The Albany Visitors Association (AVA) is pleased to announce the 2019/2020 “Albany Visitors Guide” is now available. Published each summer, AVA’s colorful magazine is jam-packed with ideas for visitors or even residents who want to discover what’s new in our city. The guide is free to both industry and the general public.
This year’s feature story focuses on one special Albany Historic Carousel & Museum animal, Fredrick the Hare, and the “tail” behind his creation. The giant bunny with “serious ears” is one of more than 30 animals hand-carved and hand-painted adorning the carousel—all which possess deeply personal tokens from their sponsoring humans.
Other sections include Albany’s vibrant growing restaurant scene, Linn and Benton County “food trail” connections, recreation (swimming, hiking, biking, fishing), entertainment, shopping, and the history and heritage of our city and surrounding region.
Stop by the Albany Visitors Center at 110 3rd Ave SE for your free copy or telephone AVA at 541-928-0911 to order multiple copies for businesses or tourism organizations. AVA is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Can you please send me a link to an article that was in one of your 2018/19 visitors guides? It was about the greyhound at the carousel museum. He was on the cover. I can’t find it on your site. Thanks!
Here is the link to the digital version of our 2018/2019 Guide. The story about Neal is on page 20.
