About Us

Letter from Mayor Sheehan

Welcome to AlbanyEvents.org, your online source for the City of Albany, NY’s  signature free events. 

For decades, Albany has presented an array of award-winning events  celebrating our Capital City’s rich heritage and Hudson River landscape. We strive to provide world-class art, entertainment and culture for  residents and visitors of all ages, completely free of charge. Our  events showcase the best local, regional and international musical  talent, family entertainment, food, fine art, crafts and more in venues  that reflect the beauty of New York’s Capital Region. From the  springtime tradition of the Albany Tulip Festival in historic Washington Park to the acclaimed sounds of the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival,  there is truly something for everyone to enjoy all year long. We present these festivals, concerts and neighborhood events for you, and we welcome you to share your feedback and ideas with us through this website.

I hope you’ll enjoy learning more about the spectacular, free,  community-oriented events that the City of Albany is proud to offer. 


Mayor Kathy Sheehan
