Noontime live music returns to downtown Albany this summer as “Tunesday” in Albany’s Tricentennial Park offers free entertainment every Tuesday in July and August from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. From flamenco guitar to hip-hop turntablism, a wide variety of acclaimed local artists will perform each week.
Tricentennial Park is located at Broadway and Columbia Street with parking available here. All events are weather dependent. Tunesday is supported by the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District.
Whether you’re looking to slow down with a morning meditation or dance on your lunch break, Downtown has you covered this summer. These free events showcase the best of the Capital Region and add to the bustling landscape of restaurants, retailers and entertainment venues that make this such an attractive neighborhood to live, work and visit.
