Happenings at Stuyvesant Plaza

It's the most wonderful time of year...
Twinkling lights, magical window displays, glittering gift ideas, even an old-fashioned, horse-drawn carriage ride!
Come celebrate the warmth of the season with Stuyvesant Plaza!



Window Decorating Contest

Now thru December 21

The Window Decorating Contest is just one of the unique ways Stuyvesant Plaza celebrates the holiday season. Storefront windows will be designed in holiday themes. Plaza patrons are invited to stroll the shopping center to view the windows and vote for their favorite by checking in at the Stuyvesant Plaza Facebook page and posting their own photo of their favorite window décor. One voter will be randomly selected to win a $50 gift certificate to a Plaza store of their choice. Additionally, the winning business will receive recognition during an upcoming UAlbany Men’s Basketball game.


Share the JOY!

Now through December 21

Spread holiday cheer with “JOY in Stuyvesant Plaza”. You’re invited to complete the word JOY with your own body by standing next to the giant “J” and “O” letter statues at Stuyvesant Plaza. The letter sculptures will be located in two locations: near Cold Stone Creamery and Jean Paul Spa.

Share and tag a photo of yourself or a loved one completing the word JOY on  Facebook,  Twitter or Instagram using #JOYinStuyvesantPlaza. Now through December 21, one photo each week will be randomly selected to win a prize from Stuyvesant Plaza.
