The 26th annual New Hyde Park Street Fair will take place on Sunday, Oct. 22, kicking off at 10 a.m.

The event will be held until 4 p.m. on Jericho Turnpike from New Hyde Park Road to Lakeville Road. The event was previously scheduled for this Saturday but was pushed back to the rain date by the village of Tuesday due to the weather forecast. 

Attendees can expect to visit village merchants and restaurants, enjoy children’s carnival rides in the Central Boulevard parking lot and meet over 100 vendors, local businesses and community service organizations that will be on hand. 

Performances and demonstrations from martial arts and dance studios will also be occurring throughout the day along with an extrication drill display by the New Hyde Park Fire Department.

First responders will simulate removing a victim from an automobile using various tools, such as the Jaws of Life, during an extrication drill. 

The street fair is being organized by both the Village of New Hyde Park and Craft-A-Fair Long Island.

From 10 a.m. to noon, DJ Dan the Man from High Voltage Production will be performing, followed by the band FiveStone, who will be performing from noon to 4 p.m.

This year’s street fair date was delayed to October from its original date in September due to criticism of the event being held during Rosh Hashanah. 

The village’s previous 25 street fairs were held on the third Saturday in September, falling this year on the holiday–also known as the Jewish New Year–which holds significant historical and cultural importance in the Jewish faith. The last time Rosh Hashanah overlapped with the street fair was in 2020 when it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Future village events this month include the 3rd Annual Halloween Parade on Saturday, Oct. 28. The parade will begin assembling at 9:30 a.m. in the Lakeville parking lot before beginning at 10 a.m. The parade will end at village hall where activities will be held.
