More than 60 vendors and the best networking in the borough
With delicious dishes, divine drinks, and dazzling desserts, the Queens Economic Development Corporation and the Queens Tourism Council will host Queens Taste 2017 at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Tuesday, May 2, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
The reasons to attend are as diverse as the borough. This year’s lineup includes Cypriot, French, Georgian, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Kosher, Malaysian, Moldovan, Paraguayan, Peruvian, Puerto Rican, and Thai cuisine. Foodies can expect everything from crunchy to creamy, fiery to flaky, and sweet to savory.
More than 60 restaurants, beverage purveyors, and dessert makers will offer samples of their products. Plus, clients of the Entrepreneur Space, a food-and-business incubator that QEDC operates in Long Island City, will be on hand with their artisan specialties, such as gluten-free products and ethnic desserts.
Finally, there’s the networking. Most of the anticipated 650 attendees either live in Queens or do business in the borough (or both). So this will be the perfect scene to meet like-minded individuals, talk shop, and exchange business cards in a friendly atmosphere.
Tickets cost $125 each or two for $200. They are available at www.thequeenstaste.com. Proceeds support QEDC’s ongoing efforts to attract, create, and maintain jobs in the borough. As QEDC is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, proceeds are tax deductible as permitted by law. For more information, call Rob MacKay at 718.263.0546 or send him an email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
