January 28 - 31, 2021
The 2021 Empire State Winter Games is a multi-day sports event hosted in New York's Adirondacks from January 28 - 31. In its 41st year, the Games will bring together athletes from across New York state and beyond — including 15 states and three countries — to compete in over 30 winter sports events. The 2020 Games included more than 2,100 athletes of all ages, including master divisions, and the 2021 Games are expected to exceed that number.
Registration will be open for the 2021 Games soon!
