Celebrating 25 years of music, Albany’s free signature free concert series premiered in the summer of 1990 with a performance by legendary folk artist Richie Havens, and has since grown into a staple of summer in the Capital Region. This year’s eight-week Alive at Five season runs through August 7, showcasing a diverse lineup of big names, up-and-coming acts and the region’s most talented original local artists. Official Alive at Five t-shirts and posters will be available for sale at all concerts. FREE.

Parking is available at Riverfront Garage,  the official parking location for Alive at Five, with a connection to the pedestrian bridge to Jennings Landing at the Corning Preserve. There is a $5 flat rate for Riverfront Garage parking on Alive at Five nights. Handicap parking with easy access to Alive at Five is available at this location. For more parking information, visit www.parkalbany.com.
