Fiddles & Foliage Festival: A Music-Filled Day of Family Fun to benefit Caffè Lena’s School of Music

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The sounds of fiddles, banjos, guitars and singing will fill Saratoga’s High Rock Park noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24.

Styled after an old-time carnival, the Fiddles & Foliage Festival will showcase Caffè Lena’s School of Music, an all-ages folk music lesson program run by the Saratoga Springs venue. 

Music fans and prospective students are encouraged to attend, play games, and enjoy live music and food in an old-time atmosphere. Event is rain or shine.

All proceeds from the Fiddles and Foliage Festival benefit the programming at Caffe Lena’s School of Music serving the community with classes for children, adults, and seniors.

Tickets are Adults: $10, Kids under 14: $8. 

Launched by Caffe Lena in 2020, the School of Music reflects Caffe Lena’s long-standing dedication to folk music. 

Caffè Lena School of Music maintains a five-to-one student-teacher ratio, with additional volunteers on hand to help all the children keep up with the group. Donations and fundraisers keep tuition affordable, sustain a need-based scholarship program, and maintain a stock of instruments for students who don’t have their own.
