BROOKLYN — The Atlantic Antic Street Festival is back for its 39th year of transforming Brooklyn’s commercial stretch into an outdoor party with food, music and shopping.

The annual street fair, which will span 10 blocks on Sept. 29, will feature more than 500 craft and food vendors and 100 local businesses, including Waterfront Ale House, Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie and Red Hook Lobster Pound, according to a press release.

Sixpoint Brewery will be serving their annual “Antic Amber” and “Free Range Wine” will be making their street fair debut with more than 200 wines.

And the “Kids Block” is back with pony rides and face painting between Boerum and Smith Streets along Atlantic Avenue.

Musicians and DJs, like “Brandi & The Alexanders,” French rock band “Les Sans Culottes” and the “Windsor Terrors,” will bring live performances to Atlantic Antic on stages lined from Hicks Street to Third Avenue along the commercial corridor.

The Atlantic Antic is the “Mother of All Street Fairs,” said Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, who will be crowned the “King of Brooklyn” at the annual festival, according to a press release.

“Bravo to the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation and the many residents and business owners who transform Atlantic Avenue into a ‘Moveable Feast’ for gourmands,” said Markowitz, in a statement.

“Just remember, with so much delicious food ‘Eat it at the Antic, walk it off on Atlantic!’”
