Enjoy Art, Music & Food at the 39th Annual LarkFest in Albany: September 26, 2020

Editor's Note (8/17/2020 8:00AM): The Lark Street BID has announced that the 2020 LarkFest has been canceled due to restrictions on mass gatherings due to COVID-19.

You won't want to miss out on Upstate New York’s largest one-day street festival. LarkFest is one of Albany's most anticipated events with 50,000 people expected to attend each year.

Visitors can look forward to live music and entertainment from top regional bands, fun activities for people of all ages, visual art, craft vendors, delicious food, and much more.
