September Splendor

Saturday, September 14, 2019

Held in the Lake House, September Splendor is the Conservancy’s signature fundraising activity and celebrates the beauty of our historic park at a lovely time of year. An end-of-summer tradition in Washington Park, September Splendor is the only event that raises funds to preserve and improve this historic park.

Lantern Parade

Sunday, November 3, 2019

A new tradition in Washington Park, the Lantern Parade is a celebration of community and creativity that lights up the night as the days shorten towards winter.  In 2018, nearly 1,000 people participated in the third annual Lantern Parade on November 4! The Lantern Parade is the culminating event after months of lantern-making workshops at locations throughout the city of Albany.
