Update:
Flurry 2022 will NOT take place over Presidents Weekend.

The combination of the current Delta wave and an expected increase in cases caused by vaccine-resistant Omicron means that even vaccination and testing/screening requirements cannot guarantee a low risk of viral transmission at the festival. We are exploring options for holding an outdoor version of the Flurry in the spring, and will post updates as they come.

New: Discover Saratoga is offering a 10% discount pass for many businesses around town, along with other specials, for Flurry attendees who keep their hotel reservations for the weekend. Find info at Discover Saratoga – Flurry Festival 2022.

A message from Discover Saratoga:
Though we will certainly miss the Flurry Festival this year, we wanted to let you know that Saratoga is open and ready to safely welcome guests. We invite you to keep your reservations and to plan a fun weekend exploring all of Saratoga’s wonderful winter experiences. Visit a museum, soak in a mineral bath, or try some outdoor winter fun, like snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The Saratoga region truly offers something for everyone! We will be sharing information just for Flurry guests that will feature special discounts around town for you to enjoy (more details to follow). In the meantime, we encourage you to visit Discover Saratoga – Things to Do for a complete listing of our region’s activities and attractions. We hope you choose to visit Saratoga this February and we look forward to hosting the Flurry in 2023!
– Darryl Leggieri, President of Discover Saratoga

❄️ What if I have hotel reservations?

The Hilton will not be cancelling your hotel reservations, so you will need to cancel them yourself. However, Presidents Weekend is an excellent time for a Saratoga vacation, and there are many other ways to enjoy the area, with special discounts on offer for Flurry visitors at Discover Saratoga – Flurry Festival 2022. If you reserved a Hilton room through the Flurry, they will honor your discounted group rate if you keep your reservation.

❄️ What’s this about a concert?

We are planning to present a live concert at Caffe Lena, on Friday evening Feb. 18, featuring some favorite Flurry performers. This concert will stream online as well for those who cannot join us in person. We’ll announce more details as we have them!

❄️ Can you say more about a spring festival? When would it be? Where? Will tickets be limited?

We promise, we’ll share more information as soon as we have it. This is a big pivot, and there are many details to be worked through. We can’t promise we’ll be able to pull this off, but we’re giving it a try.

❄️ I purchased a DFO membership to get early ticket access. Do I get anything now?

We are so grateful to all those who joined as new members this year. Your DFO membership supports not only the Flurry Festival, but also the year-round events we offer, as well as grants to support traditional dance and music out in our community and bring it to new audiences. You can see some of the grant and outreach programs we’ve funded here, and learn more about our regular events here. We will be looking for ways to show appreciation for our members throughout the year, and hope a rescheduled festival will present some opportunities.

❄️ Do you expect to return to the Hilton and City Center in 2023?

Absolutely. While we can’t know what this next year will bring, we have every intention of being back for 2023, for as full-scale and normal a festival as conditions permit. We appreciate the patience and flexibility of our longstanding partner venues through all of this year’s ups and downs, and hope you will choose to enjoy the many other delights of Saratoga Springs this winter.

❄️ I love the Flurry so, so much and want to ensure that it survives and thrives through this exasperating year and long into the future. What can I do to help?
