“Great Concert Venue”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Recently went here to see Jason Mraz. First time at this venue and i was beyond impressed. Staff was outstanding and very helpful but more importantly, very friendly. Acoustics were phenomenal. The parking was slightly troublesome but no more so than any other major concert venue i have been to. The only real negative i can come up with is the signage in town to direct you to the venue was sporadic.

“Loved this Venue!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

We went here to see Jason Mraz and loved this venue!! Beautiful grounds! I had a premier parking pass which was well worth it!! Got there early and had no problems with parking. Staff was helpful and friendly. The price of the alcohol was ridiculous!! We had front row seats so absolutely no negatives there. Wished Rochester had a venue like SPAC. I'll be back for sure!!

My wife and I went to the Jason Marz concert on Sunday night (9/2/12) and it was a blast. It was the 1st time we had every been to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and we couldn't believe all the people sitting in the grass with there blankets and portable chairs. Fortunately we had reserved seats in advance and sat in Section #9 half way down toward the stage in the middle which was fine for us. The show was excellent as he has a great voice and the younger crowd loved him. My wife and I didn't know what to expect as we weren't familiar with his music but it was very enjoyable and it was a beautiful night. The only fustrating thing was the traffic in an out of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. But someone in the Highway Division will have to figure that out in the future. Sincerely, Mr.& Mrs. "A"

“A summer venue not to be missed”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This place is in a gorgeous setting. It is easy to get to and to park. From the classical Philadelphia Orchestra, the NYC Ballet, the Allman Brothers the Doobie Brothers and the Beach Boys, this place has enough bathrooms to make any older lady enjoy a day out at SPAC.
