The weekend many of us have been looking forward to all year is almost here! The Freihofer’s Jazz Festival will take place this weekend at SPAC rain or shine to celebrate the 36th anniversary. Let’s hope for shine.
This is by far one of the most anticipated events of the season for many.
People come from near and far to picnic with friends and family, shop at the amazing craft tent, sample great food and of course, hear some great live music.
Throughout the years many legendary musicians have graced the stage at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center during jazz festival weekend.
This year the tradition continues as Saratoga welcomes the legendary Buddy Guy, Tony Bennett, David Sanborn and many more amazing performers!
One great thing about this festival is that you can bring what you are willing to carry in and out and set up camp for the day. The atmosphere is like a huge family BBQ with great live music!
There are some who have elaborate setups with screened tents and chafing dishes to set up their buffets. Others go with a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the food and drinks available there.
You can even shop while you rock. The craft tent is huge and there are vendors including painters, sculptors, food artisans, clothing designers and more!
It’s truly a must do if you’re in the Saratoga area. I can’t wait! Fingers crossed for sunshine, but the show will go on in any case. I’m ready!
If you don’t have plans for the weekend, the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival is something you may want to put on your radar. It is a great time for people of all ages!
Come out and get your groove on. You won’t be disappointed!
