Dedicated to arts in our community.

The Schroon Lake Arts Council is thrilled to be presenting our 50 th year of LIVE music at our historic Bandstand overlooking the pearl of the Adirondacks, gorgeous Schroon Lake, or in our 1874 iconic, intimate, acoustically wonderfull Boathouse theatre.

This year our theme will be the Roots of Adirondack music, highlighting the diverse influences from all over the world that have helped create what we know as “Adirondack” style. We wish to thank the many volunteers, staff, the Town of Schroon, the many local businesses, Chamber of Commerce and all the wonderful music lovers who have helped LIVE music on Schroon Lake not only survive, but truly THRIVE for 50 years!. As all of our concerts, as well as our Folk Festival, are totally FREE, we have helped make Schroon Lake THE destination for great Live music all summer long!

Please come out and enjoy the music! And why not become a SPONSOR?
