The event will feature hundreds of artisans, including renowned chefs, sommeliers, vintners, brewers, distillers and local producers.

“The stars have aligned in Saratoga Springs for the 2016 summer season! To think a visitor to Saratoga can enjoy a world-class polo match, see the world’s best thoroughbred horses, jockey’s & trainer’s compete at the oldest sporting event venue in the country and experience the NYC Ballet Gala at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary season all in one weekend is amazing.”, said Todd Garofano, President of the Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau. “Working again with AJ Bodden and the team at Townsquare, we are able to package what makes Saratoga a national treasure and reach new audiences to elevate opening weekend of the track to a whole new level.”
