SAVE the DATE and plan to bring the family for this all-day event with Balloons, Crafts, Food and FREE music. The Northwest Art & Air Festival is a truly unique event. Balloonists from around the country flock to Albany every year in August. Early in the morning, they launch from Timber-Linn Park for flights around the Albany area. Artists fill the grassy meadows of Timber-Linn Park with a wide variety of artwork, family zone, food vendors, music throughout the day, and airport activities.
