9th Avenue International Food Festival
May 19 - May 21
Since 1973, for two afternoons, 9th Avenue closes to cars and the 9th Avenue International Food Festival takes over. Local merchants take it to the street to serve an array of ethnic foods which are representative of the different cultures in the neighborhood.
There will be continuous live entertainment on the 55th Street Stage including international music and dance performances; kid-friendly games and activities; and vendors with handcrafted goods.
Every year, profits from the Festival go back into the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood through community programs, scholarship, children’s programs, activities for seniors and holiday giveaways to needy families and neighborhood churches.
Location: 9th Avenue between 42nd and 57th streets.
Time: 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM both days, rain or shine.
