How well do you know the Downtown neighborhood? Here's a fun way to find out - and maybe find your new favorite restaurant or retailer!

The Downtown Albany BID will host a Downtown "Nipper Quest" Scavenger Hunt all day on Small Business Saturday, November 25. Free to participate! Download the #NipperQuest guide here. 

Prizes up for grabs are:

How does the #NipperQuest scavenger hunt work?

  • Pick up your #NipperQuest guide at Handmade at the Hollow between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM on November 25. 
  • Your job is to find as many Nipper holiday posters throughout the businesses of Downtown and snap a picture (look for posters that resemble the image on this page)
  • You will have until 11:59 PM on Saturday, November 25 to post your photos on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #NipperQuest.
  • The scavengers who found the most #NipperQuest posters will win the grand prize. There will also be prizes given out for the most creative & most festive photo(s).
  • In order to participate accurately, you must write "#NipperQuest" somewhere in the caption of the photo so we can find it on social media or tag the Downtown Albany BID on Facebook (@albanybid), Twitter (@albanybid) or Instagram (@Downtownalbany).

Guides can be picked up at the Handmade at the Hollow event from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, located at 79 N. Pearl Street, Albany, NY 12207,
