Flatbush Frolic

    SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2015 Flatbush Development Corporation’s 40th Annual Flatbush Frolic Street fair is fast approaching! For the last 40 years, the Frolic has grown into one of New York City’s premiere street fairs, attracting over 10,000 visitors and over 150 vendors from all over Brooklyn. This year the Flatbush Frolic will feature food, dance, live music, a pizza eating contest, craft fair, children’s area, main stage, beer garden, a non-for-profit area, local businesses and more! This year for our 40th anniversary we plan on taking the Frolic to the next level. We are putting a call out for local vendors and local musicians that would like to get involved. FDC has been, and remains committed to supporting and highlighting the diversity of merchants and artists from our local community. We are looking for general vendors, food vendors and corporate vendors/sponsors. This year, in response to our growing artistic community, we plan to introduce a craft fair within the Frolic. The craft fair is specifically for handmade arts and crafts, nothing mass produced.
