This year’s event will take place on August 24 from noon to 6 p.m., and for the first time it will take place outside. One block of 38th Avenue will be closed between Main and Prince streets in front of St. George’s Church for the event.
Approximately 20 food vendors will line the block, while plans call for local artisans and musicians to be showcased inside the church’s auditorium. The chamber is still looking for interested vendors. Registration forms are available by calling (718) 886-8810 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This is the first time we are having this event in the heart of Downtown Flushing, so we expect a great turnout,” said chamber president Taehoon Kim. “FNO 2019 will be a good opportunity for local entrepreneurs to market and connect with thousands of potential customers.”
The event will take place just as tennis fans begin to flock to Flushing for the 2019 U.S. Open, which organizers hope will bring even more visitors to the event.
“We want to showcase the unique products and services you can’t get anywhere else,” said chamber executive director John Choe.
