Daffest: Celebrating spring in Saranac Lake
Visit us while we're in bloom

Saranac Lake's Daffodil Festival

 

Daffest celebrates the coming of spring with the bloom of thousands of daffodil bulbs all throughout the Saranac Lake area. Each year the number of bulbs increase as the celebration grows. Come welcome spring with us this year! 

In addition to the endless flower display, there is the Daffest Derby, a soap box race on a great hill. There is a 'Try Mine' pastry contest, garden tours, along with the Saranac Lake Chamber's "Zoom in Bloom" 5K Run/Walk through the neighborhoods of Saranac Lake.

Our historic downtown offers a central location that is easily walkable and has many dining and shopping venues. Explore the lodging possibilities and see if there’s a package or special that’s right for you. It’s also a great time to get in some spring hiking.
