#InTheLoop | Take a Winter Escape at Queens Farm
BY QEDC It's In Queens
This weekend is the last chance to get some color.
Queens County Farm Museum hosts The Winter Escape until Sunday, Jan. 24.
The perfect definition of the word “Instrammable,” this roughly one-acre exhibition features such displays as Candy Cane Rose Garden and Gingerbread Village along with huge nutcrackers, purple reindeer, and pink wreaths.
Hundreds of cascading, silk flowers are all over the place, too, and according to rumors, they’re in bloom!
The Winter Escape is open to the public on Thursday and Friday from 11 am to 4 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Last entry is at 3:30 pm. It’s presented by Azizan Ali and Laila Ahmed from The Floral Escape, the same entity that spearheaded Queens Farm’s recent Fall Escape.
Advance tickets are required, and general admission is $24, but $15 for children under age 11. (Youngsters who are not yet one years old can attend for free.) Due to COVID-related safety concerns, visitors must sign up for allocated time slots and wear face masks while exploring the show.
Queens Farm, which has free onsite parking, is located at 73-50 Little Neck Parkway in Glen Oaks.
