Events in the City of Albany

Events are an important part of our community, both socially and economically.

From large-scale regional events that bring visitation to the region, to grassroots community events that celebrate community spirit, our identity, diversity and heritage.

The City of Albany organises a range of annual and special events for our residents and visitors to enjoy, but also encourages and supports others to run events in Albany too.

Albany is an ideal place to hold events. We have all the facilities and infrastructure needed to hold events of any size, from festivals to concerts, adventure sports and everything in between.

If you’re planning to hold an event in Albany you may need approval and our Events Approval Team. We are happy to guide you through the process so you can have confidence your event will be safe and run smoothly. To find out more about holding an event in Albany, please see Organising An Event
