It’s called The American Music Festival for the Lake, and it’s coming to Lake George for two days this weekend. The inaugural music fest is being held at the Festival Space at Charles R. Wood Park (the former site of Wood’s long defunct Gaslight Village amusement park) beginning at 12noon on Saturday and Sunday (September 20 & 21).
Saturday’s line-up features headliners Robert Randolph & the Family Band, NRBQ and others, while Sunday’s schedule features the New Riders of the Purple Sage, the Claire Lynch Band (featuring the International Bluegrass Music Association’s three-time Female Vocalist of the Year) and plenty more.
Gates open at 11am on both days. Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. Saturday ticket prices are $15 general admission; $25 seats. Sunday prices are $10 general admission; $20 seats. Youngsters under age 14 will be admitted free with parent of guardian. A portion of the festival’s income will go directly to the S.A.V.E Lake George Partnership in its continuing efforts to ensure the water quality of the lake.
BUT WAIT… We’re giving away a pair of FREE tickets to one day of the festival – your choice. To enter the contest, just post a comment below, and tell us which day you’d like to attend. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Deadline to enter in 12noon on Friday (September 19), and the winner will be selected at random and notified on Friday afternoon. Good luck!
