Festival Fever: Albany Tulip Fest Line-Up Announced

April showers bring May flowers. And along with the May flowers comes Albany’s annual Tulip Festival, of course.

The 64th annual Albany Tulip Festival takes over Washington Park in Albany from 11am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday, May 12-13. As usual, the park will be chockful of food vendors, arts & crafts, children’s activities, lots of continuous music on two stages, and plenty of tulips in bloom, too. And, yes, it’s all free.
