Over 500 craft, food and art exhibitors will take over Atlantic Ave between Hicks St and Fourth Ave, with twelve stages of performances to keep you from thinking about the money you're spending. This year's "In Living Color" theme celebrates the diverse heritages and cultures of the neighborhood. Expect a wide range of excellent food.
