The Covert Avenue Chamber of Commerce will celebrate its 25th year hosting the Covert Avenue Street Fair on Saturday, September 21, on Tulip Avenue from 11 a.m. to 5p.m. The quarter-mile event stretches from Tulip Avenue to Cisney Avenue and includes giant inflatables, face painting, a craft fair, live music and food.

Covert Ave Street Fair

The LIRR Expansion Project team has been coordinating with the Villages of New Hyde Park and Stewart Manor, as well as with the Nassau County Police Department, to ensure the seamless integration of the Covert Avenue vehicular detour plan with the street fair. The project team has been meeting with the Covert Avenue Chamber of Commerce throughout the course of the project, reminding everyone Covert Avenue remains “open for business”.

The elimination of the Covert Avenue grade crossing is part of the LIRR Expansion Project to strengthen the reliability of LIRR infrastructure and to support the growth and development of Long Island and the wider region.
