First time visit here for outdoor concert (Willie Nelson, Lucas Nelson, Neil Young). Grounds are beautiful. We had seats "inside" and I am glad we did. "Lawn seats" area seemed extremely crowded. There are numerous food & drink stands (the usual stadium fare) and a...More
The Saratoga performing arts center ,or SPAC, is the perfect summer arts venue. Over the warm months there is something for almost every one. Top names in rock,r&b,classical, jazz and country. Dance , classic car auctions , food and wine festivals are just some of...More

There is parking off Route 9 or 50. We have done the $10 parking from the Route 9 side and a beautiful walk to SPAC. Did the VIP parking once and was great. You are right there. Easy in and easy out. Both are good but really enjoyed the VIP especially after the show.
