The Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce announced that the third annual Flushing Night Out will take place on August 18 and 19 from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Flushing Meeting House (137-16 Northern Boulevard).
Every year, Flushing Night Out is hosted at a different location to highlight the area’s unique historical landmarks. Flushing Meeting House was first built in 1694, and is the oldest house of worship in New York.
Previously, the event was held at Flushing Town Hall and at Flushing High School.
Starting at 7 p.m., the event features an outdoor market with food from local restaurants, such as Galaxy Dumpling, Sam’s Fried Ice Cream, Joey Bats Sweets, New Asian Foods, In Patella, Cat Mint Wheel, Lizzetli’s Ice Cream and Gutsier Living.
“Flushing Night Out offers a unique programming mix of arts and live entertainment from our community, in addition to its main draw of world cuisines converging at one location,” said John Choe, executive director of Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce. “We want to showcase the fantastic culture unique to Flushing and this year, we are proud to partner with the Flushing Meeting House to provide an unforgettable summer weekend of history mingled with food and music.”
Sponsors this year include Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE), Crown Container, HSBC, FlushingFood.com and the NYC Department of Small Business Services.
Tickets ($5) are available on the Eventbrite page, which you can find here.
