Take your taste buds on an international journey at a
series of food events that are coming to Long Island
City this fall.
In April 2018, Festival Media hosted a re-imagined
one of the most iconic fairs and hosted “The World’s
Fare” at Citi Field. Over 10,000 people gathered to advocate
for the equality and diversity in the city’s food
industry while enjoying a number of exhibits and activities.
Following the success of The World’s Fare, Festival Media is putting
on two events as part of The World’s Fare Passport Series.
The World’s Fare Passport Series will focus on international
cuisine. The first event, which will take place on Sept. 22 and
23, will focus on the Americas and highlight Surf ‘n Turf, and
the second event, which will take place on Oct. 20 and 21, will
highlight Asia and celebrate all things “extra spicy.”
Both events will also have access to a beer garden, music
and entertainment from a specific region of the world.
Each event will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 5-25 46th
Ave. in Long Island City. Admission is $7 and children ages 10
and under will be admitted for free.
