The International Center

Welcoming the World to New York's Capital Region

The International Center, based in New York’s Capital of Albany, helps the Capital Region engage with the world and promote international understanding.

We serve an area that extends north to Plattsburgh, south to Westchester County, east to the borders of Vermont and Massachusetts and west to Syracuse. The International Center does this by:

  • Serving as citizen diplomats by hosting international visitors and delegations, and promoting professional and cultural exchanges.
  • Fostering education, awareness and advocacy about cultural diversity and global issues.
  • Promoting the assets of the New York Capital Region to the global community.
  • Offering shared services for international groups in the Capital Region.

The International Center of the Capital Region was chosen by the U.S. Department of State to create the American experience for more than 200 emerging opinion-shapers from around the globe this past year.

6th Annual Tastes of the World International Food Tasting

Tastes of the World 2019


When: Tuesday, April 9th, 2019, 5:30 – 8:00 PM
Cost: $50 General Admission $35 Young Professional (35 & under)
Where: Hampton Inn & Suites located at 25 Chapel St, Albany NY

Over the years our organization has been welcoming hundreds of visitors to the Capital Region, and we've found the best way to serve as citizen diplomats, share and understand another culture is through great food and drinks. That was the basis for our first Annual Tastes of the World back in 2014, and stays true today.

This year we are welcoming Yono's serving Indonesian, Ama Cocina serving modern Mexican, Tara's Kitchen serving Moroccan, Swiftys is serving Indian, Greek Desserts Baklava by Pastry Chef Joan Dembinski, Normanside Country Club is serving Creole, and Pebbles Asian Fusion with Chinese cuisine. Come thirsty with great beer from Rare Form Brewing, with more to come! The event will also be topped off with a silent auction, and a wine pull and we hope you will join us in making 2019 a successful year.

For more information contact Ryan Moll at (518) 708-7608 or at ryan@iccralbany.org.
