Indian Lake N.Y.  – The Great Adirondack Moose Festival, New York State’s first ever moose themed festival, offers visitors of all ages a fantastic Adirondack experience.  Held in Indian Lake, N.Y. in the center of the famous Adirondack Park, moose themed programs will abound the weekend of September 25 and 26, 2021. 

Visitors to the Indian Lake region for the Moose Festival will enjoy programs, games, contests, exhibitions, guided hikes, shopping – all in the theme of the Moose.  The half-ton mammal is making a come-back in the Adirondacks, so one may even spot one during the weekend. The Great Adirondack Moose Festival (GAMF) is sponsored by the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and a host of regional and local business sponsors.

The GAMF is designed to offer visitors of all ages a purely Adirondack experience as a two-day destination event.  As always this year’s GAMF will feature Adirondack style and moose themed activities such as our very popular Moose Calling Contest; guided wilderness hikes; Moose River Plains self guided driving wilderness tour; helicopter flights; white water rafting; historic Blue Mountain Lake boat cruise; Old Fashion Turkey Shoot; Indian Lake Museum-Open House; Count the Moose Scat Contest; Moosterpiece games and activities for children; North County Crafter and Vendors in the Big Moose Tent and Current Adirondack Moose Research Department of Environmental Conservation annual presentation and much more.  

According to the event chairs Brenda Valentine and Darrin Harr, “The festival is a celebration of the return of the moose to the Adirondacks and is designed to offer a multigenerational Adirondack experience.  This community-wide event features a host of Adirondack style and moose-themed family fun activities.”

The GAMF is also held during peak fall foliage, so visitors will enjoy the beautiful colors in the Central Adirondacks. Most festival activities are free and do not require advance registration.
