The Saratoga Wine and Food Festival
The Saratoga Performing Arts Center has wrapped up another summer of concerts, but there’s still one more big event on the calendar this weekend before SPAC closes the gates on the 2014 season.

The Saratoga Wine & Food Festival takes over the SPAC grounds this weekend for three days of dining and drinking.

Post continues below...

Chef Marc Murphy (of the Food Network show “Chopped”) will be the host and judge at the BBQ, Blues & Brews event from 7-10pm Friday (September 5), which features a “competition-style grill off in which the Capital Region’s top chefs face off against Manhattan Grill masters.” In addition, Friday’s event will feature a variety of craft beers, wines and spirits, as well as music by acclaimed jazz bassist Ben Williams and his band Sound Effect. Tickets are $85.

The festival’s main event takes place from 1-4pm Saturday. The Grand Tasting features “unparalleled wines, spirits and authentic products” from Nippertown’s top restaurants, as well as world-class seminars including Master Wine Connoisseur, Kevin Zraly’s World-exploration Wine Seminar, a Connoisseur Tent and an expanded Culinary Tent with innovative demonstrations. Music by the Hot Club of Saratoga. Tickets are $85

The fest wraps up on Sunday with the In the Groove Jazz Brunch at 11:30am at the Saratoga National Golf Course’s Prime Restaurant, boasting an exciting selection of classic brunch cocktails along with stations from six of Angelo Mazzone’s finest restaurants. Tickets are $75.
