Adirondack Global Arts Festival was created with the purpose of promoting culturally diverse arts programming in the Adirondacks. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts, Reason2Smile, Adirondack Diversity Initiative, John Brown Lives, and Adirondack Film Society have collaborated to bring this festival to the communities of the Adirondacks.
The festival this year is diverse and includes in-school programming, restaurant events, LPCA events, and more. In school events are slated for March 6, 8, and 9 at Westport School, and a screening of the movie Coco for area students in the Spanish language arts, March 9 at LPCA. Friday evening, March 9, brings music events to two local restaurants including a live broadcast of the Beat Authority. Saturday morning, March 10, is Kids Fest in Saranac Lake at the Adirondack Carousel. Our festival culminates with all afternoon and evening programming Saturday March 10 at the LPCA. Workshops for all ages, an indoor street fair, and performances all within the theme of Global Arts.
This year’s festival brings three headlining performers to the LPCA from the Burlington area. Taiko Japanese drummers, Jeh Kulu West African Drum and Dance Troupe and Sabouyouma Funk Fusion West African Band. Our street fair and workshops will range from Tibetan singing bowls and henna tatoos, to Kenyan goods and Caribbean food.
