Recently, the destination has become well known for its Boardwalk Street Fairs and varied concessions along the boardwalk, which sell food and drinks from around the world.
There is now ferry service between the South Street Seaport in Manhattan and B.108 Street in Rockaway Beach.
This ferry service is bringing thousands of new visitors to the Rockaway Boardwalk every hour.​


Advertised hours are 10am-6pm.

Vendor set up begins Saturday morning at 7am and Sunday starting at 7:30am.

Vendor spaces are 12' wide x 10' deep.

We are waiting for approval to use a parking lot exclusively for our vendors right next to the loading ramp to the Boardwalk at B.81st Street.

If the Vendor parking lot fills up vendors may have difficulty finding nearby parking unless they arrive early.

After parking your vehicle you are welcome to begin bringing your items onto the Boardwalk at which time you will be assigned a space by our staff.

Please do not set up on your own on the Boardwalk

Please be prepared with a hand truck or dolly to bring your items onto the Boardwalk.

We will have personnel to help but we cannot possibly help everybody at the same time.

​Vendor vehicles may not be driven onto the Boardwalk.

Vendors may leave their set up overnight at their own risk.

In order to be guaranteed the same location the following day, vendors must leave something in their space overnight so that management knows it is reserved .

If you have paid for only Saturday you may get the same space for Sunday simply by following the steps listed above and Management will come by on Sunday to collect your rent for the day.


The NYC Parks Department prohibits vendors from using plastic bags.

Vendors must use paper or other recyclable material.
