Albany Tulip Festival

2022 TBA

Submerge yourself in a sea of more than 100,000 tulips at Albany's historic Washington Park this Mother's Day weekend for Albany's Annual Tulip Festival. Since Mayor Erastus Corning II read the first Tulip Festival Proclamation on May 14, 1949, the Mother’s Day weekend celebration has grown into one of the Northeast’s biggest and most beloved yearly events.

Historic events celebrating Albany's rich, Dutch heritage combined with multiple stages of acclaimed live music, craft vendors, a fine arts show, children's activities, and great food to make Tulip Festival a free, one-of-a-kind event for the whole family.
