Feast of San Gennaro

Celebrate the martyred third-century bishop and patron saint of Naples at this 11-day festival that fills the streets of Little Italy every year. Watch the professionals in action at the cannoli-eating competition (Thu 13 2–4pm) and you won't feel so bad about indulging in calorific treats from the food vendors; return daily for live musical performances. On the last Saturday at 2pm, a statue of San Gennaro is carried in a Grand Procession outside the Most Precious Blood Church (109 Mulberry St between Canal and Hester Sts).

Dumbo Arts Festival

Head to this annual three-day arts fest in the culturally rich Brooklyn neighborhood to view the work of more than 500 artists. Drop by local studios, see installations, performance art and works-in-progress in the streets, and take a spin on Jane's Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Atlantic Antic

The busy Brooklyn artery closes down for this outdoor extravaganza, billed as New York City’s largest street fair. But there’s more to see here than dudes hawking socks and Mozzarepas: Among the diverse offerings are live music performances on ten stages and a lineup of international eats.
