Presented by Caroga Arts Collective, Caroga Lake Music Festival is a multi-genre music festival presenting a series of world-class performances in the Southern Adirondacks. Since the festival’s founding in 2012, Caroga Lake Music Festival has grown from a one week chamber music festival to an internationally recognized festival showcasing a multitude of genres from May to September. The mainstay of the festival is a five-week summer residency featuring renowned soloists, chamber musicians, and orchestral professionals, in collaboration with international touring guest artists.
Located on the shore of West Caroga Lake, Sherman’s Park is the home base for the Caroga Lake Music Festival. Known as a venue for iconic big bands in the 1920’s and 1930’s, Sherman’s provides the perfect up-close setting for an engaging and memorable concertgoing experience. Whether its a ride on the historic carousel, a stroll along the lake at sunset or a personal conversation with an artist post-concert, the Caroga Lake Music Festival experience at Sherman’s is unlike anything else.
Caroga Lake Music Festival regularly attracts thousands of audience members from locally and afar to its concerts, helping spur tourism and economic growth for the town. In addition to Sherman’s Park, Caroga Lake Music Festival performs at venues across the region throughout the year.
