Sunnyside Gardens Park is gearing up to host its annual Memorial Day Fair on Saturday, May 25.

The fair, which runs from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., will be held rain or shine with a backup date of Sunday, May 26. Open to the public, the event promises a fun-filled day for the community.

Erin Anderson, President of Sunnyside Gardens Park, said the fair offers a range of activities that are especially popular among children. “Kids really enjoy the rides and the games,” Anderson said. “It’s a wonderful day out for the entire family, and it’s also a great opportunity to support the park and its various programs.”

Visitors can expect carnival rides, bouncy houses, face painting, and carnival games. While admission is free, fees will apply for rides, activities, and refreshments.

The menu includes hamburgers, cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs—vegetarian options are also available. Beverages like soda, beer and wine will also be on sale alongside festive sides.

Sunnyside Gardens Park, a three-acre facility located at 48-21 39th Ave. in the historic neighborhood of Sunnyside Gardens, was established in 1926. It is managed by community members and offers numerous amenities such as a grass playing field, running track, clay tennis courts, basketball courts, and one of the last remaining picnic groves in New York City.

The park is a hub for sports and recreation, hosting various programs for children, including T-ball, soccer, basketball, tennis, and yoga. For most of the year the park is reserved for members, although it is opened up to the public for large community events.

Is it open to all?

Cause if this event in this non public park is closed to outsiders you know where this is going.
