The 40th annual Atlantic Antic is noted as NYC’s largest street fair and this year’s festival is sure to be the biggest one yet. With over 500 local and national food and craft vendors, this street festival is expected to attract thousands.
Although the Atlantic Antic isn’t just food specific, the festival incorporates stages throughout its 10 block radius for live musical performances from a variety of cultural genres.
This event began as a tribute to the assembly of cultures living throughout the Brooklyn borough. Since its inception, this festival not only grew in stature but in real estate as well as it spans from across four neighborhoods from Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue.
