On Saturday, September 21st, 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 with potential local sponsorship from Ridgewood Savings Bank.
Live music will potentially be performed on a main stage procured by The Alliance with a rotating set of local musicians from 1 - 5 pm including The Fogo Azul Drumline, East River Blues Band and more!
Shore Fest promises to bring fun for all ages with classic potential competitions like a watermelon eating contest, 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 potentially be a place to learn a new skill or hobby like bocce, yoga, zumba, bird watching, and even improv acting. Simply Fit Astoria will be leading live cardio dance demos at 2pm. A Donut eating contest for all ages will be supported by new Astoria donut shop Sugar & Water. Kids will be encouraged to get their faces painted and enjoy assorted arts and crafts activities on the main lawn.
Astoria Park Alliance is celebrating its twelth-year anniversary, and 2019 marks the organization's 2nd full 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 Facebook and check social media for programming updates. In case of inclement weather, Shore Fest will proceed the following day.

About Astoria Park
Widely known for its beautiful pool, the oldest and largest in the city, Astoria Park offers more than aquatic pleasures. Outdoor tennis courts, a track, a bandstand, multiple trails, basketball courts, and playgrounds lure visitors from the five boroughs and beyond. Sitting on the edge of the East River and resting between the Triborough Bridge and Hell Gate Bridge, the park offers shoreline sights and sounds that make the benches along its perimeter popular spots year-round.
