Alive at Five 2016 - Albany Summer Concert Series

Alive at Five is Albany NY’s premiere free summer concert series! Every Thursday evening in the summer, distinguished national, regional and local artists bring their best performances to this popular event.

Due to construction at Corning Riverfront Park, this year's Alive at Five series will be held in Tricentennial Park, at the corner of Broadway and Columbia Street in Downtown Albany. The move is temporary, and the series will return to a vastly improved riverfront in 2017.

Alive At Five Concert - Albany NY Riverfront

Since a summer party isn’t complete without ice-cold beer, lemonade, and a great BBQ, local vendors are always on hand supplying plenty of food and drinks.

Don't miss the Alive at Five outdoor summer concert series this year on Thursdays from June 9 - August 4, 2016 at 5:00pm... It keeps Albany alive!
