10th Annual Great Adirondack Moose Festival Planned

The 10th Annual Great Adirondack Moose Festival has been set for the weekend of September 28 and 29, 2019. Held in Indian Lake, the Moose Festival offers visitors of all ages a uniquely Adirondack experience.

Visitors to the Indian Lake region for the Moose Festival can enjoy programs, games, contests, exhibitions, guided tours, shopping – all in the theme of the Moose.

The half-ton mammal is making a comeback in the Adirondacks, so you may even spot one during the weekend. The Annual Great Adirondack Moose Festival is sponsored by the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and a host of regional and local business sponsors.

The Moose Festival is designed to offer visitors of all ages a purely Adirondack experience as a two-day destination event.

As always, this year’s Moose Fest will feature Adirondack style and moose-themed activities such as popular Moose Calling Contest; white-water rafting; guided wilderness hikes; a Moose River Plains self-guided driving tour; fly-tying demonstrations; a historic Blue Mountain Lake boat cruise; the Old Fashion Turkey Shoot; the Indian Lake Museum’s Open House; A Count the Moose Scat Contest; Moosterpiece games and activities for children; a North County Crafter and Vendor Show in the Big Moose Tent; and much more.

Most festival activities are free and do not require advance registration. For more information visit Indian Lake’s website, or call (518) 648-5636 or (518) 648-5112.
