If you remember last week, we wrote about SaratogaArtsFest and all of the fun, art-centered events taking place throughout this upcoming weekend in downtown Saratoga. However, this will be the last run for this beloved and popular annual event. After eight years, SaratogaArtsFest is taking its event in a new direction that will debut this fall!
Instead of one large annual event, SaratogaArtsFest will be implementing monthly ArtsFest Fridays, similar to Troy Night Out and Albany’s First Friday. Dee Sarno, chair of the board of the festival told the Troy Record, “It’s been an amazing event for many years. But we have great events in Saratoga all-year round, and we at SaratogaArtsFest want to support what’s going on and help promote them all year round. The direction we’re going in will work better for us and the local organizations in the arts.”
