The Atlantic Antic, A Brooklyn Street Fair

Near Barclays Center, Atlantic Center Mall, Brooklyn Heights

By

The wonderful, diverse, festive street fair known as the Atlantic Antic stretches along almost two miles of Brooklyn's centrally located artery, Atlantic Avenue. The entire street is closed to traffic, making way for food vendors, stalls selling clothing, artwork, jewelry, pottery, tshirts with Brooklyn flair and more. Local restaurants and bars set up stalls in front of their businesses offering special deals. Look for great bands and music, dance performances, speeches and raffles. This is fun for the whole family.
