The moms of the Capital Region have long held the spotlight at the Albany Tulip Festival, the famous Mothers Day weekend spectacular culminating in the crowning of Albany’s Mother of the Year. Generations of mothers have celebrated their special day at Tulip Fest.
There’s plenty for dads to enjoy at Tulip Fest, but don’t they deserve their own party?
Enter Dad Fest, a new Father’s Day tradition kicking off this summer at Jennings Landing on Albany’s Hudson Riverfront. Dad Fest is the City of Albany’s celebration of all the fantastic fathers out there and the things they love – a day full of great live music, beverage tastings, delicious barbecue, dad-centric retail vendors and more fun for all ages. Dad Fest is chance for the whole family to kick back and enjoy an early summer afternoon at the Capital Region’s most picturesque park, surrounded by good folks, good tunes and good times. Of course, you don’t have to be a dad to enjoy Dad Fest – this new event offers a little fun for everyone.
