Open Sky FAQ

Location & Parking

Open Sky is on the Lawn @ LPCA (Lake Placid Center for the Arts), 17 Algonquin Rd, Lake Placid, NY 12946. You'll be directed to festival parking when you arrive.

Weather Policy

In the case of an extreme weather forecast that would prohibit a performance from going forward outdoors, ticketholders will be notified by email of any adjustments to the location or schedule.

COVID Safety

All Open Sky events are open to all and proof of vaccine and/or negative COVID-19 test are not required. Masks are optional at all Open Sky events - we invite you to do what makes you feel most comfortable. There will be a socially-distanced section of the grounds for audience members who wish to enjoy performances with social-distancing rules in effect if they choose. This section will be first-come, first-serve; no advance reservations are necessary.


The Lawn @ LPCA is a wide grassy field and we recommend bringing along your own folding chairs, blankets, etc. to make yourself comfortable. Re-entry will be permitted for ticketholders who may need to exit the festival grounds for a smoke break or a trip back to their car, etc.

Food & Drink

Al Forno Ferruzza food truck will be on site with pizza, beer and wine! The LPCA is also right next door to several restaurants that offer eat-in and take out dining. Feel free to bring a picnic from home or from one of our neighboring restaurants, but please, no outside alcohol.


Smoking is permitted within designated areas on the LPCA campus.


Please leave pets at home (with the exception of working/service animals).
