Visit the Freihofer’s Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs, June 26 – 27! If you love good jazz music and having fun, you don’t want to miss this festival. It’s the most popular jazz festival in the area and one of the most anticipated events in Saratoga each summer!

Freihofer’s Jazz Festival is held at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in the Saratoga Spa State Park each year the last weekend in June (get directions to SPAC).

Gates open for the festival at 10 am, but people start lining up long before then (we’re talking 6 am or earlier) to get a prime spot. If you don’t want to stand in line all morning, just throw some binoculars into your bag, and you’re good to go. Big-name acts at the Saratoga Jazz Festival perform all day long on the main stage (SPAC amphitheatre), and the Gazebo usually features up and coming jazz artists, with performances trailing off in early evening.

Ticketholders can enter at either the main SPAC gate or Hall of Springs gate. Tickets will be available for purchase in May. We recommend bringing food, coolers, beach chairs, umbrellas, tents and screenrooms to help you stay comfortable through the day-long festivities.
