Yes We're Local

Albany Local Week
September 21-29, 2018

Take the ALBANY LOCAL WEEK Challenge!

The City of Albany Recreation & Community Services Department is challenging residents to see how much they can do, shop, eat and play within Albany's square mile the week of September 21-29, 2018. ALBANY LOCAL WEEK is an opportunity to discover and celebrate what Albany has to offer while supporting our local businesses and organizations. Local businesses are offering Albany Local Week Specials and there are a number of local events taking place during the week. 

2018 Uber Albany Local: 
Keep track of your Albany activities from September 21-29, 2018 and log your progress on the Official Albany Local Week Scorecard. You earn points in categories such as: Food/Drink, Shopping, Services, Health & Beauty, Recreation & Entertainment, Special Events and Good Neighbor. The person with the top score will be honored with his or her name on the UBER ALBANY LOCAL CUP, which will be put on prominent display at the Albany Community Center. 

Everyone who submits their scorecard by September 28, 2018 will receive a limited edition prize. The winner will be announced and crowned "Mr./Mrs. Uber Albany"at Dinner with Albany on September 29th.

Offer a Local Discount, Offer or Event:


If your business would like to offer a special, a discount or event during the 2018 Albany Local Week (Sept 21-29, 2018), please submit this form by July 1 to be included in the 2018 Fall Activity Guide, the map and on the web page. You will also receive a "Yes, We're Local" sign for your store. 

We provide Albany Local Week scorecards for participants to keep track of their doings (and earn points Yahtzee-style) during the week. At the end of the week, the resident with the most points will be crowned the Mr. or Mrs. Uber Albany winner!
