The Adirondacks of Northern New York

When the light of summer fades, and green landscapes transform into a surreal palette of red and gold, autumn has arrived in the Adirondacks – and with it, a new season of adventure.

Fall Views Await

What is it about fall that so enchants us? Is it the unexpected vibrancy? The breathtaking stillness of red and gold leaves reflected in a still pool? The crisp snap to the air that heralds the end of the year? Whatever it is that thrills you, the Adirondacks offer one of the longest fall foliage seasons in the Northeast. Experience fall in the Adirondacks and enjoy fall events and festivals, visit top attractions, and find a few haunted places along the way!

Fall Festivals & Harvest Events

Fall is a time of tradition and homecoming when towns and villages across the Adirondacks celebrate the harvest and glory in the vibrant foliage. Join in the fall festivities: sail through the air during the Adirondack Balloon Festival in Lake George, kick up your heels at an Oktoberfest, spot a moose during the Great Adirondack Moose Festival, or eat all the cream cheese you can handle during Lowville's Cream Cheese Festival. From historical reenactments to family-oriented events, discover the Adirondacks' lineup of festivals and events this fall.

The Adirondack Regions
The Adirondack Regions feature over 100 welcoming communities, mountains, lakes, verdant valleys and steep cliffs. Spanning more than six million acres, the Adirondack Mountains are home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48 of the United States. Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of twelve distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the endless canoeing and kayaking in the Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake regions, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as diverse in geography as it is in activities and events. Bicycle between wineries on the Adirondack Coast, or dive to sunken shipwrecks in the Adirondack Seaway near the Canadian Border. You're invited to explore the Lake George Region's family-friendly attractions and discover the Adirondack Tug Hill Plateau's one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities.
