We receive a large number of requests and unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate all of them. Please send your request to email@example.com and indicate the event name, date/time, location, and purpose of the event. If approved, you will receive a voucher form for complimentary tickets to either the New York City Ballet, or Philadelphia Orchestra (NO Live Nation Concerts).
Please see our Grounds Rules for this information.
Live Nation Concerts:
Gate & parking times vary – see individual event listing for specific information. Parking in all lots is subject to a $10 fee per car. Parking in the Route 50 lot entrances can be paid via credit or debit card. There is additional $10 parking available throughout the Saratoga Spa State Park.
For Jazz Festival & Classical Performances:
The main parking lot is located off Route 50 and is open from dawn to the end of the event.
Gates open 2 hours before show time.
There is additional parking available in the Saratoga Spa State Park.
Tickets are available in-person at the SPAC Box Office during the season (Late May – September), or online at livenation.com. Tickets are not sold via phone.
As of January 1, 2024, we do not have any events with entry requirements.
No. You cannot leave your vehicle in the parking lot overnight. It will be towed at the owners expense.
The “Will Call” window is located off of the Route 50 parking lot at the Main Box Office ONLY. We suggest you arrive at Will Call 1-2 hours prior to the show to avoid long lines. Please bring the original credit card used to purchase the tickets and a valid photo ID.
Every ticket is assigned a section/row/seat for tracking purposes within our system. For general admission tickets, there is not an assigned row or seat (i.e. LAWN1, LAWN2, GA1, GA2) is just used to track tickets.
Saratoga Performing Arts Center cautions against guests buying tickets from non-accredited ticket sources. Many guests that have purchased tickets from brokers or scalpers find themselves in possession of counterfeit tickets at inflated prices. This is especially true on sold out shows. A counterfeit ticket will not gain access to the concert event.
That is the Orchestra Pit area in front of the stage.
If your ticket says GAPIT for the section and has a row of GA0, GA1, GA2, etc. then the pit is general admission standing room only. If it says section 40 and has row letters A-F then there will be assigned seats.
All shows will go on rain or shine. No refunds will be given in the event of rain. For classical events, please check with the box office to upgrade your lawn ticket. For Live Nation pop/rock/country concerts, upgrades may be available on the day of the show (after you arrive inside the venue).
You may bring umbrellas that do NOT have pointed ends.
Saratoga Performing Arts Center offers a wide variety of food and drink options.
Children two (2) and under are free for all events. If you are seated in the amphitheater, they must sit on your lap, or you must purchase a ticket if they require a seat.
There is a team of Emergency Medical Technicians who are available to assist guests with special medical needs. If someone has a medical condition that requires syringes or special medical attention, they should alert the SPAC staff on arrival who will notify the SPAC medical team to discuss your needs.
The LED screens are a wonderful addition to the lawn concert experience. However, sometimes artists ask that these screens not be used for a specific event. While not common, it does happen from time to time. The screens are not used for pavilion only shows.
