Due to health and safety guidelines mandated by New York State, pre-show events like Family Nights and American Girl Night cannot be offered during the summer 2021 season. We look forward to bringing these events back to SPAC in summer 2022.


On these special evenings, come to SPAC when gates open at 6pm and experience a night of world-class entertainment for the whole family!

  • Balloon artists
  • Photo booths
  • Traveling exhibits and activities from Capital Region museums 
  • drumming circle
  • An Instrument Petting Zoo
  • And Children’s Workshops on the lawn with professional dancers and musicians 

Family Night activities are free to all ticketholders for that evening’s performance. 

We look forward to seeing you there! 


Every summer, for one night only, experience the excitement of American Girl Place at SPAC! Set under a massive tent on the SPAC grounds, families can participate in photo booths, crafts, games, free lemonade and cookies – all themed around the American Girl Place Girl of the Year.
