The City of Albany presents its 20th Annual Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival, on Saturday, September 10th. The all-day free concert event will be held at the Jennings Landing. The event kicks off at 12 p.m. with the presentation of the Henry Johnson Award. Five incredible live acts will take the stage throughout the day and the event will conclude at 8 p.m. with a fantastic fireworks display! Media sponsors for the event are WVCR 88.3 FM and WCDB 90.9.
In the event of inclement weather, the festival will move to the Corning Preserve Boat Launch at Water & Colonie Streets.
Since its debut in 2002, the City of Albany Jazz Festival has featured an eclectic array of all-time musical greats, critically acclaimed up-and-coming artists and local favorites. Great food, beverages and vendors make the Jazz Festival an event for all ages- and admission is still free!
The City of Albany’s Riverfront Jazz Festival will celebrate its 20th year continuing our partnership with Zero Waste Capital District, a volunteer coalition. With the combined efforts of the City of Albany Sustainability Department, Zero Waste Capital District and City of Albany Department of General Services teams we hope to make this the most environmentally friendly festival in the area! Representatives will also be on site to give helpful tips to festival attendees on how to compost and recycle at home.
