2022 Alive at Five

4:30pm - 8:00pm

Albany’s 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. Showcasing a diverse lineup of big names, up-and-coming acts and the region’s most talented original artists, Alive at Five offers eight weeks of free, critically-acclaimed performances catering to nearly every taste.

Parking: $5 flat fee and handicap parking is available at the Riverfront Garage at Broadway and Columbia Street. For more information on parking options, visit www.parkalbany.com.
