About 300 vendors and a multicultural music and dance show will take over three blocks of Steinway Street for an international festival this Sunday.

Steinway Street Cultural Festival will take place between Broadway and 28th Ave. on Steinway Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The festival will be held alongside an International Culture Fest, which will feature musical and dance acts from Bangladesh, Korea, Mexico and other cultures.

The street festival will host a wide variety of food and craft vendors, and will feature an entire block dedicated Japanese food. Kids rides such as an inflatable bouncy house will be available in a section of the festival.

The International Culture Fest musical show will take place from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the middle of the block between Broadway and 31st Ave. 

The show’s lineup will feature musical and dance styles from around the world, including martial arts infused dance and music from Brazil; bagpipes from Scotland; and traditional costumes, music and songs from Russia, Bangladesh and Bulgaria. 

Culture Fest is being funded by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York City Council and Councilmember Costa Constantinides through the Cultural Immigrant Initiative.

Get rid of these fairs. it is the same overpriced crap. Same crappy vendors. Steinway Street is in enough trouble with empty storefronts.


It’s the same garbage from around the city. Nothing authentic about it. How much 9 dollar sausage and onions can I eat. Pathetic


That’s great. Business isn’t hard enough with taxes ,rents, water, sewer, gas, electric , cable, more taxes, repairs I could go on for an hour and these food carts are going to hurt the restaurant business in the sorounding area some more. They park in front of our restaurants some time and it’s like a slap in the face. They don’t have our overhead. The idiots that planned this should have did it in astoria Park so they don’t hurt restaurants Get rid of them.


It doesn’t happen daily therefore give some space for someone else.
You could have easily been in their position before and wanted to promote your company.


To say that shows me you never own a business. So you don’t count your stupid. !!!!


As an urban walker all I can say is that the petrol fueled generators often used by food trucks are real stinkers. They are loud and have no emission controls. Just like lawn mowers they may burn little fuel but have huge emissions. Personally, I would keep my windows closed if i lived around this area. And I do not plan on visiting the festival.
