LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. – This winter, Lake George, N.Y., will welcome a pair of magical celebrations to delight people of all ages:

  • In December, Lake George Winter’s Dream, a brand-new outdoor immersive multimedia experience, will unfold at the Fort William Henry historical fortress. Surrounding visitors in light, sound, original music, video projection and interactivity, the experience will recall the rich emotions, sensations and magic of the winter season. The attraction will unfold in the Fort's outdoor courtyard and on its four bastions.
  • Next Door to Fort William Henry, at Festival Commons in Lake George, Winter Realms: The Wintertainment Destination will enchant visitors with ice skating, dazzling lights, larger-than-life motifs, a sculpture park, igloos, Santa’s Village, a Polar Ice Bar, and a variety of other winter attractions.

Winter Realms will open on Friday, Nov. 24, 2023, coinciding with Lake George’s Lite Up the Village Holiday kickoff event. Tickets for Winter Realms will go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023. Winter’s Dream will open in early December. To join the waiting list for Winter’s Dream tickets, or receive updates, please visit
