INDIAN LAKE — The Great Adirondack Moose Festival, New York state’s first ever moose-themed festival, offers visitors of all ages a fantastic Adirondack experience. Held in the center of the Adirondack Park, moose-themed programs will abound the weekend of Saturday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Sept. 29.

Visitors to the Indian Lake region for the Moose Festival will enjoy programs, games, contests, exhibitions, guided hikes, shopping. The half-ton mammal is making a come-back in the Adirondacks, so one may even be spotted during the weekend. The annual Great Adirondack Moose Festival is sponsored by the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and a host of regional and local business sponsors.

The GAMF is designed to offer visitors a purely Adirondack experience as a two-day destination event. As always, this year’s GAMF will feature Adirondack-style and moose-themed activities such as the popular Moose Calling Contest; guided wilderness hikes; Moose River Plains self-guided driving wilderness tour; helicopter rides; white water rafting; historic Blue Mountain Lake boat cruise; Old Fashion Turkey Shoot; Indian Lake Museum-Open House; Count the Moose Scat Contest; Moosterpiece games and activities for children; North County Crafter and Vendor Show in the Big Moose Tent and Current Adirondack Moose Research Department of Environmental Conservation annual presentation.

The GAMF is also held during peak fall foliage, so visitors will enjoy the beautiful colors in the Central Adirondacks. Most festival activities are free and do not require advance registration.
