Church Avenue Street Fair
Sunday, April 26th, noon to 6:00 p.m.
A fun-filled, action-packed day of rides, games, vendors, and special events will be yours at the annual Church Avenue Street Fair. The event will extend from Coney Island Avenue to Argyle Road.

Special Events
  • 1:00 to 2:00: At the Chicken-on-Church food competition, chefs from Am-Thai, Anarkali, Downtown Natural, El Acuario Restaurant, Golden Krust, Hunger Pang, Mallenche, and Shayna's will each prepare a chicken dish and submit it to a panel of judges. At the BID table between E. 10th Street and Stratford Road at 1:15, the judges will taste the dishes and choose a winner.

The Q Gardens team consists of a handful of local residents who have spent the past two-and-a-half years working with the MTA to reclaim the overgrown lot behind the Church Avenue B/Q train station. Just last month, they began clearing the land for the lot’s transformation into a community garden. They'll be at the fair with a composting bin to collect food scraps and to answer questions about their project. Location: between Coney Island Avenue and E. 10th Street
