Time For More Fun: Are You Ready?

More fun, more sun – it’s another big week in Schroon and beyond  -- and we’ve got your handy, dandy guide, right here for July 26 - July 30


We are hearing this summer’s crops are a bumper, and the vendors at the Schroon Lake Farmer’s Market have the pick of the crop.

There are terrific salad greens and tomatoes – organic meats and fresh baked goodies. Pick up a bottle of homemade wine and you have yourself a complete meal. (9am on the lawn of the Town Hall).

On Monday night check out the talent on stage at the acoustic  band jam session – great tunes and a fun time for all. The Schroon Lake Arts Council proudly sponsors the event. Free! The fun starts at 7pm.


If your don’t have access to a boat on your vacation -- and you’d like to get out on the lake --the Schroon Lake Boat Tour, is a great way to get a view you may not have seen before. But the real reason for the tour is to learn about Schroon’s fascinating history.

The tour is full of rich details about the town’s grandest days, when  guests would arrive to lakeside resorts via steamboat, after a horse and carriage picked them up after a long train rides from New York. 11am.Get your tickets in advance from the Schroon Lake Chamber Office.

Tuesday’s Boat House Concert features the Boxcar Lilies. The show is at 8pm and tickets are an amazing value: $12 for adults and $5 for children. Proudly sponsored by the Schroon Lake Arts Council.
