The Grounds

The SPAC grounds cover over 16 acres of land once you enter the venue.  All locations throughout the grounds can be accessed via asphalt sidewalks.  The second floor of The Pines (I.e., The Nancy DiCresce Room and Live Nation’s VIP Club) can be accessed via an elevator in the first-floor lobby. 

There is a wheelchair ramp allowing easier access into the amphitheater located on the north side of the venue behind the Hall of Springs Gate.  All reserved seats on the lower level (sections 1-14) can be accessed without using stairs.  Although the balcony can be accessed via balcony ramps, only the accessible reserved seats behind sections 16-17 can be accessed without using stairs.  All other sections of the balcony require the use of stairs.

Courtesy Carts

At SPAC events, we provide a limited number of courtesy carts to help guests move around the grounds and closer to their seats.  These carts are available at most events including Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival, New York City Ballet and The Philadelphia Orchestra. 

These 6-seat carts are intended to transport only those patrons’ needing assistance and one companion each.  The carts are unable to drive into parking lots. Guests may be dropped off at the Route 50 Gate near the Sun Dial or Hall of Springs Gate where venue staff will further assist them.

For Live Nation Concerts, please go to the Route 50 Guest Services tent to request a cart ride for you and one companion. This drops off AND picks up at the top of the Accessibility Ramp inside the venue. Cart rides only go as far as the Sundial to drop a guest back off.

Courtesy Cart service is made possible in part by the generous support of Bouchey Financial Group

Assisted Listening Devices

For SPAC events, the venue offers a limited number of Assisted Listening Devices (ALD) for guests who are hearing impaired. SPAC’s system is an ultra-high frequency, in-ear personal monitoring system. An induction neckloop for t-switch hearing aids or earbuds are available depending on need.

Reservations will be honored on a first come-first served basis and a drivers’ license will be held by the venue as collateral while the device is being used. Guests may pick up their ALD at Guest Services prior to the performance.
