Albany History Fair

The 12th Annual Albany History Fair will be held on Sunday, May 15 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Albany Visitors Center (Intersection of Clinton Avenue and Broadway). The theme of this year's fair is "Commerce in New York's Capital City". Highlights include music provided by Old Songs, Cherry Hill's Hudson River Trade Game: Albany's Connection to the World, a walking tour by City Historian Tony Opalka, displays by local historical organizations and more.
The event is being held in conjunction with Heritage Weekend, a now annual statewide celebration. The Times Union continues to serve as media sponsor, and Hudson River Construction Company has provided generous support.
There will also be an Underground Railroad Walking Tour that day. You must
register in advance. If you would like to attend please register through email to or calling 518-432-4432.
