Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) has a star-studded weekend coming up. Celebrity chefs David Burke and Todd English will headline the 2018 Saratoga Wine & Food Festival along with renowned, former Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz.

The three-day affair is certain to be both educational and delicious with six different events. On Friday, September 7, the festival kicks off with the Fired Up! Grill Competition. Burke and three soon-to-be-announced celebrities will judge a cook-off, where one capital-region chef will walk away the 2018 Saratoga Grill Master. Guests can help judge while enjoying music, gourmet food, Stella Artois, wine, and spirits. Ortiz will make a guest appearance at the event, followed by a meet-and-greet and VIP party with the heavy hitting baseball star.
