Now in its sixth year, the annual Flushing Street Festival will take place on Sept. 14 at 40th Road between Prince Street and Main Street in the heart of downtown Flushing.
The festival has grown into one of Queens’ major festivals with high attendance and neighborhood involvement. Residents as well as visitors from all over New York City are welcome to come and enjoy a taste of the food, fun and services in Flushing.
With over 25,000 attending last year, the signature summer event features different types of savory dishes from area restaurants along with live music and entertainment, interactive children’s activities, unique shopping and a large variety of local, regional and national partners interacting with festivalgoers, providing information, coupons and free giveaways.
The street festival provides an opportunity for visitors and residents to experience the unique aspects of Flushing, and creating marketing opportunities for businesses to showcase their products and services to consumers directly. Over 80 vendors are expected to participate this year.
