Snowmobile demo ride participants

Old Forge, NY – Snofest 2023 will be returning to the George T. Hiltebrant Recreation Center on Friday and Saturday, March 10 and 11. The popular event offers visitors the only chance in the North East to see new 2024 snowmobiles and gear featured by Arctic Cat, Polaris, and Ski-Doo. Special deals on sleds and accessories will be available, as well as demo rides sponsored by Arctic Cat (weather and conditions permitting.) The hours of operation for this year’s Snofest are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, when the North Street pavilion will be filled with snowmobiles, sled accessories, vendors, raffles, and food and beverage specials.

On Saturday evening, a fireworks display will illuminate the lakefront in Old Forge and will be visible from throughout the village. The towns of Webb and Inlet are offering a special Snofest trail permit promotion.  Buy your 2023-2024 snowmobile trail permit for $80 (pre-season rate) and ride the rest of this season for free.  This special is only available on March 10 and 11 at the Old Forge and Inlet Information Centers (permits must be purchased in person.)
