What is The World’s Fare, you ask?

Well, inspired by the actually World’s Fair of years passed (get it? fare and fair?), this food-centric festival is an all-out celebration of New York City’s unique diversity. Paying tribute to the 1964 Fair, in particular, the event will showcase over 100 amazing vendors representative of, you guessed it, over 100 different cultures found here in NYC.

Curated especially by some of the city’s most prominent tastemakers (Jean Lee, Neil Foster, Russell Jackson or Liza Mosquito Deguia, anyone?) the international-food extravaganza will take place on April 28th and 29th in Queens, no less.

And though, true – the full list of this year’s awesome vendors is far too long to publish here in full (you can take a look at it on the World’s Fare website, however) we thought we’d give you a taste of our favorite options:
