Lake George Kris Kringle Christmas Festival will be held at
Charles R. Wood Festival Park, Lake George, NY
Saturday & Sunday, September 23rd & 24th
Event Hours Are:
Saturday from 9 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm
The hours on Saturday are 9 am to caption the day trip folks who come down for the day, locals, and the folks that are looking for a day event. We are going until 9 pm for all the folks that are out on the lake and doing lake things, folks that are wanting the evening time to get out; they are at work and to then caption them for a night event, to come to eat dinner and walk around and enjoy. For some people, it’s something to do after dinner. We believe events that end between 4 and 6 pm on Saturdays have a decreased amount of attendance.
Free Admission for attendees, In today’s new economic environment we must take a different approach in the promotions of our events to maximize attendance; first and foremost, we realized that charging to enter an event restricts attendance, so we do not charge to enter our events, admission is free to all. Secondly, we are working on marketing campaigns that will increase attendance. We have created a free raffle pool to award a tier of 3 prizes with a raffle to the attendees along with a surprise gift to all that enter.
Vendors will have their booth Christmas theme decorated. Rather it’s with gift sets and outlet styles for some back-to-school and winter fashion. Your products must be Christmas-related; from take-home items that can be eaten at home, to jams, sauces, and baked goods. Christmas art, and crafts, paintings that have Christmas in design. If you have a question about your products fitting into our show please email us at [email protected]
Our Christmas show will have outlet deals to attract shoppers, school shopping, and more. Santa in September with pictures, we will have themed toy sections and a collectible section. This event is also the same weekend as the balloon festival; they launch in the morning and evening, so they will be happy to spend the day shopping after and before the evening launches. September the weather is amazing so the temperatures will be great to shop, & people are still out and about.
We will utilize radio, tv, social media, print, local guidebooks, posters, magazines, street banners, and any other effective media advertising campaigns. We will be utilizing a public relations firm to assist in our media reach besides local and vacationers that are present. We want to drive new traffic for our events, which will effectively be implemented in, NY, NJ, PA, NH, MA, VT, and Canada; within a greater reach of 100 miles plus of events. In our vendor portal, we will post our advertising “if you would like to post to your social media”.
