The World’s Fare is returning to Queens for the second successive year this weekend, with over 10,000 visitors expected to grace the Citi Field venue over the course of the two days.

The event, which taps into the spirt of the World’s Fair festival of 1964, aims to celebrate the diversity of Queens by offering attendees a broad range of international cuisine, drink, music and dance.

A team of leading culinary experts have curated the event, which will include more than 100 food vendors. The event will also feature an international beer garden that will serve over 50 beers from around the globe. There will be unlimited tastings to attendees who are over 21 years of age.

In addition to the beer garden, there will be several cocktail bars at the festival. These bars will offer international cocktails over the course of the weekend.

The World’s Fare is not simply limited to food and drink. There will be a shopping pavilion where attendees can buy clothes, jewels and art from around the world.

There will also be a celebration of international dance and music embracing many different cultures and age groups.

The festival will run from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday in the parking lot of the iconic Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

The ballpark is centrally located in New York City, near the 7 line and the Long Island Rail Road’s Mets-Willets Point station.

General admission tickets are $23 for adults and $9 for children, which will provide access to the vendors and a host of free activities. Each vendor will charge separately for the food, drink or other items.

Tickets for general admission, a souvenir mug, and three hours of unlimited beer tastings in the International Beer Garden are $49.
