The 40th annual Flatbush Frolic street fair is happening this Sunday, September 20 starting at 11 a.m.
Past years of the premiere Brooklyn street fair have attracted more than 10,000 visitors and 150 vendors from throughout the borough. This year, for its 40th anniversary, organizer Flatbush Development Corporation plans to bring the Frolic to the next level.
Free events will include a pizza-eating contest, wine and beer garden, arts and crafts, NYPD rock-climbing wall, and a chess challenge. Additionally, all day there will be a free kids’ art mural, FDNY-hosted fire safety programming, and a mind and body fitness area.
In addition to the food, vendors and activities, there will be a full lineup of music from noon to 5 p.m., with both a main stage and a kids stage.
The frolic will take place on Cortelyou Road from Coney Island Avenue to Ocean Avenue in Victorian Flatbush, also known as Ditmas Park.
