Stoop Stroll & Garden Tour

Pick up for the programs and voting tickets will be at 235 Lark Street from 10am onwards. Every attendee receives one complimentary vote for the Stoop Stroll competition. If you have donated you will receive 1 vote for every $1. This is a self-guided tour.
In 2021 we had over 60 stoops decorated in their finest for this one special day – and this year we are hoping to do even more!
From 10-4pm stroll around the historic neighborhoods of Center Square & Hudson Park and enjoy the creativity of residents who will be decorating their stoops in a celebration of architecture, community, and Albany! We will also have several gardens open to the public to visit, and will once again have local vendors at Hudson Jay Park.
This was a huge success last year with hundreds of attendees, so we can’t wait to recreate it. Thank you to everyone for their donations – all funds raised go to support our three organizations.
Registration is not required – all those who register will receive a reminder email before the event. Pay what you wish.
Day-of program pickup will be at 235 Lark St, outside Trinity Church.
