Wally Lake Fest | Aug 26-28

The 7th Annual Wally Lake Fest is just a few weeks away and local residents and visitors are looking forward to celebrating the good times of summer on beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack with many activities from sailboat rides and a boat parade to an open market fair and a tour de towpath bike ride.

Wally Lake Fest takes place August 26th through the 28th. Families and friends attend the action packed event celebrating this scenic lake and all it has to offer. The festival gives people the opportunity to have a blast out on the water and on dry land. It’s also an ideal way to spend the last summer weekend together before back to school and the Labor Day holiday.

With many events offered at different locations, festival-goers may wonder how they can easily make it from one to the next without concerning themselves with searching for parking spots at each place. While a variety of activities are within walking distance of each other, there are some that require a short drive.


Wally Lake Fest is proudly hosted by the Downtown Hawley Partnership and presented by Lighthouse Harbor Marina.

For more information, pick up a Wally Lake Fest brochure available at the Lake Wallenpaupack Visitors Center and other area businesses. The brochure lists the complete schedule of events for the entire weekend. Additional details and daily updates are posted on the Facebook page and on the Wally Lake Fest website
