Can you believe the 175th anniversary of the annual Saratoga County Fair is only a month away? To celebrate this accomplishment and the long-lasting impact the fair has had on the local community, Ballston Spa Mayor John Romano has officially proclaimed July 2016 "Saratoga County Fair Month!"


Both houses of the New York State Legislature have adopted a resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC). The resolution recognizes SPAC's remarkable five-decade history, as well as the role New York State played in founding the venue in the 1960s.

The emerald ash borer (EAB) has been confirmed for the first time in Saratoga County in the towns of Waterford and Ballston Lake. 

This invasive insect destroys ash trees and has already killed 50 million trees since it arrived in the states from Asia in the mid-1990s. More than 900 million ash trees in the state are at risk.

The DEC needs your help to combat the catastrophic consequences of this insect's presence in our region.

The Saratoga Music Hall - currently used for events like dances and children's theater - could be converted into a courtroom and council chambers as early as next year.

Thanks to local arts groups, a movement is currently underway to save the Music Hall.

The next time you feel like relaxing on one of Saratoga Springs' sidewalks, think again! In a recent vote, Saratoga Springs approved of a ban against sitting and lying on any sidewalk in the city.

Thanks to the Timber Framers Guild, an important visitors center will be constructed in Schuylerville during August and September of this year.
