The Atlantic Antic Festival

494 Atlantic Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11217


Since its creation in 1974, millions of people have visited Atlantic Avenue between the Brooklyn Waterfront and what is now the Barclays Center yearly to partake in the glorious celebration of culture, cuisine, community and commerce known as the Atlantic Antic. Recognized as "New York's best street festival" and the "mother of all street fairs," this mile long stage and global street bazaar features 500 artists, crafters, food purveyors, performers, and non-profit community based organizations.

Atlantic Antic is the signature event of the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation (AALDC), whose mission is to further economic development, historic preservation and cultural enrichment on Atlantic Avenue from Fourth Avenue to the Waterfront and surrounding areas.
