Green Island Gazebo (GIG) Announces 2022 Summer Concert Schedule
The Village of Green Island, located just north of Albany and situated on (and in) the Hudson River, will once again host its annual free summer concert series at the Green Island Gazebo, or GIG.
Located in River Park at the north end of Hudson Avenue, GIG is best known for its free summer concert series, although GIG also hosts the annual Tree Festival in December.
Summer concerts take place every Wednesday evening from 6-8pm and are made possible by generous sponsors and the GIG-a-bite team who bake and serve delicious treats weekly with a group of volunteer bakers who donate desserts.
No taxpayer money is used to fund the GIG Summer Concert Series, with GIG profits being used to make improvements to River Park and Paine Street Park, and to support other groups such as the GI Senior Citizens .
Concerts are held at the River Park Gazebo on Hudson Ave. In the event of rain, concerts will be held under the Collar City Bridge on Hudson Avenue. Smoking and drinking alcohol are prohibited in the park.
