About Jazz at the Lake:
Now in our 40th year, Jazz at the Lake is one of the Northeast’s premier jazz festivals. Set against the backdrop of beautiful Lake George, Jazz at the Lake (Lake George Jazz Weekend) celebrates the vibrant and diverse genre of jazz and brings together talented musicians from around the country.

Our festival presents a total of 17 performances from a wide variety of artists who perform in a variety of jazz styles. 8 of the performances built into our festival take place on the stage in Shepard Park (Lake George) and another 9 performances take place at partner locations throughout the Town and Village. Over the past few years, our festival has evolved from a two-day program with 7 performances into a three-day, immersive experience designed to lift the arts, artists, local businesses, and the community.
