The Floral Park Chamber of Commerce, New York Racing Association and Belmont Stakes are co-hosting the Annual Floral Park Street Festival on June 7 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Vendors will line up on Tulip Avenue, from Verbena Avenue to Plainfield Avenue.

“The Tulip Avenue street festival will be fun for all ages. We’ll have face painting, balloon animals for kids,” Uptown Taco owner William Barry, who is running the festival, said. “We have a local dance school performing as well as sampling all of the food from the local restaurants and there’s lively music and entertainment from 5 to 10 p.m. hopefully on a sunny [day].”

About 40 different local vendors will set up at the street fair, Barry said. The street festival has been held for at least 20 years, but stopped for a year or two because of the pandemic, he said.

Last year, about 5,000 people attended the festival throughout the day, Barry said.

Lots of local Floral Park restaurants will be participating in the festivities, including Jameson’s, Jack Duggan’s Pub & Restaurant, Barry’s own Uptown Taco and more.

The Knights of Columbus, Floral Park Fire Department and other organizations will have booths at the street festival.

BARRK Long Island will be holding a dog adoption event.

And there will be live music throughout the day from Eman, Cross Island Collective, local DJs and more.
