The Kings County Fair, Brooklyn's most popular family event, returns to Aviator Sports and Events Center, located at Floyd Bennett Field on Flatbush Avenue, just one half mile south of Belt Parkway Exit 11S. The fair will be open daily from Thursday, May 15, through Sunday, May 26.
Adults and kids alike are invited to Floyd Bennett Field – New York City’s first municipal airport and part of Gateway National Recreation Area – to soak up the bright sun, cotton candy and carnival rides at this year’s fun-filled family event. The Fair will once again include a variety of rides and games for those of all ages, tasty treats including deep fried candy bars, corn dogs, funnel cakes and BBQ.
Featured this year will be Aussie Kingdom, the only traveling Australian animal stage show in the US and Canada. You’ll see kangaroos, wallabies, wallaroos and other native Australian wildlife that you only hear and read about. Aussie Kingdom will bring the Australian Outback to life, right here in Brooklyn.
Hours of operation will be: Monday – Thursday: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday: 5 p.m. to midnight; Saturday: noon to midnight; and Sunday: 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.
General admission will be $5.00 per person. Children under 36” of height will be free. Ride costs will vary per ride or unlimited ride wristbands will be available for purchase on weekdays only.
Annually, Aviator Sports and Events Center partners with Reithoffer Shows, a North American family-owned and operated traveling midway show founded in 1896, to bring Brooklyn and its surrounding areas the Kings County Fair.
