We’re very happy to announce that the Lark Street Business Improvement District is back up and running! With new staff, new motivation, and new initiatives, we are looking forward to being back on Albany’s radar. With this first blog, (in a very long time) we want to talk about something fun that everyone knows and anticipates every year.. LarkFest!! September 20th is right around the corner, and although that means the summer is coming to an end, what better way to close it out than with New York’s largest one-day street festival?? From 10am-5:30pm Lark Street will host hundreds of vendors with crafts, art, food, drinks, public information, retail and more! One of the best parts of LarkFest is the live music, with TWO stages- one near the Madison Avenue end of Lark Street, and one near Washington Avenue. Performers start at 11:30am and are continuously running until 5:30pm. We’re very excited for this years lineup, with some great local/nationwide talent, and some amazing performers who have been waiting to play LarkFest for years!!
