The World’s Fare Returns To Queens This Month With Over 100 Vendors

It’s been over 50 years since the 1964-65 World’s Fair took place in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Now, “The World’s Fare” will bring together over 100 vendors to celebrate the global diversity of cuisines and cultures for a second year—and it’s happening next weekend! 

The World’s Fare will take place at CitiField as a “grand celebration of equality and the diversity of New York City paying homage to the great Fair of 1964. Over 100 vendors from over 100 cultures will come together and unite through authentic food, drink and music curated by New York City’s leading taste makers.”

Inspired by the iconic World’s Fair, you’ll find the Unisphere and New York State Pavilion nearby—both structures original built for the 1964 fair.
