Grand Avenue Maspeth Street Festival

The Maspeth Grand Avenue Street Festival is held every June and September.  Each year, Grand Avenue is filled with families and friends who flock to the many food and beverage stands, games and amusements, vendors, merchants and many other participating groups.  The Maspeth Lions Club holds its Maspeth-Famous Sausage and Peppers stand on the corner of 69 Street and Grand Avenue in front of Iavarone Bros.  All proceeds earned by the Maspeth Lions are used to help support charitable contributions and other Maspeth Lions projects.

Pancake Breakfast


Pancake Breakfast

Every year, the Maspeth Lions Club hosts a pancake breakfast at St. Stanislaus Church.  Families are invited to attend for a nominal fee to enjoy as many pancakes, bacon and breakfast sausage they like.  All proceeds are applied to several Lions Club causes such as help for the blind, the diabetic and others.

Ragamuffin Parade

Halloween parade conducted by the Maspeth Lions Club in which community members of all ages are invited to parade down Grand Avenue in their costumes.  The parade always receives a very nice turnout of children of all ages.  The parade begins at Mount Olivet Cemetery's main gate at Grand Avenue and Remsen Place and continues down Grand Avenue to its final destination of Maspeth Federal Savings Bank's parking lot at the corner of 69th Street and Grand Avenue.  The parade culminates with bags of candy being distributed to all children in attendance.


Lions Feed the Homeless

Every year, the Maspeth Lions Club travel to a Queens Homeless shelter to take part in a day of feeding the homeless of our city.  It is important to help those with no food and no place to go, especially as the weather gets colder.  The Lions prepare trays of hot food to bring to the less fortunate and help them to get a warm, cooked meal in their stomachs.

Fishing Trip - St. Mary's Children's Hospital

The Maspeth Lions Club annual fishing trip takes place every summer.  We are joined by the children of St. Mary's Hospital for a day of fishing, eating, drinking, prizes and fun in the sun aboard the Dolphin fishing boat out of Freeport, NY.  It is our goal that every child catches a fish and receives a medal for their efforts.


Lions Bus Trips
In Memory of Lion Joseph S. Sikorski

Throughout the course of the year, the Maspeth Lions organize a series of bus trips to various locations.  Each bus trip usually includes a stop at a Vineyard & Winery for Wine Tasting and a meal/cheese tasting and then continues to a major area casino in New Jersey or Connecticut.  Previous trips have gone to Renault Vineyard and Stonington Vineyards and casinos in Atlantic City and Connecticut's Mohegan Sun.  All of our bus trips are always successful days of fun, entertainment, good food and wine and a great day for all who attend.  All of the proceeds generated by our bus trips are earmarked to various charities, including Lion Joe Sikorski's two favorite charities - The Guide Dog Foundation and the Lion's Eye Bank.  Other charities benefited are local Lions projects and activities to help children and the disabled throughout the year


Lions Nursing Home Christmas Visit

During the Holiday Season, the Maspeth Lions Club pay a visit to the residents of Maspeth's Midway Nursing Home.  For years, the Lions have been visiting those who are sick and in need of care.  At Midway Nursing Home, the Lions bring joy to the many lonely residents with Holiday treats, entertainment and fun.


Lions Children's Christmas Party

During Christmas time, the Maspeth Lions hold their Annual Children's Christmas Party.  The party is held for those children who come from difficult and challenging backgrounds or who are not as fortunate.  The Lions hold the party at St. Stanislaus Parish Hall in Maspeth, providing food and drink, games, entertainment, gifts to each child, and a visit from Mr. & Mrs. Claus.  It is always a positive event that brings a lot of joy to each child during this time of the year.  The Holidays should be the happiest times of the year and, although for some they can be difficult times, the Lions remain dedicated to making sure each child has a happy holiday memory from this event.
