Flushing residents will be enjoying the neighborhood’s first ever community night market next week for “Flushing Night Out.”

The event will be taking place on Thursday, July 16, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the iconic Flushing Town Hall, which is located at 137-35 Northern Blvd.

While local vendors will be selling food, fashion and other goods at the event, a source close to the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce tells The Courier that much of the focus will be on cultural activities.

Live music and entertainment will be provided to create a warm and lively atmosphere, and the whole program is designed to showcase the unique culture of Flushing and its citizens who can trace their roots and culture to countries all around the world. This will not be just another market, but a space for family and friends to come together to create a sense of community.

Local organizations involved with the event include the Flushing Chinese Business Association, the Union Street Small Business Association and Green Earth Urban Gardens, among others still to be announced.

The chamber will announce additional details at a press conference scheduled for Tuesday morning.
