75th Royal Tulip Ball

This year we are celebrating the 75th Annual Tulip Royal Ball on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at the New York State Museum Terrace. We are thrilled to be celebrating this tradition in its 75th year! The Tulip Ball is the highlight of the widely-anticipated Tulip Festival weekend. For 75 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.
