Sunnyside, Queens is home to many noteworthy food establishments, and once a year, there is a huge event to celebrate. Organized by the Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District, The Taste of Sunnyside 2023 will feature a restaurant crawl, block party with live music, a local art exhibit, and more family fun activities on Sunday, October 15th from 2-7pm.
Over 40 restaurants will be set up outside of their storefront, serving exclusive items to attendees. Experience Mad For Chicken’s Kimchi Fries, Demole’s Ceviche, Limena’s Pico Sour, Chip City’s cookie, and many more popular brands.
The 2023 Taste of Sunnyside (TOS) will showcase the diverse cultural flavors of Sunnyside, Queens. With a wide variety of food, cocktail, and dessert offerings, and live entertainment, the Taste of Sunnyside is back and better than ever. Purchase tickets here.
Actor / model, Blaise Ffrench, can be seen in an AD campaign for The TOS. There is rumor that many other popular food influencers from around Queens will be visiting Sunnyside on the 15th to join in on the fun food experience.
This ticket provides all-inclusive access to the event’s offerings. Attendees will check in for the event at Lowery Plaza (40th Street and Queens Boulevard) or Bliss Plaza (46 Street and Queens Boulevard), under the elevated 7 train, and from there can follow recommended routes on our event map to try each ‘taste’ on the crawl. Attendees will be given a wristlet to get samples from participating venues.
Attendees now have access to the Taste of Sunnyside Block Party, located on 46th Street, between Queens Blvd and Greenpoint Avenue, right under the iconic Sunnyside Arch. Get ready to party with DJ Kevin White, snap some pics at the Taste of Sunnyside photo booth, and lounge while enjoying live entertainment. In addition, Taste of Sunnyside will also host a local arts fair throughout the taste!
Several trollies will be available for those who would like transportation along the event route. In previous years, tickets have consistently sold out in advance, so attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets well in advance.
Stroll along Skillman Avenue, Queens Boulevard, 47th Avenue and 43rd Avenue— or wait for one of two trolleys making stops along the way to scoop them up and drop them off at their desired destination.
