Long Island Street Fairs

From the North Shore to the South Shore, and the Queens border to Orient Point, Long Island is full of bustling communities, each with their own unique qualities and characteristics. Many of our towns have Main Street areas, where neighbors often bump into each other while going out to dinner, picking up groceries, or grabbing a treat at Carvel or Ralph’s.

Summertime brings out all the colors of our communities, letting Long Island’s culture and diversity shine through the weekend days and nights. Local artists come out to show off and sell their crafts and artisanal goods, food vendors of all kinds provide crazy assortments of delicious things to eat from all over the world.

Some street fairs have rides, games, cotton candy, funnel cake (obviously the best fairs have funnel cake, just saying). But no matter what’s at the street fair, you’re always guaranteed to have a great time when you go to one, because you’re surrounded by the people who make your community what it is. Summer festivals are the perfect opportunity for Long Islanders to reacquaint themselves with their neighbors, and celebrate the communities that we’ve worked hard to build—where we take pride in raising our families and watching our children grow up.
