Washington Park

The Art on Lark festival celebrates local artists & small businesses this October. Lark Street is currently undergoing a historic renovation, so this year Art on Lark will take place in Washington Park, just one block from Lark Street. Vendor displays will include painters, photographers, jewelers, ceramicists, food, and Community Resource Fair along with live, local music.

With an average yearly attendance of about 10,000 people, Art on Lark is the second largest street festival in upstate New York and has been voted the Capital Region’s Best Arts Event by both the Times Union Readers Poll and Metroland.

Art on Lark is presented by the Lark Street Business Improvement District, a not-for-profit organization that serves to build, sustain, and enhance a unique and prosperous living and business community for the residents, merchants, and visitors of the Lark Street neighborhood of Albany, NY.

Once again, we encourage you to come out to our “Village in the City” for the day and enjoy an eclectic display of Albany’s arts district! This is a fun, family-friendly festival of local businesses, artists, makers, music, and great food!
