Albany is host to many exciting and fun things to do throughout the year.
For over twenty years, the River Rhythms and Mondays at Monteith summer concert series have drawn people from all around the state of Oregon to the beautiful Monteith Riverpark to listen to such acts as Sugarland, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, and Roseanne Cash.
At the end of August, the Northwest Art and Air Festival takes over Timber Linn Park with food, arts and crafts, live entertainment, free airplane rides for children, hot air balloons, and a mainstage concert which has presented music by Christopher Cross, Johnny Rivers, and Los Lobos. Adjacent to Timber Linn Park is the Linn County Fair and Expo which hosts a variety of events throughout the year including horse and dog shows, extreme sports competitions, concerts, the county fair, and much more.
