Please note this is an expanded schedule. For those of you who cannot come for the whole week, you may come for just the Thurs-Saturday events. We also may have an optional Show & Sale on Sunday, for those who wish to stay over, since that has been the traditional exhibit day and some area collectors may come on Sunday expecting the Show & Sale that day.

We also are planning to have a workshop or 2 at the beginning of the week and are working on finalizing those plans. Please check back later for updates.

IMPORTANT: Lodging - there is a week long bike tour of the Adirondacks starting in Saranac Lake on Saturday Aug 22, so for those of you seeking lodging or campsites, it would be a good idea to make reservations early.



2014Adirondack Plein Air Festival

THE 2014 EVENT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS - CLICK ON "AWARDS" TO SEE MORE

2014 marks the 6th Adirondack Plein Air Festival and plans are underway to make it even bigger and better - the most unique Plein Air event in the Northeast. Our Adirondack Mountain scenery is unmatchable! We have mountains, lakes, rivers, ponds, marshes and bogs, towering white pine forests, maple, birch and mixed hardwood covered slopes, farm land, and the charming, historic mountain village of Saranac Lake.

Plans are underway for 2015, including a promise to add some major cash prizes to the Awards and including one for Pastels. Watch for updates soon.
