The 71st Annual Royal Tulip Ball will take place on Saturday evening, May 11, 2019, at Sixty State Place. This wonderful annual event is an opportunity to celebrate our Capital City.

The Tulip Ball is the highlight of the widely-anticipated Tulip Festival weekend. For 71 years, the City of Albany has hosted this celebration of Albany’s rich history and tradition with a three-day event featuring the annual street scrubbing, the music, arts and crafts festival attended by thousands in the historic Washington Park, and the Royal Tulip Ball.

Proceeds from this year’s Ball will benefit the Capital City Fund.

Please join us as we celebrate with the newly crowned Tulip Queen and her court by becoming a member of the Honorary Committee of this prestigious, lively, and fun-filled event.
