2015 Travers Festival in Saratoga Springs

Saratoga Springs Celebrates Travers With Weeklong Festivities

Travers Day is when the legendary $1.25 M Travers Stakes runs at Saratoga Race Course, traditionally on the last Saturday in August, dating back to 1864. For many, this historic and popular "Mid-Summer Derby" is the most anticipated event of the summer racing meet, and the entire city celebrates with a weeklong prelude festival of music, racing events, parties, restaurant week and other special events, dubbed the Travers Festival!

(Note: The purse for the Travers will rise to $1.6 million from $1.25 million if Triple Crown winner and expected starter American Pharoah runs.)

  • Travers Day is on Saturday, August 29, 2015
  • The Travers Festival runs Sun, Aug 23 - Sun, Aug 30, 2015
