Downtown Albany: A Year of Activities

Downtown Albany is one of my favorite places. It is where I work, where I play, and where I volunteer. I’m pleased to present a years worth of things to do in Downtown Albany!

I will be at many of these events myself and would love to see some new faces enjoying all that Downtown Albany has to offer. There are 16 total events so mark your calendars! I will of course be updating the Willamette Valley Activities Guide which will have events listed from all over our beautiful valley.

Year 2 was a big success!

I had a great experience at Midsummer Arts this year. I’d like to see this annual event continue to flourish.

Midsummer Arts

Our 2nd annual Midsummer Arts festival of free performing arts is in books – thank you to all of our performers, volunteers, and audience members who made it big success! We estimated roughly 400-450 people enjoyed the show in the warm summer sun. We have tons of great momentum going into Year 3! Mark those 2015 calendars for August 1, always that first Saturday in August, for our next Midsummer Arts!

As we work on future festivals, we’re very interested in your feedback. This event can only survive with massive community support – so we need to hear from you! If you attended this year’s festival, please take a moment to complete this short feedback form. We’ll use the information to make sure Midsummer Arts always gets bigger and better!
