Caroga Lake Music Festival Presents Winter Fest 2022!
The Caroga Lake Music Festival presents its Winter Fest series of four performances beginning December 14 through December 17, 2022 at multiple locations in Fulton County NY.
The Caroga Arts Collective is based in Caroga Lake at the former Shermans Amusement Park in the Town of Caroga, NY. Since 2012 the organization has been passionate about making the arts accessible in the Adirondacks while building special connections with artists and communities and opening new doors of creative possibilities in both the arts and the community.
I remember growing up in the area and we were never too far from Caroga Lake and Shermans Amusement Park. When my brothers and I were young, whenever we joined our mother on the trek to Gloversville shopping, we always passed by the amusement park at Shermans. And each time, like running the gauntlet, my Mom endured the pleadings of her young sons’ ceaseless, pitiful pleadings, “Please can we stop and go on the rides when we come back?” “Pleeeeeaaasse!?!?!?”
We did visit Shermans Amusement Park several times over the years while growing up, but not as often as we would have liked. I remember the excitement of the experience. The lights, the music, the smell of popcorn and cotton candy added to the feeling of anticipation – excitement of what we’d discover around the corner. The candied apples were always a treat and the bumper car rides were my favorite!
Home to the Arts
These days Shermans Park is home base for the Caroga Arts Collective. The Caroga Lake Music Festival, a program of the Caroga Arts Collective, presents over fifty performances and community events featuring world-class artists from various styles of arts and entertainment in the Southern Adirondacks and Northern Mohawk Valley throughout the year. Winter Fest is a great opportunity to experience these performances first hand to help get into the holiday spirit!
Creating new memories in familiar places
The Caroga Arts Collect is now bringing a different kind of wonder and excitement to the area that is taking root at Shermans Park and expanding throughout the Region. Take in one or all of the WinerFest performances will certainly bring you some holiday cheer and will add to your holiday memories for years to come.
