SARATOGA SPRINGS — Art in its many forms will be on display and packed into a new three-day festival this summer.
The first SaratogaArtsFest will be held June 15-17, organizers announced Wednesday. The event features performances and exhibits by several dozen artists at venues throughout the city, festival coordinator Marie Glotzbach said.
The idea of an arts festival had been in the works for six years, Glotzbach said, and Skidmore College helped make the idea a reality. Marie Glotzbach is the wife of college President Philip Glotzbach.
