2016 Community Events

Williams lake Classic Youth Races

Participants of the 2015 Williams Lake Classic Youth Races with Project Manager Tim Allred

The Williams Lake Project honors the legacy of the former Williams Lake Hotel as a special place that created lasting memories for residents of Ulster County. We continue this legacy as an active member of the vibrant Rosendale Community, and are proud of our many local partnerships.

Since 2007, we have hosted dozens of public recreational events, races, educational and research programs, while raising over $50,000 for local charities.


For information on holding events at Williams Lake in 2017,
please email Jimmy Martin, Communication & Events Coordinator.

Event schedule is subject to change. Events are open to the public unless noted otherwise. Visit host organization websites for details.
