empire state TRIBUTE FESTIVAL

Turning Stone Resort & Casino

Verona, NY

June 2-5, 2022

PASSES WILL GO ON SALE TO THE PUBLIC JULY 27 AT 10 AM (EST).

 
 

We are happy to announce that the first annual “Empire State Tribute Festival,” will take place on our traditional Lake George festival weekend, June 2-5, 2022 at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY. The Las Vegas-style Turning Stone Showroom will host our big concerts, the resort’s many bars and restaurants will host our receptions and after hours events, and the festival will still include one of the largest ETA contests in the world. Turning Stone will be offering a great range of room rates, in a wide variety of rooms from $79-$299 per night (reservations may be made starting April 10, see the Hotel page for more information).

While the casino will be a vastly different environment than Lake George, we feel that Turning Stone’s central location will enable all of the fans to join us. The resort is only 35 miles from Syracuse Airport which is accessible via Uber and Lyft, making it more convenient for those traveling long distances (no car rental needed). For those driving, Turning Stone Resort Casino is:

  • 35 minutes from Syracuse
  • 1.5 hours from Albany
  • 2 hours from Glens Falls
  • 3 hours from Buffalo
  • 4 hours from New York City, Boston and Philadelphia
  • 5 hours from Montreal and Toronto

While we do not have the complete schedule outlined yet, we have already contracted with some of your favorite tribute artists to appear…
