Welcome to WNYT's SPAC Weather Forecast

If you've purchased a classical lawn ticket at Saratoga Performing Arts Center -- and rain is forecasted during the performance, you'll be upgraded to amphitheater balcony seating for FREE -- compliments of Price Chopper/Market 32.

Simply check this weather posting each day and call the SPAC weather hotline at 518-584-9330 ext. 437: after 4PM for an 8PM evening performance -- or noon for a 2PM matinee below -- to see if you'll be upgraded.

New York City Ballet & The Philadelphia Orchestra lawn ticket holders will be upgraded at no additional charge to seats in the rear balcony subject to availability on a first come, first served basis*. Enter the venue with your lawn tickets, then proceed to the outer balcony (ramps 1 or 4) where an usher will exchange your lawn tickets for your upgraded balcony seats. It's that easy!
