Taste of Sunnyside Restaurant Crawl 2023
Sunnyside’s favorite annual traditions is returning as a restaurant crawl. The Taste of Sunnyside, after 12 years as a congregate food festival, has now been re-invented as an open-air, door-to-door Restaurant Crawl to take place Sunday, October 15th from 2-7 p.m.
The 2023 Taste of Sunnyside will showcase the diverse flavors of Sunnyside, Queens. With a wide variety of food, beer & wine offerings, and live entertainment, the Taste of Sunnyside is back and better than ever, while celebrating the resilience of this unique neighborhood.
Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District produces the event annually to showcase the neighborhood as a dining destination, and to encourage locals and visitors to discover local restaurants. With the cumulative effects of the COVID crisis on the restaurant industry the Taste of Sunnyside aims to help stimulate support and a strong comeback for neighborhood food and beverage businesses.
The ticket provides all-inclusive access to the event’s offerings. Attendees will check in for the event at Lowery Plaza (40th Street and Queens Boulevard) or Bliss Plaza (46 Street and Queens Boulevard), under the elevated 7 train, and from there can follow recommended routes on our event map to try each ‘taste’ on the crawl. Attendees will be given a wristlet to get samples from participating venues.
But that’s not all, this year’s event is bigger and better, with exciting new elements that will blow your taste buds away! Attendees now have access to the Taste of Sunnyside block party, located on 46th Street, between Queens Blvd and Greenpoint Avenue, right under the iconic Sunnyside Arch. Get ready to party with DJ Kevin White, snap some pics at the Taste of Sunnyside photo booth, and lounge while enjoying live entertainment! In addition, Taste of Sunnyside will also host a local arts fair throughout the taste!
Several trollies will be available for those who would like transportation along the event route. In previous years, tickets have consistently sold out in advance, so attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets well in advance.
