The Saratoga Arts Celebration at the National Museum of Dance, is a premier Arts Festival, taking place on Saturday and Sunday, August 22 and 23, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The 7th Annual Saratoga Arts Celebration is a juried fine arts and fine crafts festival of visual and performing arts taking place, rain or shine, inside and under tents. The event is held at the National Museum of Dance in the Historic Saratoga Spa State Park, 99 S. Broadway. The show is held on the great lawn as well as inside the Dance Museum and is timed with start of Travers Festival week in Saratoga Springs. The backdrop of the lovely architecture, beautiful exhibits and gardens compliment the original works of art. The New York State Park grounds never look more elegant than in August. “This is also a wonderful opportunity for people to visit the National Museum of Dance, The Saratoga Automobile Museum’s British car show next door and this also coincides with the Saturday performance of the Philadelphia Orchestra at SPAC.”

Their paintings, photography, drawings, prints, sculptures, mixed media, jewelry, ceramics, fiber, metal and glass pieces are all original works of art and are available for collecting in every price range.
