The Richmond Hill Block Association’s annual Park Fair, one of the oldest community events in Queens, is turning 46 this year.

The fair is set for Saturday, Sept. 14 in Forest Park, at the Buddy Monument on the park’s eastern edge, at the intersection of Myrtle Avenue and Park Lane South.

The fair features local vendors, carnival food, rides, games, live music, a flea market, raffles and all sorts of family-friendly fun.

The Richmond Hill Block Association, founded in 1973, has been sponsoring a community fair from its first year in existence.

“The Park Fair is the RHBA’s primary fundraiser each year, allowing them to continue their community focused work,” Paul Bankert, the association’s vice president, said in a email to the Chronicle.

The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will go on rain or shine, the organizers said.

The event is an all-volunteer effort, Bankert noted.
