Fire officials say Adnan Hussein, 28, set fire to a ticket booth at the 18th Avenue Feast of Santa Rosalia last month in Bensonhurst.
The ticket booth burst into flames as people were running away from the inferno.
No one was hurt in the fire.
Fire Marshals arrested Hussein this weekend. He faces charges of arson, reckless endangerment, and criminal mischief.
