Albany, NY – Today, the City of Albany announced they will be holding a Virtual Tulip Festival celebration throughout the entire month of May!  The series is presented by Citizens. It will feature musical performances, Tulip garden tours, prizes and more.

"While I join so many of you that are looking forward to getting back to celebrating the annual Tulip Fest the way we are accustom to, I am excited to participate in the month-long celebration of virtual Tulip Fest," said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. "I want to thank the Office of Cultural Affairs for their commitment to reinventing this and many other traditional Albany events in light of the COVID-19 outbreak and hope you and your family and friends will virtually join us for a full month of great programming."

Virtual Tulip Festival will bring you great musical performances from local talents in unique locations, City of Albany Gardeners taking you on a tour of the Tulip beds, plus fun videos for the kids to enjoy and a whole lot more!  Videos will premiere on our YouTube Page Albany Events, on our Facebook @AlbanyNYevents, as well as on Public Access Channel Albany 1302!
