Just when things had calmed down with the end of the thoroughbred racing season, Saratoga Springs is gearing up for another big event -- the 16th annual Saratoga Wine & Food Festival and Concours D’Elegance, set for this Friday through Sunday at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC).
The gala event, a fundraiser for SPAC's Children's Education Program, combines local chefs' handiwork and cooking demonstrations with domestic and imported wines, and a classic auto show. Among the headliners will be Food Network personalities Anne Burrell and Marc Murphy, Spike TV’s Josh Capon, and top sommelier Joshua Wesson.
As a companion event, the Saratoga Automobile Museum will present a show of luxury collector cars including classes of Shelby Cobra, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Lancia, Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and more.
All the details, schedule and ticketing information are available on the event website.
SPAC and the auto museum are located just off Broadway (Route 9) in the Saratoga Spa State Park.
