Showcasing local wines, beers, food, artisan crafts, and music, the festival is proving that nobody does it better than Upstate NY! 

The festival features two fun-filled events on Friday, April 18th and Saturday, April 19th.

Saratoga Springs oozes elegance and charm; from its unique boutiques that line the streets to the delicious cuisine that can be found on any corner, Saratoga is definitely the place to be. This Spring, Saratoga will welcome a new hotel that will further enhance this town's beauty and prestige: The Pavilion Grand. The new hotel will be opening in the upcoming months and promises to be all you could hope for (and more).

Yeah, I know what you're thinking: it doesn't look like spring! Well, you're right...it sure doesn't. For those of you out-of-towners, here's a shot of the ironic first day of spring in Saratoga Springs:

Forget spring; summer is in the air! Okay, so there might be piles of snow outside, but today we start the countdown to summer!

100 days til summer

To kick off our 100 days 'til summer countdown, we have come up with 100 things we're looking forward to about summer in Saratoga:

Hey, Skidmore students: if you didn't fly out to the Bahamas this spring break, chances are you're chilling in your Northwoods or New Scrib apartment, trying to "study" and "get a head start on your thesis," but we've got some distractions for you that aren't Netflix. Stop wondering what food your roommate won't notice if you eat and check out these spring break ideas to have a staycation in Saratoga.


Dr. Seuss lives on in the homes and hearts of families every day, but especially on his birthday week, we love to celebrate all things Seuss! March 2nd is when Theodor Seuss Geisel was born, and if he were still living today, he'd be 110 years old!

To commemorate his special day, many local libraries and bookstores held special Seuss events this past weekend. But here at Saratoga.com, we are remembering Seuss by giving his well-known classic "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" a Saratoga twist!


Yes, it will be 45 degrees out on Saturday (yippie!) but looking ahead, we're going to get another set of icy days with temperatures dipping below the double digits. We don't want to crush your hope for spring, but we do want to help you get through this last stretch of winter

If you're anything like us, you've probably exhausted Netflix, given up on The Walking Dead, and are considering returning to that old-fashioned hobby called reading - at least until March Madness starts.

Check out Northshire Bookstore's recommendations for the best books to read in the bathtub. Why? This Sunday, February 9th, is Read in the Bathtub Day! 

For those of you who don't have this obscure holiday on your calendars, the friendly folks at Northshire Bookstore helped us pick out the best books to read in the bathtub. Read up on their favorite picks, then head downtown to get a copy for yourself - and don't forget the bubble bath mix!

We've been hyping up Saratoga Chowderfest for weeks, maybe months. Now it's time for us to SHOW you how great it is. Check out all the crazy and classic Chowderfest moments we captured this year, plus our choices for this year's winners!

Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year) celebrations have begun to commemorate the beginning of the Year of the Horse. Although in Saratoga Springs, it seems like every year is the "year of the horse" this year's lunar zodiac symbol is cause for extra celebration in 2014!
