The Lake Champlain Region, with its majestic mountains, scenic lakes, and historic communities, has long been a destination for artists and writers alike, each one eager to be inspired by the beautiful natural landscape and peaceful solitude. Today, the region is home to a bustling arts community offering galleries, exhibits, Lake Champlain events, festivals, and venues for creative pursuits.
Artistic creativity and historic sites
For an evening of world-class performances with historic charm, don't miss the charming Depot Theatre, a restored 1876 train station — and one of the more popular Lake Champlain attractions — that plays hosts to professional artists throughout the year. Also in Westport is the Meadowmount School of Music, a summer school for aspiring professional musicians where visitors can catch inspiring concerts from students, faculty, and distinguished guests during the summer months.
In the historic town of Essex, visit a variety of art galleries and shops, and attend creative workshops. Discover handcrafted goods, antiques, collectibles, and view local artwork. Stop by the Heritage House in Westport for music and art by local artists, or visit the Hand House Parlor in Elizabethtown and enjpy concerts and performances highlighting 20th century works with instrumental combinations.
Throughout all four seasons, find an array of artistic offerings, celebrations, and festivals on the Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain! View the list of Lake Champlain lodging and book your trip today.
