A thriving arts scene
Saranac Lake is a magnet for creative types, which is why visitors can find art around every corner, sometimes in the unlikeliest of places. Artists past and present have left their marks by painting, collaging, photographing, assembling, and sculpting, and we are the better for it. Start by taking a look in our galleries, restaurants, and shops and you’ll see an array of visual art pieces that range from plein air to contemporary. Step outside and keep your eyes peeled — you’re likely to find a mural, sidewalk art, or a gigantic metal lawn serpent!
The first Friday of every month is a great time to be in Saranac Lake, as our galleries all host art openings.
Pendragon Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre and the only year-round professional repertory in the Adirondacks. They offer a full range of live performances like revived Broadway classics, family-friendly plays, and seasonal offerings. BluSeed Studios is also a must-visit space. Check out the contemporary art in the upstairs gallery, catch some live music, or take a workshop on the ground floor.
