Video | 2016 Alive at Five Concert Lineup Announced


The announcement may have come on a day that felt more like winter than spring, but the announcement of the 2016 Alive at Five lineup made summer feel all that much closer. The free concert series will be held this year in downtown Albany at Tricentennial Park - at Broadway & Columbia Street - as construction is underway at the Corning Riverfront Park, where the shows have long been held. Watch the announcement.

$5 flat fee parking will be available at the Quackenbush Square Garage, located at 677 Broadway in Albany. For additional parking options, visit our Parking page. Alive at Five transportation sponsor CDTA will provide free Event Day Bus Passes for the dates of each Alive at Five concert to Albany County residents. Riders will be able to pick up passes at Albany City Hall and various locations throughout the city on the Wednesday before each show, while supplies last.

“Bringing Alive at Five back to the streets of Downtown provides an economic boost to the many businesses that rely on foot traffic for their continued success. It continues to add to the vibrancy of Downtown, Albany’s newest neighborhood, and is an excellent opportunity to showcase the transformation taking place throughout Albany’s urban core,” said Georgette Steffens, executive director of the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District.
