I have been to a couple of concerts there. Ample parking, great venues. The concerts are always great, and there is plenty of room to walk around. The music sounds great here, and you can get food and drinks.

For a long time, Saratoga was famous for the horse races and "the waters." The horse are still there in August. So are the waters, but fewer people "take them." SPAC has made Saratoga a major summertime cultural destination. Since it opened in the 1960s...More

Outdoor facility with a pavilion. On a beautiful day, it’s a great spot to spend time. The perimeter area has cool buildings around the lawn areas.

I don't know what people are thinking when they call this a great venue. From our experiences, it's the worst amphitheater I've ever been to (out of many). Sound: You will not hear well if anywhere but in DECENT SEATS. If you're on the lawn,...More

I love that this venue is either part of or right near the state park, which makes me feel close to nature while enjoying a show. If you're lucky enough to get a ticket for the small pavilion area, you're golden. It feels like an...More

The Philadelphia Orchestra performed at SPAC during a 3-week period in August. We attended a concert each of the weeks. At 2 of the concerts, the smell of cigarette smoke filled the amphitheater. This is just plain disgusting…. It is a good thing that the...More

I'm not 100% sure but I think the acts hire their own vendors. So it all depends on who is playing there and who they choose to provide food/drinks. When I was there for the Phish shows in 2016, I didn't find the prices as... More
