Albany, NY - Mayor Kathy Sheehan will introduce the five finalists for 2018 Albany Tulip Queen at a press conference in Washington Park on Wednesday, May 2nd at noon.

After one finalist is crowned Tulip Queen at the annual Tulip Festival, all five young women will spend a full year working together on community outreach programs and local literacy campaigns as the Albany Tulip Court. 

One of the five nominees will be crowned Tulip Queen at the 70th Annual Albany Tulip Festival on Saturday, May 12 at noon on the Lakehouse Stage in Washington Park.

Nominations were accepted from January through April.  For additional information regarding the Tulip Queen & Court and the nomination process, visit www.albanytulipqueen.com.
