Event Hints:

  • Don't Carry a Ton of Cash: A massive street fair will unfortunately attract some people who will want to make a quick buck through pickpocketing. Make sure your cash is secure, and don't carry a large amount of it on you if you can help it.
  • Don't Fill Up at One Vendor: There is a wide variety of food, beer, and other delicious treats to try at all the vendors. Don't stay in one area and wander around. You may find some gems that you will want to find after the street fair.
  • The Restaurants Are an Escape: Many local Brooklyn breweries and restaurants have booths at the Brooklyn Atlantic Antic, but they are close to empty when it comes to ordering food at their primary establishment. If you want an escape from the crowd, head into one of the restaurants and enjoy a lunch.
