Queens International Night Market
Queens Night Market - 2017 Sneak Preview #1
TICKETS: Because of the unexpectedly large turnout on opening night the last two years, we are selling limited $5 tickets to two Sneak Preview nights to minimize traffic, congestion, and the impact on the surrounding community. Half of the ticket proceeds will go to NYC charities**
Tickets to Sneak Preview #2 available here.
The Queens Night Market (queensnightmarket.com) will be free and open to all again starting on May 6th.

We still have a general $5 price cap on food, although a few vendors may be selling at $6. Art/merchandise offerings incude Quechuan handicrafts, NYC-theme apparel, Indian jewelry, contemporary art, emoji paraphrenalia, and henna.
As always, we will have a great lineup of live music and performances, including resident DJ Lil Buddy, Bollywood cover band Do The Needful, Indian-music-meets-electronica Rini, and powerpop rocking Supermajor. We'll be unveiling some new 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!
