Although there's no racing at the Saratoga Race Course on Dark Tuesdays, you can always find things to do in Saratoga Springs. On August 9, 16, and 23 - three Dark Tuesdays in August 2016 - there will be free lunchtime concerts at Saratoga Battlefield to brighten up your day!

Caffe Lena, America's long-running coffeehouse, will be undergoing major renovations from June 10 through August 27. Instead of shutting down for the summer season, Caffe Lena will feature a full schedule of concerts at a temporary venue in downtown Saratoga Springs!

The 39th annual Freihofer's Saratoga Jazz Festival is nearly here, but due to unfortunate circumstances, Chaka Khan will not be able to headline the festival. In her place, one of the most influential and renowned R&B groups, the Isley Brothers, will perform at SPAC for the first time on June 25!

Every summer, the Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College hosts a free concert series on the roof of the museum, appropriately titled "UpBeat on the Roof."
