The Antic, presented by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation, is a uniquely Brooklyn street festival, and said to be the biggest in NYC. About a million people show up to enjoy local artisans, musicians, belly dancers and food, food, food -- with 600 vendors and ten live performance stages.
Families enjoy pony rides, storytelling, and face painting on a block dedicated to kid-friendly activities.
The theme of this year’s Antic is “The Youth Are Our Future.” The AALDC granted scholarships this year to twenty-three local children from low-income families to attend summer programs based in Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene and downtown Brooklyn. Program partners like Mark Morris Dance Company and Brooklyn Ballet will be among the youth groups performing.
