The Saratoga County History Center will host the Saratoga Chips and Beer Festival on Saturday, November 12th, at the Brookside Museum, located at 21 Fairground Avenue, in Ballston Spa, NY.
This friendly, casual gathering celebrates two things that go well together, potato chips and beer. The famous Saratoga Chips are the feature of the museum’s current exhibit, “In the Saratoga Style: Potato Chips and Their Regional Folklore.” Festival goers can enjoy Saratoga Chips, represented by Mechanicville’s DeCrescente Distributing Company.
The festival, a benefit for the Saratoga County History Center, is $20 in advance, and $25 on the day of the event, while designated drivers will be $10. SCHC members receive a $5 discount. Snacks and the first beverage are included in the ticket price.
John Kirk and Trish Miller of Greenfield Center will provide live music. To round off the festival, there will be a campfire, a S’mores station, a silent auction, and a game of potato chip trivia.
The festival will take place from 1 to 5 pm. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (518) 885-4000 or visit the Brookside Museum website.
