    A Dutch Stroll is a guided walking tour within the original perimeter of Beverwyck.  Learn how the tenacious Dutch adapted to the New World, formed relationships with the Native Americans and adjusted to English rule before the Revolution.  This special Tulip Festival edition will highlight the origins of the Albany Tulip Festival and the enduring friendship with our Dutch Sister City, Nijmegen. The tour will end on State Street where we will witness the official kick-off of the Albany Tulip Festival and the traditional street scrubbing ceremony.

    Tour begins at the Discover Albany Visitors Center and ends on State St. at noon for the Tulip Festival Street Scrubbing
