Atlantic Antic

Perhaps you are looking for a family friendly event for an upcoming weekend or you are simply looking for something to do that deviates from your usual activities. Regardless, the Atlantic Antic Festival, which is the largest street festival in New York City, is quickly approaching and is sure to be a great time.

This 41st annual festival, brought to you by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation, will take place on Sunday, September 27th.  Spanning four neighborhoods in Brooklyn, all of the action will be between Hicks Street and 4th Avenue from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. This festival will take place rain or shine, so if it is raining, do not let that deter you from missing out on this highly anticipated festival. 

The Atlantic Antic Festival is all about food, shopping, music, and art. You will be able to browse the many vendor booths, which will include both local and national vendors. This is the perfect time to find new art for your home, treat yourself to something you like, or to buy a gift for the upcoming holidays.

You will also find an assortment of food at this festival, so make sure to come hungry! A few of the delicious food options include sausage sandwiches, funnel cake, roasted corn, and so much more. 

With 15 music and performance stages, you are sure to find something to entertain you that you will enjoy. Check out the DJ's and feel the beat, watch a ballet performance or local martial artists on stage, or squeeze in some exercise by participating in zumba, body combat, or grit cardio. There will also be a number of live music acts. 

Your little ones will be thrilled with all the fun activities available to them at the Atlantic Antic Festival. For instance, they will have the opportunity to go on a pony ride, get their faces painted, and sit back and listen to stories being told aloud. 

The Atlantic Antic Festival even has a mobile app that you can download, which provides you with key festival information. This is a great way for you to keep up on the latest information and to connect with other people attending and participating in this festival.
