Daffest celebrates the coming of spring with the bloom of thousands of daffodil bulbs all throughout the Saranac Lake area. Each year the number of bulbs increase as the celebration grows. In addition to the endless flower display, there is the Daffest Derby, a soap box race on a great hill. There are wine and pastry festivals, garden tours, specialty arts and crafts, along with the Saranac Lake Chamber's "Zoom in Bloom" 5K Run/Walk through the neighborhoods of Saranac Lake. Our historic downtown offers a central location that is easily walkable and has many dining and shopping venues. Explore the lodging possibilities and see if there’s a package or special that’s right for you. It’s also a great time to get in some spring hiking.
