SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 2013:
SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 2013
PLEASE NOTE: Artist lineup subject to change. Programs will be available the day of the event.
Bring all the food and drink with you that you would like! Jazz Festival is a BYOB event and a great opportunity to enjoy a picnic on the SPAC lawn with friends and family. Or enjoy a Southern-style BBQ with all your classic cuisine. Lawn tickets are only $55 per person for the event!
Gates open for the festival at 12 pm, but people start lining up long before then (we're talking 6 am or earlier) to get a prime spot. If you don't want to stand in line all morning, just throw some binoculars into your bag, and you're good to go.
The big-name acts at the Saratoga Jazz Festival perform all day long on the main stage (SPAC amphitheatre), and the Gazebo usually features up and coming jazz artists, with performances trailing off in early evening.
Ticket holders can enter at either the main SPAC gate or Hall of Springs gate. Tickets cost $55 for lawn, and up to $85 for amphitheatre seating.
If you get lawn tickets, we recommend bringing blankets to sit on, packed coolers with food and drinks for the day, beach chairs, and umbrellas or tents to help you stay comfortable through the day-long festivities.
Tickets will be available for purchase online, via phone charge at 518-584-9330 and in-person at SPAC's Box Office in March 2013.
