Saratoga Performing Arts Center - Saratoga Springs, NY

A large amphitheater built through the love and effort of the entire Saratoga Springs community, Saratoga Preforming Arts Center boasts a breathtaking setting amidst the lush forests, geysers, and mineral springs of the Spa State Park. Often referred to as the “SPAC,” the venue hosts live concerts, classical events, and festivals.

SPAC is shaped like a curved bowl and rises 100 feet high with a total capacity of 25,200. Its stage was designed to accommodate a full symphony orchestra, and the stage floor was especially engineered for the New York City Ballet. It is the official summer home of the Ballet as well as the Philadelphia Orchestra. Every summer, the venue features the Freihofer Jazz Festival, where major and up-and-coming jazz artists are presented. Its natural sloping lawn also makes it easier for guests to get a good view of performances in the pavilion while enjoying a picnic.

The venue is accessible by bus, shuttle, cab, or private car. All shows go on rain or shine, so be prepared with rain gear or an umbrella. Gates open an hour and a half before the show and guests may bring in a backpack, binoculars, a small digital camera, soft coolers, food in a clear plastic bag, one factory-sealed water bottle up to 1 gallon per person, and a lawn chair under 24 inches tall.

Enjoy an ultimate music experience under the starry skies at the Saratoga Preforming Arts Center. Event Tickets Center offers a wide selection of Saratoga Performing Arts Center tickets to choose from.
