Is NYC’s largest street festival its best | thepupdiary.com

This past weekend we headed to Brooklyn to check out the Atlantic Antic, NYC’s largest street festival spanning four neighborhoods along Atlantic Avenue. We can definitely say this was the most crowded NYC street festival we have ever attended! We heard estimates at over 1 million people! We can also say that they had a nice variety of food and activities for everyone — even doggies! We spent lots of time at the Stella & Chewy’s booth! Was it the best NYC street festival? We’re not sure, but we know we will try to come back next year!

Our tip: Arrive early! The festival opens at noon, but we arrived just after 11 am. We had time to walk the festival and plan our stops before the crowds. By 1:00 pm the street is packed!

The festival featured several dog and cat-themed booths including adoption vans from North Shore Animal League and Sean Casey Animal Rescue. It was fun to see our friends from Brooklyn Bark. Other booths featured vet clinics, doggy art, dog treats, food, and merchandise. We learned about From Scratch cat food and Kennis Baptiste doggy art. BarkBox was there with their newest venture, BarkCare.

After the festival, we walked along the river to Brooklyn Bridge Park for the East River ferry back to Manhattan. Another beautiful day in our favorite city!
