Queens International Night Market
October 19 @ 5:00 pm - 11:59 pm
The Queens International Night Market is a family-friendly event located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, directly behind the New York Hall of Science. The event boasts small-scale cultural performances, picnicking areas, and more than one hundred vendors selling merchandise, art, and food. The respective diversity of America, New York, and most importantly the borough of Queens is on full display nearly every Saturday night, Spring through Fall. From Jamaican Jerk to Peruvian Ceviche, Portuguese Egg Tarts to Burmese Palata, attendees will find a little bit of anything and everything at the market. Even better, the organizer of the market institutes an affordability cap, so your night out won’t break the bank. Vendors agree to offer their products between an affordable $5-$6 price point in exchange for subsidized vendor fees.
The first two Saturdays are Sneak Previews occurring on April 20th and 27th. The event is selling limited $5 tickets. 20% of the take is going to the charities, New York Immigration Coalition and City Harvest. Note: Outside of the previews, entry to the event every Saturday is free, but most vendors only accept cash payment.
