There's always something going on in Schroon Lake, but in the summer the arts come to the forefront. The region is filled with artistic talent in a wide range of media, especially music, which is one of the cornerstones of the Schroon Lake Region both historically and today.
Music, music, and more music
The Seagle Music Colony is the oldest summer music school in America, and the talent on display in their regular summer performances is amazing. Musicals and light opera are both offered on the Seagle schedule.
The shows begin in late June with Old Friends and New, Seagle's traditional season-opening night. The not-to-be-missed kickoff includes all 32 of the school's young artists. It's followed by a reception where the public can meet the singers.
Continuing throughout the summer, the performance schedule starts off with The Most Happy Fella, Frank Loesser's original romantic Broadway musical, which tells the story of an unlikely love that blooms in the Napa Valley.
The Jack & the Beanstalk children's opera takes to the stage in The Boathouse Theatre in downtown Schroon Lake for two morning shows on July 9 at 10 and 11 a.m. But that's just the beginning! Don't miss The Elixir of Love, Roscoe, The Music Man, or any other Seagle Music Colony performances this summer.
Every Memorial Day weekend, Schroon Lake throws open the doors to welcome summer during Opening Weekend-Schroon Lake. Help get summer rolling as everyone celebrates with vendors, live music, free yoga, restaurant and retail specials, and lots more. Come help celebrate the arrival of summer!
Adirondacks artists and crafters
Nothing says you care more than an authentic piece of Adirondack art. Some of our best artists and crafters converge on Schroon Lake on July 16 for the 47th annual Arts & Crafts Fair.
This event has long-standing roots in the community and it shows — 47 years and counting is a long time. It attracts more than 100 vendors to the town park, which overlooks the public beach and lake.
Profits from the event go to the Schroon Lake Association for the protection and preservation of the lake. Shop and find great crafts, and help maintain the pristine beauty of this most magnificent of lakes.
In what many have described as the best ride of their lives, Cycle Adirondacks kicks off its second year of citizen cycling through the Adirondacks.

There's no better way to begin or end this awesome tour of the Adirondacks than a stay in Schroon Lake, and after the long ride you'll certainly deserve it.
