Stroll a Street Fair
All summer long, street fairs pop up throughout the borough of Queens. Each one has a different theme and attracts residents from within Queens and surrounding New York City boroughs. Enjoy the Spring Fling Car Show in April, the Strawberry Festival in June, and the Sunnyside Skillman Festival in late August. The festivals showcase local art, vendors, food, crafts, entertainment, and much more. Residents can often just walk out their front door and down the street to be a part of the excitement within minutes, as there is never a street fair far away when you live in Rego Park.
