Bands and Beans 2020

March 29 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

“One of the region’s most anticipated parties is set again for its 29th year!”
Fort William Henry Conference Center, Lake George, NY
All the Chili you can eat!
Tickets: $20 limited early-bird (scroll to page bottom), or $25 at the door.

Hot chili and hot music will be celebrated at the 29th annual Bands ‘n Beans event to be held at Fort William Henry Conference Center in Lake George on Sunday, March 29, from 2 – 7 PM. For almost three decades now, Bands ‘n Beans has become the biggest party of the year in the north country, a sign of winter’s end and the beginning of spring.

This year more than twenty-five area restaurants will serve up their best chili in a friendly, but hotly contested competition. All of the several hundreds of attendees will be able to vote for their favorite chili.

In addition, there will be continuous live music on two separate stages. This year’s lineup of musicians includes Rich Ortiz & friends, The Switch, Stony Creek Band, Dirt Cheap, The Blonde Roots Band, PJ Duo, Mirabile & Jacobs, Rick Bolton & Jackie Dugas, Steve & Kenny, and Tim Wechgelaer & Chris Carey.

Other offerings include award winning breads from Rock Hill Bakehouse, a large silent auction and raffle with fantastic items from local merchants.

Proceeds from Bands ‘n Beans benefit the Lake George Arts Project, so they can continue to offer quality arts and music programming, usually at no, or little cost to the public.
