The Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival will celebrate its 41st anniversary on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24, 2018. Founded in 1978 by jazz impresario George Wein, Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival is the fifth longest-consecutive-running jazz festival in North America. Initially founded as “the Newport Jazz Festival at Saratoga” the festival was renamed Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival in 1998.  The two-day, two-stage festival continues to be one of the largest jazz music events in North America, beloved by audiences for both the remarkable annual line-up of international jazz talent and the spectacular setting at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in the idyllic Saratoga Spa State Park.
