The Summer Event is part of the NFBBA's longstanding commitment to growing business on the North Fork, supporting agriculture and tourism, and at the same time, welcoming both neighbors and tourists to enjoy some of the delights the East End has to offer year round.
For more than 20 years, the NFBBA has been partnering and supporting local businesses and services involved in the hospitality sector, while ensuring a high standard of accommodations and helping to increase the number of tourists/visitors to the North Fork. The association has launched numerous promotions with local businesses and charitable groups. During 2011, several special events are planned, including the Summer Event and the NFBBA's Annual Holiday House Tour, on December 3rd.
The North Fork Bed & Breakfast Association officially represents the bed and breakfasts on the North Fork to the many commercial and promotional organizations on Long Island and in New York State.
