Lake George and Bolton Landing New York Area Events and Activities
Bolton Landing New York and the immediate Adirondack and Lake George regions offer a vast array of activities throughout the year. Outdoor concerts are fun for the whole family as you listen to the various music styles under the Adirondack stars. Theater and Lecture series appeal to our more mature visitors, and our festivals and fairs keep us all young at heart! Bolton Landing New York and the Lake George region of the Adirondacks has it all!

A Poetry Workshop with Susan Jefts
July 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Come hear haiku, tanka, and other nature poetry as we wander through Rogers Memorial Park, filling our senses with the images, scents, and sounds of the gardens, trees, and water.
We’ll share our impressions and try to capture a sense of mono-no-a-wabi, which loosely translates into “ahness.”
Back at the library we’ll use prompts from poems and images from the park to create our own short form poems.
Some calligraphy pens/brushes will be provided for those wishing to add a little flair to their words on cardstock.
Susan Jefts, M.S. and published poet.
Her poetry book, Breathing Lessons, is forthcoming from Shanti Arts Press this summer.
