Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) Lighting and Circulation Renovations

Saratoga Spa State Park, NYS OPRHP, Saratoga Springs, NY

The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) is an internationally renowned concert venue; voted the 2016 Best Outdoor Music Venue by USA Today. Its magnificent amphitheater accommodates more than 6,000 under the shed roof and another 21,000 patrons outdoors on the expansive sloped lawn. Visitors enjoy SPAC’s unique location nestled under the pines in the beautiful Saratoga Spa State Park. Its renowned acoustics have provided an unforgettable experience for audiences and performers alike since its construction in 1966.

In 2019, the ramps were renovated to provide additional lighting, light pole replacement, new glass railings, and ramp recoating to provide slip resistance. Upon completion, the new railings provide a greater fall protection as well as a cleaner appearance compared to the original railings. The additional ramp lighting allows for the light poles to be dimmed during performances while still allowing the accent lighting to keep the ramp well lit without creating distractions.
