Art on Lark

Artists and craftspeople take over Lark Street one day each summer for Art on Lark! Check out local pieces to purchase - everything from paintings to caricatures to tee-shirts to stuffed animals - or just browse and enjoy all the art and live music.

Champagne on the Park

How does sipping champagne in beautiful Washington Park sound? The Lark Street BID and the City of Albany come together to host this May event that is the kick off to the Tulip Festival. You can expect live music, champagne, wine, hors d'oeuvres, and more fun at Champagne on the Park.

Lark Street celebrates the holiday season with the Santa Speedo Sprint, a thrilling 800-meter run to raise money for the Albany Damien Center and the HIV/AIDS program at Albany Medical Center. Participants wear everything from speedos to Santa uniforms to more festive outfits.

In addition, Lark Street BID often has other winter events going on, like A Taste of Lark: Chili & Chowder Edition.
