 tickets sold and an estimated $1.87 Million economic impact on the Greater Lake George Region. The fourth-annual, family-friendly wine and food spectacular, despite a weekend filled with rain, sold 8 percent more tickets than last year. Counting festival vendors and volunteers, 6,393 passed through the gates over the course of the festival’s two days, shattering the previous attendance record for Charles R. Wood Festival Commons in the Village of Lake George.
