Royal Tulip Ball presented by Citizens

This year we are celebrating the Annual Tulip Ball presented by Citizens and we’re thrilled to announce that it is scheduled to be an in-person event on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at the Kenmore Ballroom. After two years of not being able to celebrate this tradition in-person, it will be so refreshing to gather together in recognition of 74 years!  The Tulip Ball is the highlight of the widely-anticipated Tulip Festival weekend. For 74 years, Albany has hosted this celebration of our rich history and tradition with a three-day event featuring the annual street scrubbing, music, arts and crafts festival attended by thousands in the historic Washington Park, and the Royal Tulip Ball.

We would be delighted to include your organization among the sponsors of this milestone 74th Tulip Ball presented by Citizens as an official sponsor.  Sponsors are promoted on all the event materials and receive ticket(s) to the event. More details are below.

Please join us as we celebrate with the newly crowned Tulip Queen and her court by sponsoring and or attending this prestigious, lively, and fun-filled event.
