We welcome you to join us in celebrating the 47th annual Lake George Rendezvous, to be held on the village docks in Lake George, NY.
Lake George, nicknamed the “Queen of American Lakes” is 32 miles long and varies from 1-3 miles in width. There are 395 islands sprinkled throughout the crystal-clear water. Come and plan on spending the weekend exploring our beautiful lake and participate in this annual event. In addition to over 50 boats on display both in and out of the water, there will also be a land display of Model T automobiles. Food and ice cream vendors will be on site for your convenience.
See the details below, including a welcome cocktail / hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails on Friday night at the beautiful Fort William Henry Hotel. Come and catch up on old friendships and start new ones.
Conclude the weekend again at Fort William Henry Hotel, walking distance from the docks for a casual Awards dinner. Relax and rejuvenate yourself while your boats are being tended by a watchman. The dinner concludes at 6:30pm, leaving plenty of time to trailer/motor home.

You don’t get to see boats like this every day! See a wonderful variety of rare vintage motor yachts and sailboats from 1900-1960s. Meet skippers and crews and vote for your favorite boats. Children get to make their own wee boat, and all can board real ones! Boat rides, crafts market, artists, old-time band music, the Blessing of the Fleet and more!
Boats don’t have to be in show condition; they can be works-in-progress (aren’t they all!). The spirit of the Festival is to gather together the grand old craft and all who love them.
