TICKETS: Because of the unexpectedly large turnout on opening nights our first two years, we are selling limited $5 tickets to two Sneak Preview nights to minimize traffic, congestion, and the impact on the surrounding community. 20% of the ticket proceeds will go to one or more NYC charities (to be announced -- suggestions welcome!)
Tickets to Sneak Preview #1 available here.
*If* the event is not sold out in advance, then tickets will be $8 at the door.
The Queens Night Market (queensnightmarket.com) will be free and open to all again starting on May 5th.

Returning food offerings include the always-popular Trinidadian shark sandwiches, Burmese palatas, Indonesian kue pancong, Peruvian Ceviche, Persian crispy rice, Salvadoran Pupusas, Malaysian “ramly” burgers, Chilean completos and chacacero, Portuguese Pasteis de nata, Russian pelmeni, Ukrainian perogies and borscht, Romanian-Hungarian chimney cakes, Hawaiian musubi, Puerto Rican jibaritos, tacos de canasta, duck baos, jerk chicken, and more.

As always, we will have a great lineup of live music and performances, including resident DJ Lil Buddy, Brewster Moonface, and Street Juggler Luther Bangert. We'll have games and activities for visitors. And we will have our popular Beer & Wine Garden, so bring your IDs if you're interested in adult beverages!
GETTING THERE: Due to extremely limited available parking, we encourage all visitors to leave their cars at home and commute, bike, or walk to the Night Market. We are located only four blocks from the 111th Street station on the 7-train.
