Vendor Information

The City of Albany Office of Cultural Affairs invites businesses to participate in the numerous opportunities that exist for vendors during special events produced by the City. All events are presented free to the public.

Vendor opportunities exist in multiple Albany locations, including Washington Park and Jennings Landing at the Corning Riverfront Park. .

Please note: Prospective vendors must complete an application and return it with payment to the Cultural Affairs Office in order to be considered for participation. Applications are available online approximately two-to-three months prior to an event. All applications will be reviewed and selected by a panel of jurors. All vendors must meet the criteria listed in each application in order to be considered for the event. Due to the high volume of applications and limited space at each event, spaces are occasionally sold out prior to the application deadline. Potential vendors are encouraged to contact the Cultural Affairs Office for a current status on space availability. Walk-in vendors are NOT permitted at any time.

Please see the list of current vendor event applications below. For more information, email or call the Cultural Affairs Office at (518) 434-5416.
