The QCA Block Party, which will take place on the first day of summer on Saturday, June 21 from 4 to 10 p.m., will be located at the backlot of Kaufman Astoria Studios and feature musicians from Make Music New York, a barbecue throwdown by local restaurants, a poetry slam and an evening film screening.
In March, Kaufman Astoria Studios, the Museum of the Moving Image and the Queens Council on the Arts announced the designation of the Kaufman Arts District, the first of its kind in the borough.
The Kaufman Arts District spans from 31st Street to the west, 34th Avenue to the north, Steinway Street to the east, and 37th Avenue to the south.
This block party, which is expected to be the kickoff of more upcoming Astoria events, is QCA’s fourth Moveable Feast Artist Dinner event, which serves as a fundraiser to support the High School to Art School Portfolio Program.
Admission to the QCA Block Party will be $35. For more information click here.
