The Ticonderoga Festival Guild’s summer series begins its 42nd season
The Ticonderoga Festival Guild launches its 42nd season of free summer concerts and children’s programs for all to enjoy starting July 6.
The children’s program, “Art Trek,” will run every Wednesday beginning at 10:15 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus Pavilion, with opening act by Michael Caduto. Children’s concerts will feature a wide variety of entertainment from professional artists, including opera, theatre, music, storytelling, dancing, unicycling, fire-eaters and juggling.
The summer concert series, known as “Summer In The Park,” kicks off Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. at the clubhouse beginning with the ADK Jazz Repertoire Ensemble on July 12. Musicians from genres such as bluegrass, jazz, country, folk, Americana, Irish and rock will also put on exciting performances to keep audiences relaxed and entertained throughout the summer.
The Ticonderoga Festival Guild was established in 1980 as a nonprofit organization that aims to showcase and advance the performing arts in the city. The guild offers a diverse program in the region throughout the year that the community can participate in.
The Ticonderoga Festival Guild has been providing programs for decades in the area just between Lake George and Lake Champlain. Ticonderoga is well known for its fort of the same name, which was important during the French and Indian War, and the Revolutionary War during the Saratoga Campaign. Ticonderoga in its entirety has a rich history and is a beautiful place to visit.
The full schedule for the Summer In The Park and Art Trek programs can be found below and will perform rain or shine. The public is welcome to bring chairs and enjoy the programs. The 2022 season is also dedicated to the memory of dear friend and Guild organizer, Jim Beaty.
