ALBANY NY – Alive At Five is Albany NY’s premiere summer concert series. Every Thursday evening in the summer, distinguished national, regional and local artists bring their best performances to Albany for this popular event.
Alive At Five draws an enthusiastic and energetic crowd to the Corning Preserve at Jennings Landing (formerly known as Albany Riverfront Park) for dancing, food, refreshments, and entertainment. This year is the 26th Anniversary of Alive at Five!
And 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 drink.
CDTA and the City of Albany will provide free Event Day Passes for the dates of each Alive at Five concert to Albany County residents. Riders will be able to pick up passes at the Times Union Center, the Palace Theatre, the Downtown Albany BID office at 21 Lodge Street or the Central Avenue BID office at 176 Central Avenue. The passes will be available from 10am-4pm on the Wednesday before each show, while supplies last. One pass per person; riders must present valid ID with an Albany County address and be able to identify the bands playing that week's concert to be eligible for an Event Day Pass.
Don't miss the Alive at Five outdoor summer concert series this year on Thursdays from June 11 - August 6, 2015 at 5:00pm... It keeps Albany alive!
