One of Brooklyn’s oldest, largest, and most beloved street fairs is set to triumphantly return this fall.

The Atlantic Antic Festival will return for its 46th iteration this October, bringing with it small businesses vending all sorts of paraphernalia and all manner of performances on a stretch spanning 10 blocks of the namesake avenue, from Fourth Avenue near the Barclays Center to the Brooklyn waterfront. The festival, like most events, had to be canceled last year due to the coronavirus.

The annual affair, hosted by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation (AALDC), has brought revelry to the stretch since 1974.

The event will take place from noon to 6 pm on Oct. 3, rain or shine, organizers announced earlier this summer.

“The return of the Annual Atlantic Antic is special because the community can once again come together to celebrate the community, cultures, tradition, and food, all in one place,” AALDC said in a statement.

Organizers are encouraging all attendees to be vaccinated.
