Garlic & Pepper Festival

Lake George Garlic & Pepper Festival will be held at

Charles R. Wood Festival Park, Lake George, NY

Saturday & Sunday, September 16th & 17th

Festival Hours are Saturday from 11 am to 10 pm

Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm

The hours on Saturday are 11 am to caption the day trip folks who come down for the day, locals, and folks that are looking for a day event. We are going until 10 pm for all the folks that are out on the lake and doing lake things, folks that are wanting the cooler time to get out. They are still at work and then caption them for an evening event, to come to eat dinner, walk around and enjoy something to do after dinner. We believe events that end between 4 and 6 on Saturdays have a decreased amount of attendance.

Free Admission for attendees, in today’s new economic environment we must take a different approach in the promotions of our events to maximize attendance; First and foremost, we realized that charging to enter an event restricts attendance, so we do not charge to enter our events, admission is free to all. Secondly, we are working on marketing campaigns that will increase attendance, we created a free raffle pool to award a tier of 3 prizes with a raffle to the attendees. and a surprise gift to all that enter.

Vendors will have a garlic and pepper theme decorated booth; some of your products are garlic and pepper related. Take-home items that can be eaten at home such as jams, hot sauces, baked goods, garlic art, crafts that have garlic and pepper in design, garlic farmers, etc. If you have a question about your products email us at

We will utilize radio, tv, social media, print, local guidebooks, posters, magazines, street banners, and any other effective media advertising campaigns. We will be utilizing a public relations firm to assist in our media reach besides local and vacationers that are present. We want to drive new traffic for our events, which will effectively be implemented in, NY, NJ, PA, NH, MA, VT, and Canada, within a greater reach of 100 miles plus of events. In our vendor portal, we will post our advertising “if you would like to post to your social media”.

Please fill out the application and send it to our office to be put on our list. No deposits at this point are needed, once you are approved to be a part of our show, we will send you payment information.

All our events will have great food attractions, with exciting food tents, vendors, and entertainment while they eat. We will emphasize food, chef demonstrations, and tasting, as we are serious about food promotions, which attract people.

Our sponsors and entertainment will be updated weekly!
