Fall in the Lake Champlain Region brings with it a calendar full of events to celebrate the season. From festivals to historical re-enactments, the region's events will keep you occupied during a weekend outing or longer stay.

Farmers' markets abound and so do their wares during this harvest season. The Lake Champlain Region offers farmers a long growing season and farms are numerous here. Willsboro, Elizabethtown, Ticonderoga, and Port Henry all offer weekly markets to choose from, so you're sure to find one on a day you happen to be in the area.

There are some pretty cool historical events, especially at Fort Ticonderoga and Crown Point, bastions of the colonial wars. One of our favorites is Ticonderoga Guns by Night when you can actually hear the roar of muskets and cannons as their flashes light up the night sky.

There are holiday celebrations in many communities throughout the region and festivals celebrating the season's harvest and the end to summer. For fishing enthusiasts, there are Ticonderoga's Bass fishing tournaments stretching into October on Lake Champlain.

Additionally, join one of the cultural events at several local venues such as the Otis Mountain Get Down in Elizabethtown, an all-day music fest featuring top-notch bluegrass, intertwined with acts of all genres. The Town of Moriah also celebrates the end of summer with its Labor Day Celebration.

One of the highlights of the cultural scene in fall is the Artist at Work Studio Tour when artists from three regions throw open the doors of their studios to the public for three days. The tour makes for a great day of exploring the countryside in addition to seeing artists at work in their studios.
