Art on Lark is an annual summer street festival that celebrates local art and artisans in Albany, NY. One day each year in June, the city’s historic Lark Street is shut down to traffic and transformed by artists' displays including painters, photographers, jewelers, sculptors, ceramicists, live performances, and music. Shoppers can enjoy all the regular businesses Lark Street has to offer including cafés, restaurants, gift shops and bars, as well as over 50 local artists popping up for the day with their individual booths.
Attendees can also enjoy food, drinks, live music, and the best of Lark Street!
With an average yearly attendance of almost 10,000 people, Art on Lark is the second largest street festival in upstate New York and has been voted the Capital Region’s Best Arts Event by both the Times Union Readers Poll and Metroland.
Art on Lark is presented by the Lark Street Business Improvement District, a not-for-profit organization that serves "to build, sustain, and enhance a unique and prosperous living and business community for the residents, merchants, and visitors of the Lark Street neighborhood of Albany, NY”
