As the summer comes to an end, let it go out with a cymbal crash and a trumpet blast. Don't miss Albany's Riverfront Jazz Festival on September 7, 2013. The festival brings acclaimed musical guests, great food and fireworks ... and best of all, it's FREE!
Since 2001, the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival has featured the 'who’s who' of jazz greats, critically acclaimed up-and-coming artists and local favorites! The banks of the Hudson River are transformed into Congo Square for a lively day of “jamming”, free musical entertainment and more.
Join in the “steady beat” at Albany’s Jennings Landing (formerly Albany Riverfront Park) at the Corning Preserve. There will be food and beverages available for purchase, and many performances to enjoy all day long.
The back beat begins at 1:00 and lasts all day through 9:00 pm, ending the jazz fest with an appropriate “shout chorus” of fireworks!
This year the fun starts early with the Downtown Albany Jazz Fest Competion - you can choose the first act of Jazz Fest!
