Father's Day Classic Car Show

Astoria Park Alliance is excited to host this first time Father’s Day event along the East River. The community is invited to walk down Shore Boulevard exploring dozens of classic cars from around the region.  Park-goers of all ages are encouraged to meet the car owners and talk about their vehicles.  Live music, family activities, food and craft vendors will also stretch along "The Strip," making for a unique and exciting Astoria experience.  Classic car owners will have their vehicles professionally judged in a variety of categories, with an awards presentation on stage to end the event.

Astoria Park, with its gorgeous views of Manhattan, has a long history of being a magnet for car and motorcycle enthusiasts. Walk the strip on any given day and you are likely to run into proud vehicle owners parked along the riverside showing off their rides and enjoying the view. The Father’s Day Classic Car Show aims to embrace the past, while looking to the future.

Join us for this special day along one of the most iconic strips in New York City.  For car owners interested in displaying their vehicle, please contact getinvolved@astoriaparkalliance.org
 

The car show is made possible with sponsorship support from Old Astoria Neighborhood Association.

Shore Fest - Main Lawn

Shore Fest - Main Lawn

On Saturday, September 16th, Astoria Park Alliance will bring its signature Shore Fest event back to Astoria Park. The event festivities will take place on the Main Lawn adjacent to the Bocce Court off Shore Boulevard

The event has intentionally been scheduled for mid-September to take advantage of comfortable weather that late summer brings.

Live music will be performed on a main stage procured by The Alliance with a rotating set of local musicians from 1 - 5 pm. Among the confirmed acts, Astoria newcomer Ithalia Johnson will deliver her soothing rhythmic wave of folk, rock and soul, while Astoria veterans The East River Blues Band performs American classics.  

Shore Fest promises to bring fun for all ages with classic competitions like potato sack races, egg on a spoon and bean bag toss. Local Astoria retailers have donated generous gift prizes for Shore Fest participants. 

Shore Fest will also be a place to learn a new skill or hobby like bocce, yoga, zumba, ukulele, and even improv acting. Kids will be encouraged tojump around inside a giant bounce house, get their faces painted and enjoy assorted arts and crafts activities on the main lawn.

Astoria Park Alliance is celebrating its ten-year anniversary, and 2017 also marks the organization's first year as an official 501(c)(3) non-profit. APA welcomes the community to celebrate these achievements while connecting with other Astorians in enjoying the park’s beauty. Shore Fest is a free and fun festival that promises to close out the summer in style.

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP on Eventbrite and check social media for programming updates. In case of inclement weather, Shore Fest will proceed the following day.

Event Partners include: Art Beat 5, Art Fiesta Studio, Astor Apiaries, Bee In Motion, The Noguchi Museum, New York Roadrunners, NYC Ferry, NYC Parks Playmobile, Roberto Buscarsi Ukulele & Unlimited Body NY
