LAKE GEORGE, NY (January 8, 2024) — Preparations are underway for the grooviest winter bash in the Adirondacks so grab your crew and get ready to get funky!

Here’s the lowdown: Funky Ice Fest returns to Adirondack Pub & Brewery located at 33 Canada Street, Lake George, on Jan. 20 and 21 and Jan. 26 and 27 — the last Fridays and Saturdays in January — from 4 to 9 p.m.

Funky Ice Fest has been bringin' the vibes since 2016, carving out a one-of-a-kind experience to groove outside beneath the winter moon and a disco ball while sipping craft cocktails and other locally-made Adirondack Brewery beer and drinks. The Pub serves up a far out ice bar experience with a side of nostalgia complete with funky tunes, classic arcade games like Pac-Man, and a whole lotta chill. Show up in your grooviest threads and rock those afros handed out by the Pub. Plus, they’re not just servin' up hand-crafted cocktails – Adirondack Brewery's bringing the craft beer and beverages, and tasty food specials, too.

“Prevent cabin fever, Get out and have some fun outdoors dancing under the stars. It’s like a celebration of funk and disco wrapped into one. Every year it grows and becomes more funky and fun,” said John Carr, Founder of Adirondack Pub and Brewery.

Picture this: tons of Instagram-worthy photo ops with a variety of ice sculptures. In addition to the ice lounge complete with full bar and high top tables, sculptors Kirk Sheloski and Anthony Giorgianni are carving an ice throne, ensemble of instruments including a playable piano, harp, standup bass, xylophone and more, as well as animals, crystals and other fun smaller sculptures. The craft cocktail menu features award-winning spirits from High Peaks Distilling, John Carr’s distillery next door.

Admission is free.
