Queens’ largest outdoor flea is bringing the diversity of the borough to the market this weekend. In addition to vendors selling vintage clothing, furniture, collectibles, jewelry, antiques, art and amazing food this Saturday and Sunday (October 5&6), LIC Flea will host a Weekend of Japanese Culture.
There will be booths dedicated to Japanese food, music, art and more. Fan favorite Oconomi will be serving up their Japanese vegetable pancakes in addition to vendors offering stirred fried noodles known as Yakisoba, Japanese curry, rice balls and “creative” sushi.
Celebrating Japanese culture, children and adults will be able to try their hand at Japanese calligraphy with an instructor on site who will teach participants how to hold a brush. There will also be an origami station where you can turn paper into art and Kabuki face painting, featuring faces of a traditional Japanese play.
Along with the delicious Japanese treats and activities, visitors will be able to enjoy three unique performers. Female geisha dancers in costume will perform in a group called Salme and Japanese pop singer Reni Reni will also make an appearance. The final performance combines music with audience interaction as the Poku Poku Boys play Koto, a traditional string instrument, while translating names from English to Japanese in calligraphy, allowing audience members to take a piece of the performance home.
