Thank you River Rhythms tonight’s show was awesome!
Tried to go eat downtown on 3rd but the parking lot for where the restaurant was full of people going to river rhythms. I wonder how much business is lost due to such poor behavior by the community. It clearly states parking for the shopping center where we were attempting to go.
Is there arts & crafts for the kids tonight?
since I have never been to the concerts at the park where do you park for it?
I finally got to see Mat Kearney live! Thanks to River Rhythms! Best concert ever!

We are planning to go for the first time tomorrow. What is the parking situation? How large are the crowds? How early should we get there if we want a blanket spot close?
I just love the impersonator's you get. They are great. Is like to see more!!! Keep it up.
When will we know the 2018 performers?

Free concerts on Thursdays in July and August located in Albany Oregon in Monteith Riverpark. Proudly produced since 1984 by Albany Parks & Recreation.

For nearly 30 years, River Rhythms has brought a wide variety of music to the greater Albany community each Thursday night in July and August. For complete details go to riverrhythms.org

In light of today’s announcement by Oregon Governor Kate Brown, we will sadly not be able to present River Rhythms, Summer Sounds and Northwest Art & Air Festival as planned. Over the last few weeks, our team has been working through a variety of possible scenarios to still bring some excitement to Albany this summer.

Stay tuned to our social media and website as we will release information regarding our finalized plan in the weeks to come. We are working hard to communicate with our sponsors, performers, and vendors to ensure we are all on the same page.

We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate these uncertain times. We have a Parks & Recreation team that is second to none, we put heart and soul into these programs. This is extremely difficult for us, but we're not letting it get us down for long! We look forward to updating you soon. Be well and remember, summer is not cancelled, it is just going to look a little different.

Here is a fun throwback! 2015 Andy Grammer joined us for one of our favorite concert memories! Albany showed up that night. Also side note, Andy Grammer and his band were some of the nicest performers we have ever worked with. They were wonderful! That concert will go down in the memory books for us. How about you all?! Which concert was your favorite and why? Was it the music, the company, the experience?

Hey Albany, we miss you!

Currently, we (Albany Parks & Recreation) are working remotely as we continue to plan our 2020 events for all of you. We will be announcing the performer line-up later then usual due to a lot of unknowns at this point. When we are able to, we will be sure to let you know who is coming to join us this summer!

Our hope is the everyone will take a responsible course of action by following the guidelines set forth by local, state, and federal health authorities in order to get through this unprecedented time. This includes our own office, with staff working from home! We will continue to monitor updates from the federal authorities and provide updates about the events as we have them. For the most up to date information, be sure to follow us on Facebook. Our current plan is to continue moving forward with our summer events and we look forward to seeing you there!

In the meantime, we want to keep spirits up and the music alive with throwbacks and historical information about the amazing River Rhythms concert series…this might even include some staff videos with our favorite memories (maybe some bloopers), photos, and more! We will invite you to share your memories with us too.

Stay safe and healthy, we can’t wait to see you all soon.

Save the dates for the 2020 River Rhythms Concert Series produced by Albany Parks & Recreation!
