Summer Fest ’17

Summer Fest ‘17 takes over Lake Champlain

July 29-30 Pro bass fishing and jet skiing events combine at Plattsburgh City Beach for double the summer fun

Continually listed among Bassmaster Magazine’s top 100 bass fishing lakes in the United States, Lake Champlain has welcomed dozens of professional bass fishing tournaments to its waters and shores over the last 12 years. Now, in 2017, two exciting outdoor recreation events are coming to Lake Champlain July 29th and 30th combining to create the Adirondack Coast’s very first Summer Fest ’17!

Bassmaster Elite Series

Returning to the western shores of Lake Champlain from July 27-30 for the first time since 2010, the Bassmaster Elite Series gives top-performing anglers the opportunity to compete for $100,000 and a shot at the 2018 Geico Bassmaster Classic, along with the title of “Top Angler”!

With the Elite Series comes Bassmaster’s Outdoors Expo July 29-30 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., featuring free giveaways, local vendors, and outdoor activities for spectators and participants of all ages.

East Coast Watercross

The fun doesn’t end with the Bassmaster Elite Series and Outdoors Expo! Jet skiers will soar across Lake Champlain when East Coast Watercross hits the beach from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 29-30. Offering a variety of class levels, ages 8 and up can compete in an action-packed race around a 30-buoy course, providing entertainment and suspense for all spectators.

Event Organizer Christopher Yates commented, “We have the option to hold races in 13 states within our region and, as you can imagine, that allows for a lot of options both in lakes and on the ocean. However, most Cities simply do not have such a large public beach area to accommodate all the racers. Plattsburgh will not only be a perfect race location, but it will also be a great getaway for the hundreds of racers traveling from as far south as Florida. We are honored to help introduce these racers to the Adirondacks in the ‘real’ Upstate NY.”

Summer Fest ‘17

These two great outdoor recreation events will combine into one action-packed 2-day event. With plenty of family-friendly activities, it’s sure to be a good time for all ages!
