The lineup for Albany’s Tulip Festival has been officially announced, and this free, signature spring event will continue its tradition of being THE place to be on Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8.
Area vendors, businesses and community organizations will be located throughout historic 81-acre Washington Park. World-class live entertainment and original, local artists will be performing on every stage.
The Saturday festivities kick-off at 11:30 AM on the Washington Park Lakehouse Stage, with a performance by The Mendelssohn Club and the crowning of the 68th Annual Tulip Queen. The same stage will then feature performances by Olivia Quillio, Carl Daniels & the Black Box, Victory Soul Orchestra and the Stockade Kids. The Main Stage will feature The Parlor, Tokyo Police Club and Langhorne Slim & The Law. See full details and times here.
Sunday’s festival fun begins at noon when one area mom will be named Mother of the Year, followed by another excellent lineup of performances on both stages, featuring Jonathan Edwards, The Last Conspirators, McKinley James, Of the Atlas, Jim Gaudet & The Railroad Boys, Bear Grass and Red Haired Strangers. See full details and times here.
The Kidzone Stage will be providing continuous entertainment for all ages, all weekend long. You can also check out Saturday’s Albany Center Gallery Live Art Tent, the School of Rock tent and a Green Market.
