SARATOGA BATTLEFIELD’S 21st ANNUAL FROST FAIRE
Snow or no snow, come enjoy the 21st annual Frost Faire on Saturday, January 23th, from 11 AM to 3 PM at Saratoga National Historical Park (the Battlefield) located on Routes 4 and 32 in Stillwater. All activities are free and all take place in and around the Visitor Center this year (no organized activities at Tour Road Stop 1).
Inspired by Frost Faires in 1700s England (during the mini-ice age), this is an event that offers a wide variety of activities such as tubing down the Visitor Center hill (snow permitting), horse-drawn carriage rides, on-going children’s crafts and games, contra-dancing for young and old, cannon and musket firings as part of a small Revolutionary War winter encampment, a bonfire and warm up hut with hot cocoa, and a 12 PM nature and scavenger hunt led by an Adirondack Guide.
This event is sponsored by the Town of Stillwater and Friends of Saratoga Battlefield.
