When Is Tulip Fest 2012 In Albany?
Tulip Fest is May 12 & 13 2012 in Washington Park, Albany, New York
Every year for the past 64 years the city of Albany has celebrated our Dutch heritage through tulip Festival (or as it's better known Tulip Fest) when there are over 100,000 tulips in bloom throughout Washington Park, many springing from bulbs as old as the city.
FRIDAY Traditional Dutch street scrubbing and luncheon
SATURDAY Royal Tulip Ball at 6:30P
SATURDAY and SUNDAY music, food, vendors, and more in Washington Park
Tulip Fest is FREE and open to the public (except the post street cleaning luncheon and the Tulip Ball which both have a fee) and for many Albany are families it's a Mother's Day tradition. Sunday is also the 14th annual Mother of the Year award.
The City of Albany has some ground rules including no alcohol (you can purchase it in the park), no glass containers, no pets, and some other general event rules.
