Queens... A Taste of the World (fundraising event)

vvvindaloo Mar 27, 2009 08:19 AM

I recently heard about this annual event for the first time. Over 40 food purveyors from the Borough will converge at Citifield on the evening of April 21st for a non-profit food and wine event sponsored by the Queens Economic Development Council. Tickets cost $65-75, depending on when you buy them, and are tax deductible.
I am intrigued. And surprised to never have heard any discussion of it on these boards!
Has anyone ever been?

    No one has heard of this? I'm going to try and find out which Queens restaurants are participating, and will post back when I have info...

      Not only have I heard of it, but I've attended 4 years in a row! It is a food lover's delight; the cuisine is delish and the atmosphere is fun, fun, fun! I'm a Chicago native, home of the country's biggest taste fest and I will say that this one is a good second. Come on now, nothing beats home. ;-) But I strongly suggest that you hop on over to Citi Field and feast away!

        Can you advise where we can pick up tickets at?

      I did a google search and found a couple of answers. Here is one.

      There is a link to buy tickets at the bottom.
