We all know what a phenomenal jazz city Saratoga is – from Freihofers “Live at the the Jazz Bar” to Skidmore Jazz Institute to all the venues around the city– including One Caroline, 9 Maple, Spring Street Gallery, Caffe Lena, Inn at Saratoga – that already represent the best in Jazz – featuring both national acts as well as the incredibly rich and talented community of jazz artists in Saratoga and the Capital Region.
The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Saratoga Performing Arts Center, introduce Freihofer’s Jazz Fest Friday 2018! - a community event, to be held on June 22, that will kick off the traditional SPAC Jazz Fest weekend June 23-24.
Freihofer’s Jazz Fest Friday will feature Chamber businesses welcoming locals and visitors with scores of live jazz events, themed dining, and social dance options that will be the "warm-up" leading up to the main weekend Festival at SPAC…Saratoga Springs will come alive with live jazz at venues across the City –from Beekman Street to Broadway to Saratoga Lake.
We invite all Chamber members to book performers to play live jazz throughout the evening at your venues. Feel free to offer themed menus, cocktails and other "Jazz" to take advantage of this promotional opportunity. Be Creative! The Chamber and SPAC/Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival will publicize and promote the event. All interested members should sign up with the Chamber to participate by Tuesday, May 1 .
Each year, SPAC's Jazz Fest hosts thousands of attendees for 2 days. This is our chance to introduce them to one of the finest "Jazz Cities" in the world!
