The Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce announced the launch of “Flushing Night Out” in partnership with historic Flushing High School, New York’s oldest public high school, currently celebrating its 140th Anniversary. Flushing Night Out will take place on four Friday nights: July 15, July 29, August 12, and August 26, from 6 pm to 11 pm at Flushing High School, located at 35-01 Union Street. All events are free and open to the public.
In 2015, the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce established Flushing Night Out as the first community market and social event in downtown Flushing. In its second year, this night market series promises an exciting line-up of food and fashion entrepreneurs, as well as live music and entertainment, reflecting America’s most diverse community. The Flushing Chamber has launched a crowdfunding campaign through Generosity.com for those who want to support this community-driven initiative.
There will be four installments of Flushing Night Out, each focused on a unique theme and music set: “Summer Nights” (July 15), “Beach Day” (July 29), “Unwind” (August 12), and “(718) Love” (August 26).
Highlights of this year’s Flushing Night Out include new vendors House of Mac, featuring their triple threat, Classic Mac and Cheese, Fried Mac and Cheese, and Waffle Mac and Cheese; Nguyen’s Kitchen, reinventing Vietnamese cuisine; Lezzetli Ice Cream, offering chewy Mediterranean ice cream inspired by the textures and flavors of Greece, Turkey, and the Levant; Rib in a Cup for sizzling barbecue; Uncle Drink; and Wingbot. These vendors will be joined by veterans of past night markets, including: Arbonne International; Bao Baos; Body and Brain Yoga & Taichi; Karl’s Balls; Mix Mix; Moffle Bar; Odin’s Mighty Musubi; Oh Nought; Panda Café; Sam’s Ice Cream; Seoul’s Pancake; Snowdays; Steady; Teinei Ya; and Yumcha Yoga.
Last summer, the first Flushing Night Out community-based night market series drew a total of over 3,000 attendees in July and August. This year, the Flushing Chamber expects attendance to exceed last year’s turnout, and is partnering with Flushing High School to host Flushing Night Out on their historically-landmarked campus to meet the demand for a community night market.
Sponsors this year include Dry Sparking, Green Earth Urban Gardens, Mugwort Consulting, Gerson Properties, and Regen Acupuncture. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for companies and organizations seeking to connect with the thousands of people expected to participate in this year’s Flushing Night Out.
