Billed as New York’s largest street festival, the Atlantic Antic is back this month for another celebration of local food, music and merchants.
Stretching through Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill, the fair packs in a diverse mix of vendors and performance stages along Atlantic between 4th Avenue and Hicks Street.
You can check out the wares of area shops and, as expected, there will be plenty of food on hand from street fair standards to samplings from local restaurants. You’ll also be able to cheer on participants in the 15th annual dumpling eating contest as they see who can consume the most dumplings in two minutes.
This year’s event includes more than a dozen stages with music and entertainment designed to appeal to a variety of tastes. There will be marching bands, church choirs, DJs, belly dancers, ballet and more. There will also be the awarding of the Atlantic Avenue Ambassador Award to New York State Senator Velmanette Montgomery at 4:15 p.m on the main stage.
The Atlantic Antic takes place on Sunday, September 23 from 12 to 6 p.m. You can check out the full schedule of events and download a festival map here.
