If you live in or near Saratoga Springs long enough, you’ll inevitably become a foodie (it’s certainly happened to me). Nearly every weekend, there seems to be a new restaurant opening or festival or county fair, where you can taste delicious, fresh-made, locally sourced foods, and this weekend is no exception. This Saturday, October 6, the Spa City is playing host to the Pig N’ Whistle (Irish cuisine) and Saratoga’s Broadway Deli.

The Saratoga International Flavorfeast also has a wonderful lineup of performers to keep you entertained while you’re busy enjoying Flavorville. Groups that will be performing include Adam Witt’s African Drumming, the Asian Culture Chinese Dance Troupe, a German accordion band and Skidmore College’s Raíces Latin Dance Team, among others. If you’re not too stuffed—and have more time on your hands—check out these other great options for fun in the Capital Region.
