Flatbush Frolic


Flatbush Development Corporation’s Annual Flatbush Frolic Street fair is fast approaching! For the last 40 plus years, the Frolic has grown into one of New York City’s premiere street fairs, attracting over 20,000 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 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, artists, food vendors and corporate vendors/sponsors.
