The mission of BarnArts is to engage the local community as both viewers and participants in a year-round performing arts program which supports the existing and developing talents of local adults and children.
The vision of BarnArts is to foster and continuously support a community that views art as essential to social well-being, a community where a thriving arts culture and a thriving rural economy are mutually supportive, where the careers of artist, teacher and farmer are equally valued, and where time is set aside for the pursuit of creativity and shared learning.
The Race Around the Lake specifically supports BarnArts Youth Programming: sponsorship and scholarships for our Summer Youth Theater, sponsorship of the BarnArts Teen Touring Company, and free programs for kids, like the BarnArts Youth Chorale.

RACE AROUND THE LAKE raises money for BarnArts youth programming, primarily our Summer Youth Theater, now in it's 8th Season. These funds allow us to keep our enrollment costs low and offer scholarships to students who need additional assistance. We also are expanding into Arts-in-Education programming and offer a free youth choir experience every fall. Our BarnArts Teen Touring Company creates original youth-focused skits to perform at area schools.
We look forward to an even better event with you again this year!
This year's RFID race-side timing will be done again by Adirondack Coast Events.
