Albany, NY - Mayor Kathy Sheehan will introduce the five finalists for 2019 Albany Tulip Queen at a press conference in the Washington Park Lakehouse on Wednesday, May 1st at noon. 
Part of an Albany tradition that stretches back seven decades, these finalists were chosen by a committee of local leaders through an extensive interview process based on their community service backgrounds and leadership skills. 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 71st Annual Albany Tulip Festival on Saturday, May 11 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.  

The 71st Annual Albany Tulip Festival presented by Citizens Bank will be held May 11 & 12, 2019. For more festival information call 518.434.2032 or visit www.albanyevents.org.
