Feastival of QueensReal NYC foodies know about all the amazing ethnic foods that can be found in Queens.

This ticketed culinary experience will feature the very best Thai, Mexican, Colombian and Nepalese food the borough has to offer, all in bite size form.
To experience the FEASTival of Queens, folks can purchase a $25 ticket to sample each of the five vendors, leaving you with a full stomach and a happy feeling that only delicious ethnic foods are capable of giving.
