Albany Visitors Association - Travel News - August 2019

High summer in the Valley

Mid-summer is officially upon us in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Linn County is abuzz with exciting fun things to do. You can start by celebrating all summer long with First Fridays in downtown Albany or take a short ride to the plucky "Tomato Day" at the Lebanon Downtown Farmers' Market. Plus, the Albany Historic Carousel & Museum is turning two years old on August 17th with a family carnival that’s not to be missed.

The summer's BIGGEST event starts at the NW Art & Air Festival on August 23rd with colorful hot air balloons turning the park grounds into a magical garden of lanterns. Artisan booths, food trucks, and free outdoor entertainment featuring pop legend Rick Springfield on the 24th
make this THE family event of the year.

Featured August events also include a family geocache coin challenge, Cascadia earthquake preparation for the monthly "History Bites" lecture at the Albany Regional Museum, a family-oriented live musical at Albany Civic Theater (Seussical Jr.), and an absolutely spinning Covered Bridge Bicycle Tour.

Read our high summer blog and don't miss
any of the great events happening in August.

Summer Produce

You can still find all the delicious things to eat at the Albany Farmers’ Market on Saturdays, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Stock up on honey, jam, berries, greens, bread, and meats at the market. Enjoy a cup of coffee and a freshly baked gluten-free cupcake with mile-high frosting. So many yummy things, so little time—so bring your grocery bags down to the market early at 4th and Ellsworth, and start exploring!
