About Festivals in Albany

Each year, the city of Albany, New York holds a wide variety of festivals and events. No matter what time of the year it is, festivals in Albany are sure to delight locals and visitors alike. At the Albany Tulip Festival in May, crowds converge on Washington Park to see more than 140,000 tulips in bloom. Another spring favorite is the St. Sophia's Greek Festival, which celebrates Greek heritage with traditional dancing and cuisine. In June, Albany visitors and residents gather at Dad Fest to celebrate their fathers with barbecue, beverage-tasting, and live music.

Albany also hosts several music festivals. Albany music festivals include the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival, which features both established musicians and rising stars, and the MOVE Music Festival, which is the largest music festival in the northeastern United States. The MOVE Festival features bands that specialize in a wide range of genres, from Indie rock to Americana to EDM.

One of the most popular Albany events in December is the Albany Last Run, where runners of all ages and skill levels come together to mark the end of the year with a 5K run on a course brightened by holiday lights. For more refined tastes, the Wine and Dine for the Arts in January offers fine dining and seminars given by high profile speakers.
