9th Avenue International Food Festival
May 18 - May 19Free
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 including international music and dance performances; kid-friendly games and activities; and vendors with handcrafted goods. Admission is free; food and beverages are available for purchase.
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.
The Festival is held on 9th Avenue between 42nd and 57th streets, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM both days, rain or shine.
