Momo Crawl Passport

Join us this November 5th, as the annual Momo Crawl comes back to Jackson Heights for the 6th consecutive year! This crawl calls attention to an area featuring over 20 restaurants selling the Himalayan dumpling known as the momo, promoting local entrepreneurship, community, and culture.

Purchase your Momo Passport below (only first 1,000 purchasers get THE Momo Passport book. Additional attendees will receive a Momo Map)

Musical performances: Yeshi Khando Dendi Sherpa Tsering Phuntsok Tenzin Dechen Tenzin Gurung Tenzin Kunsang Karma Dolma Tenzin Kunchok

Dance performances: Lhakar Lotus Cholsum Doegar

Featuring: Two vintage momo trolleys to take you around the perimeter of the crawl Free momo henna from SamArt - Contour Free REAL tattoos from Mohan's Tattoo Inn Leaves Plates Initiative The release of the I Love Momos app (created with support from BCNA - Business Center for New Americans) Games, attractions and more...

The winner of the Momo Crawl will be determined by popular vote at 4:30pm. We will then present the new Championship Momo Belt to the winners.

This year is a partnership between Jeff Orlick, the founder of the Momo Crawl, and Students for a Free Tibet, an international non-profit organization that works in solidarity with the people of Tibet for their freedom. Before the final tally, Orlick and SFT will arm wrestle for control over the Momo Crawl.

To participate in the crawl, guests purchase a $10 passport where they can then crawl by foot or trolley to over 20 restaurants selling momos for $1 each. Proceeds go to Students for a Free Tibet.
