Community celebrations are more than just fun; they also create a sense of belonging for youth and adults. Community celebrations have become a part of Saratoga's identity. Thousands of people attend the annual Independence Day Celebration every Fourth of July, and the yearly Blossom Festival has a history dating back to the early 1900s. There are also numerous arts, music, and dance festivals, as well as events that celebrate nature, such as Arbor Day.
The City of Saratoga owns and maintains medians in City streets and uses seven locations in these medians for banners to promote community identity and civic pride, beautify City streets, and inform the public of community events.
