SPAC-tacular Fiftieth Anniversary

The upcoming concert season at Saratoga Performing Arts Center is upon us!  The Dixie Chicks opened up the season last night, June 11th. SPAC is one of the best concert venues in the Capital Region, giving every guest a wonderful live music experience. Located in the middle of the beautiful Saratoga State Park,  SPAC is truly breathtaking. SPAC is celebrating its fiftieth year of operation this year. The venue doesn’t discriminate againSPAC 2016 Fiftieth Anniversary Seasonst any kind of music and has something for everyone.  Whether you’re into country, rap, jazz, alternative, rap, classical, or ballet,  SPAC has it.

Mumford and Sons, a sold out show, will be playing June 15th. Dead and Company is coming on June 21st for all you dead heads out there. SPAC is also known for its three days of Dave Matthews, The Jazz Festival, and its Phish weekend. Journey and the Doobie Brothers will be at SPAC this year in July as well as Disturbed and the dance company of Alvin and Ailey. for more details check out


SPAC is truly a concert venue gem and is a wonderful place to relax, have fun, and enjoy the arts. Lawn tickets are the most popular tickets and aren’t too pricey at all. Parking can be a pain so I recommend buying a VIP parking ticket which allows you closer parking, it is definitely worth it. So if you find yourself thinking of something to do give SPAC a chance, you won’t be disappointed.


The New York City Ballet comes July 21st and shouldn’t be missed. The very popular country singer Luke Bryan comes July 31st and for all the millennials like me, the much-loved alternative band Blink-182 is back together and plays at SPAC in September.


It wouldn’t truly be summer without going to SPAC to see a show. Get out there, be safe, and have fun! Happy Fiftieth SPAC!
