When you’re in the market for a new car, traveling all over town or sitting at a computer screen can put a damper on what should be an exciting experience. That’s where the annual Albany Auto Show comes in! From November 2nd through the 4th, a massive array of new vehicles will be grouped together in one convenient location at the Times Union Center, giving visitors a chance to walk around, feel, sit in, and fall in love with their next dream car.
A Can’t-Miss Event That’s Right For You
Even if you’re not planning to purchase a new car for a few months or even a year, the Albany Auto Show is still a can’t-miss event. Why? It’s a prime opportunity for car enthusiasts and future buyers to examine and compare the most recent makes and models of various vehicles.
You’ll be able to see a wide variety of cars, trucks, vans, and more all in one indoor location. Not only that, but you can meet and connect with representatives from local dealerships and product specialists, which will help later when you’re looking to buy from someone you trust.
Auto Show attendees can take the time to get a feel for the vehicles, ask questions without any pressure to buy, and pick up business cards. You’re sure to leave feeling much more confident about purchasing a new car when you’re ready.

Classic Cars Too
On the first floor of the Atrium at the Times Union Center, the Saratoga Automobile Museum will present a display of classic cars throughout the entire weekend. Get a close look at these older vehicles and see how they influenced the modern ones at the Auto Show.
Crowd favorite Mr. Twisty will be strolling around the arena and entertaining the younger kids on Saturday and Sunday. During all three days, Caricatures in cars by Mark will offer complimentary caricatures of you in your favorite new vehicle at the show.
The Northeast Ski & Craft Beer Showcase
