What You Should Know

The first three Alive at Five concerts for 2021 were held virtually; however, due to the opening of New York State, all remaining Alive at Five concerts will be fully open to the public. This year's concert series is dedicated to celebrating all of the front line workers in the Capital Region who were on the front lines of the COVID crisis.

Concerts will be held at Jennings Landing in Albany on Wednesdays from 5:00pm-8:00pm for the following dates: June 30, July 7, July 14, July 21, and July 28. Admission is free, and all performances will be recorded and available to watch on the following Thursday. Check them out on the Albany Events Facebook page or YouTube channel.

Parking is available at Riverfront Parking Garage. For more information, visit

Note: On July 28, only the Joe Mansman concert will be available virtually, not the Warrant performance.
