Fine food, music and entertainment will be part of the fun found at this year’s Wonderful Woodhaven Street Festival along Jamaica Avenue on Sunday, Oct. 18.
Sponsored by the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation (GWDC), the festivities will take place from noon to 6 p.m. under the elevated J/Z line on Jamaica Avenue between 80th Street and Woodhaven Boulevard.
According to GWDC Executive Director Maria Thomson, the family-friendly gathering will include pony rides and games for children, an assortment of street food vendors and a marketplace filled with a variety of other vendors.
The festival’s musical menu is just as enticing, with performers including the Mary Lamont country western band and the Malaysian Lion Dancers.
Residents of Woodhaven and nearby communities can reach the festival by taking the J/Z line to the 85th Street-Forest Parkway or Woodhaven Boulevard stations. The Q56 bus line, which operates along Jamaica Avenue, will be rerouted while the festival is underway.
