New York Festivals & Annual Events

Celebrate food, art, and entertainment in New York State.

Winter in New York State means festival fun, family-friendly events, snowy celebrations, and opportunities to take in memorable events like President's Day Winter Festival on Chautauqua Lake.

Throughout the winter, New Yorkers celebrate with ice displays, fireworks shows, live music, parades, and more! Dating back to 1897, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival showcases the winter wonderland that is the Adirondacks at a variety of venues for over a week starting in late January. In February, the Lake George Winter Carnival takes place each weekend, with polar plunges, pony rides, a human foosball tournament, and all sorts of family fun activities. On February 2, 2020, Hanford Mills Museum in the Catskills hosts the 30th annual Ice Harvest Festival, with hands-on experiences using historic tools and techniques. 

Winter sports enthusiasts will want to head to the Adirondacks January 30-February 2, 2020 for the 40th anniversary Empire State Winter Games, with Olympics-style competitions drawing over 2,000 athletes of all ages. The range of competitions includes bobsled, luge, figure skating, skiing, and adaptive Alpine, biathlon, and more! 

For a winter event with a literary touch, the annual Dickens Christmas in Skaneateles features music, light displays, and a reading of "Twas the Night Before Christmas." Meanwhile, Long Island has a Dickens festival as well, transforming the village of Port Jefferson into a Dickensian-era scene with Father Christmas, Scrooge, and other familiar characters.
