Festivals and Events

From summertime concerts to patriotic parades to Christmas events, there’s something going on in Albany no matter what time you plan your visit.

Some of our best-known events are musical: the River Rhythms Concert Series, the Oregon Jamboree, and the Bi-Mart Country Music Festival. But the area around Albany is also home to one of the few Jet Sprint Boat races in the U.S.; the breathtaking hot air balloon launches of the Northwest Art and Air Festival; and the largest Veterans Day Parade west of the Mississippi.
