Winter Vernissage held in New York

The AYF New York “Hyortik”, Manhattan “Moush” and ANC-NY Chapters hosted their third annual New York Vernissage fundraiser event on Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 1-5 p.m. at St. Sarkis Church in Douglaston, NY. 

Although Vernissage has previously been hosted in New York City during the springtime, we fruitfully introduced our first Winter Vernissage in Queens this holiday season. With over 100 people in attendance, we continue to appreciate the cultural accomplishments of our local Armenian brands selling goods such as apparel, accessories, food, art and more. All proceeds from the event, which amounted to over $1,500, are to be donated to ARS’s Artsakh Relief Fund.

Considering our vendors’ incredible creations, some of which have been handmade by fellow Armenians, Vernissage continues to hold a special place in the AYF community’s heart. Both “Hyortik” and “Moush” members recognize how this event not only strengthens bonds in our neighborhood but also unites vendors from different states and underscores the significance of helping our fellow Armenians. 

If you are interested in participating in future Vernissage events as a vendor, please contact for more information. We look forward to hosting another successful NY Vernissage next year along with our members of the Greater New York community!

AYF New York "Hyortik" Chapter

The AYF-YOARF New York “Hyortik” Chapter existed even before the AYF was founded in 1933 and works to unite Armenian youth and organize activities in Queens and Long Island. The chapter has a Senior and Junior chapter. The New York “Hyortik” Chapter sets out to achieve its goals and objectives throughout the year with events such as commemorating the Armenian Genocide every April 24th in NYC; fundraising for our homeland; hosting a fall festival and Christmas dinner with juniors; annual Super Bowl parties; and ski trips. The AYF-YOARF’s five pillars (athletic, cultural, educational, political, social) guide this chapter and help to keep its membership active and at the forefront of the Armenian cause at all times.
