Wild In The Trees is our two day music and skateboarding festival that takes place annually on the grounds of the Lake George Skate Plaza in Lake George, NY. The skate plaza is located right in Charles R Wood Park in Lake George, NY. The first ever Wild in the Trees Music and Skate Festival took place October 1-2, 2022 hosting acts including Annie in the Water, Neon Avenue and Glass Pony just to name a few and also included five different skateboarding events. On the grounds of the festival you can find some of the areas best food and craft beer along with over 20 craft vendors located at the space.
Wild in the Trees is our way in paying homage to all efforts made to raise money to build the Lake George Skate Plaza while embracing all the incredible musical talent regionally and beyond. Back in 2008, local skateboarders in Lake George, NY brought to the towns attention about the need to have a skate park. Through various town board meetings and the creation of a skateboarding committee put together by skaters, family members and community leaders, it was time to raise money to make the dream come true.
Throughout the early 2010’s, local skateboarders held various fundraisers over the years including spaghetti dinners, coin drops, benefit concerts and much more. Between all the efforts locally along with a few grants, the skateboarders were able to raise nearly $100,000. By 2014, the park was designed with oversight from the local skaters. In 2015, ground was broken at the newly created Charles R. Wood Park and the dream was realized. The Lake George Skate Plaza attracts skateboarders from all across the northeast and beyond each year giving kids a safe place to skateboard without getting in trouble.
