Opening Celebration

Start your Americade week off right, with Americade's Opening Celebration sponsored by Rider Magazine.

Right under our Big Top Tent overlooking beautiful Lake George, you'll enjoy live music, thousands of dollars in prizes, a choice of amazing dessert or choice of beverage(beer, wine or soda), and fantastic entertainment.

Last year, the entertainer "brought the house down" with his wildly entertaining comic performance. We have an all-new act, and you'll love his combination of humor and magic.

Matthew David Stanley combines Stand-Up Comedy with Mind Blowing Magic for a result that can only be described as Entertaining. Matthew is more of a Comedian that does Magic than vice versa and is the proud recipient of the prestigious “Lance Burton Award” presented in Las Vegas, NV as well as the "International Brotherhood of Magicians Stage Champion Award" presented in Kansas City, MO. He currently tours the United States performing at Comedy Clubs, Colleges, Casinos, Theatres, and is a crowd favorite at Corporate Events across the country.

Dessert or Drink ticket holders will enjoy a terrific selection of 3 layer lemon shortcake, 3 layer strawberry shortcake, chocolate Tiger Triple Cake, 3 layer Tuxedo Truffle cake. Chocolate Flourless Torte and Fresh Fruit cups for gluten-free options or a choice of beverage(beer, wine or soda)

Rider Magazine always brings lots of great (expensive) prizes often exceeding $5,000 for many lucky winners.

Meet 'n greet new friends at this gorgeous spot. There's simply no better way to start your Ameri-Week!
