FREE FEST: Dad Fest @ Albany’s Washington Park

0

Around Greater Nippertown, we celebrate Mother’s Day with the Tulip Festival in Albany’s Washington Park. And not to be outdone, we celebrate Father’s Day with Dad Fest in Washington Park.

And like the Tulip Fest, Dad Fest is a free, family-friendly outdoor party on the park’s Parade Grounds featuring great food, arts and crafts vendors, children’s activities and, of course, plenty of live music performances. Also new this year is a classic car show. It all takes place from 1-6pm on Sunday (June 17). In case of inclement weather, Dad Fest will be moved at the Corning Preserve Boatlaunch Parking Lot under the I-787 overpass.

Here’s the complete schedule of bands for the 2018 Dad Fest:

1:30pm: Sly Fox and the Hustlers
3pm: Hartley’s Encore
4:30pm: Grand Central Station

Throughout the day: Students at School of Rock Albany
