It's that time of year! Rumored dates are 7/14+7/15.

I believe track season opens that weekend? I'm sure the locals will correct me on that one.

See you at SPAC!

Re: *** Offical SPAC 2023 Thread ***

Thinking of going this year for the first time. Where is the best place to stay? I prefer a nicer place/location than going for cheapest place to stay.

Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks!

We went for the first time last year, if you don't care about price and don't want to drive post show stay at the Gideon Putnam. 5 minute walk back after the shows and overall nice place (historic nice). We stayed at the Embassy for the pre show nights to be close to the action on Broadway but Gideon has a shuttle.

was really hoping it was 7.7 and 7.8 as we had a killer house and everyone could make it. current rumored week means a small place and half my crew canít make it

Credible additional source also now indicating July 14&15 !
It’s going to be a crazy weekend in Saratoga with track opening!

How do the races work? Can we just get a cheap general admission pass for an afternoon pre show?
