43rd Annual Atlantic Antic

The 43rd Annual Atlantic Antic Festival on Sunday, September 24th, 2017, spans four neighborhoods with live music and an entire block dedicated to kids.

43rd Annual Atlantic Antic

Atlantic Avenue | From Waterfront to Boeurum Hill

‘The Pulse of Brooklyn’ is the 43rd Annual Atlantic Antic Festival Theme, and if that pulse quickens from the amount of food, vendors, and entertainment lining Atlantic Avenue on Sunday, September 24th, 2017, than more power to you!

The oldest and largest street festival in Brooklyn, New York, is an autumn tradition that, for me, heralds the true end of summer. Spanning four neighborhoods (Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and Downtown Brooklyn) from Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue, the avenue is peppered with live music stages that showcase free outdoor performances and an entire block dedicated to kids with pony rides, bounce houses, and face painting.

But what everyone really comes to the Antic for is the food. With a slogan of “Eat it at the Antic, Walk it off on Atlantic!,” eclectic delicacies are available up and down the 10 blocks that truly show the myriad of heritages that make up Brooklyn. Want to watch someone else eat until they get sick at the Antic? The Chef One 14th Annual Dumpling Eating Contest on this year’s Atlantic Antic™ Main Stage from 2 to 3:30 p.m features 48 professional and amateur eaters competing to devour locally made dumplings in the fastest time. I don't know whether this will be fun or disgusting.
