July Means Saratoga Racetrack & Saratoga Events!
Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC)
Of course, many of the Saratoga events in July are all about thoroughbred horse racing at Saratoga
! From the end of July through the first weekend of September each year, some of the finest thoroughbreds in the world
compete here! Typically there is an annual Open House where you can preview the track, enjoy some great food, entertainment, exhibits and backstretch tours. While in Saratoga, breakfast at the track
is a tradition…a leisurely buffet on the Clubhouse Porch while the horses get ready to run. (You can even take a free walking tour of the stable area, weather permitting!) The track is closed on Tuesdays.
Sit back and enjoy one of the best performances on earth
! Another wonderful Saratoga tradition, the renowned New York City Ballet
makes its home here for three weeks in July, offering unforgettable performances daily at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center
. These are unique Saratoga events
the whole family can enjoy!
For the last 100 years, Saratoga Polo Association has been delighting visitors with this unique and beloved ‘sport of kings’. If you’ve never had the opportunity to be a spectator, you’re in for a treat! The speed and skill of this sport is surprising, as is the elegant setting of the Saratoga Polo Club. Continues from mid-June through the part of September with matches every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday Evening at 5:30 p.m.
